    You can get workbooks which are really good, just check that it is the right one for your syllabus and exam board and practise papers. Lots and lots*of practice papers...

    Mathswatch is amazing
    If you can't get this, then try GCSE bitesize; it's great.
    And one thing I must stress, is PAST PAPERS! - www.mrbartonmaths.com; you'll find the solutions too. I'd advice you to revise content first, and then trying past papers.

    Do you happen to have access to mymaths at all through your school? It's very helpful if you struggle with any particular topics and provides online homeworks etc.

    One thing I found helpful is after you finish a topic, make review notes of the key sections. So for example, if you were doing a topic about circles, you'd highlight that the circumference of a circle is 2πr, the area is πr^2 and so on so forth. I'd also recommend sticking in an example of a question to do with that topic.

    Once you've finished all your topics, make sure you do plenty of past papers! They allow you to see what you can improve on and where you are losing marks, so you can then go over those topics again.

    I've tutored/mentored a couple of year 10s/11s doing their GCSE mathematics on the edexcel exam board, so if you ever need any help, feel free to drop me a message and i'll try and explain as best as possible. Failing that, if you get stuck, everyone on here is super friendly so just create a thread and you'll get help in no time!

    Kesh maths for topic booklets for Edexcel syllabus
    Maths watch - great for worksheets and video tutorials
    Past papers

    I'm currently working in Maths intervention at a secondary and these are the main things we use to tutor GCSE pupils. Also not sure if you have access to pixl maths but I've heard it's quite good for revision as well.
