    Hey guys - I haven't done any maths work for the past three years and am resitting to get from a D to a C for uni. Does anyone have any advice for revision? My mental maths is strong in my opinion but I struggled to explain my workings out.

    Does this site have all the topics covered? - http://www.examsolutions.net/maths-r...her/module.php

    Is anyone up for teaching me on skype? :C

    I think your best bet would be just going over past papers from the exam board your sitting with constantly.
    In terms of writing down your workings out, sometimes it's just having to slow down your thought process almost. Looking at worked examples of questions tends to help. if there's a particular question you wouldn't be sure on how to show feel free to message me with it and I can send you a photo with the worked solution if that would help

    Get MathsWatch: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MathsWatch...0AAOSwoudW2tI1

    I got it for so cheap. Don't buy it directly from MathsWatch; they'll charge you like £100 or something ridiculous. I think the worksheets come with it as well as the videos.

    The specification that describes them can be found on the WJEC web site
    http://www.wjec.co.uk/qualifications...ics&level=GCSE
    It's pretty much the same as every other GCSE maths content
    Buy a revision guide or workbook that's specific to WJEC such as:
    http://www.bookdepository.com/book/9...FUI8Gwod99wMyQ
    And do as many WJEC past papers as you can find (also on the web site)

    If you need specific help, post a detailed question in the maths exams forum and show what you have already tried.
