    I am currently resisting my GCSE Maths this year to try and get a grade C, this is my first time sitting Foundation.
    Last year I sat Higher and I was two marks off a C.
    However, the college in a desperate attempt to improve Maths GCSE results from 5% (last yr figures) means all D grade students sit Foundation.
    Firstly, does anyone have any tips for sitting the Foundation tier?
    What are the main topics that appear?
    Best tips for revising for the exam?
    What topics are predicted to appear in the Foundation paper?
    Are predicted papers normally reliable?
    Any other information you can provide would be greatly appreciated
    So far I have done a few past papers, and with two of them made a list of stuff to revise, then I will do a few more past papers and see if my score improves.

    Thanks XD
