    Hey there,

    Here are a few tips to move up from an A to an A* in your Mathematics GCSE :
    • Work through the ExamSolutions videos if you ever feel you feel like you are stuck on any section
    • Feel free to post in the TSR GCSE Maths Forum if you are unsure about something (make sure provide the question and what you have already done)
    • Do every single past paper
    • Mark your papers and see where you have gone wrong
    • Look to do IGCSE papers once you have done all of the GCSE ones
    I hope this helps.

    Well I'm in the same position you are, however my friend i have made progress, i managed to get an A* in a paper I did about a month ago but now i have regressed and am stuck on that A life.

    I would suggest watching people on Youtube and go through past papers, theres one guy who is absolutely amazing His name is 'Achieve Maths'.
    Another thing i would suggest is using the GCSE Edexcel worksheets ( Found Here: http://www.mathsmadeeasy.co.uk/gcsem...s-AB-grade.htm)
    If you go through each topic thoroughly and try these worksheets and lots of past papers you should fill all the holes in your Mathematical knowledge and begin to live the A* life.
