    Try the Edexcel IGCSE, much better imo.

    Coursework for maths, never heard of that. Well the IGCSE for edexcel is linear anyway.
    Ah if you're already entered you need to identify your weak areas. Analyse the past papers and see where you lose marks and don't make those same mistakes again. Learn any topics you don't know.

    Good luck.
