Here's some tips for your Maths GCSE: All I can say is past paper questions. Only start doing the past paper questions once you are sure you have covered every topic.
- 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 used to record myself talking and listen to it when commuting or something so I remembered every little detail. Yet again, once I knew all the content I did past papers.
- I found recording myself saying the content and listening back to it when I'm travelling really helped me
- I made sure I knew all the content before I attempted any past paper questions
- Use keywords in your answers, that's what gets you the mark
- Do a good amount of past papers, if you complete them all attempt the IGCSE ones
- Definitely mark every paper you do, if you are struggling to mark it ask your teacher to do it for you
- See where you have gone wrong and look to improve on the section for the next paper you do
You can always use the TSR Study Resources for any subject, pretty helpful revision material on there. Also there is a very useful Study Planner on TSR which you may use, if you find that timetables are something you don't stick to then make a list of things to do per day/week and tick it off as you go along.
Check out these awesome revision tips by a fellow TSR user.
Use the Forest application on your phone to focus.
If you need any help TSR is a great platform to ask on. I can help best with your GCSE Mathematics if you like, so you can PM me whenever. What other subjects do you do I may be able to help?

revision techniques- https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/g/d...ow-to-revise-5
Study timetable in case if you want to make one and don't know where to start:
These methods pretty go with all the subjects...
Method of revision:
- mind maps
- teaching others
- recording yourself and listening back to it
- repeating things aloud
- revising with classmates
- drawing diagrams
- making a song of it
- a silly story to help it stick
- making notes from textbook then summarising those further into your own words (try having a limit on number of words to stick to key points)
- writing things over and over again
- using colour
Make a list of all the topics, prioritise them by ordering in terms of which you need more help with/need more time to go over, then tackle each one
If there is something you're particularly stuck on, ask the teacher for help!
Get practise from exam and practise questions! It will help to reinforce things and find your weaker areas. hope that helps you a little bit
