    So it's just hit me that my maths GCSE is next week (edexcel), and there's quite a few topics that I'm still kinda iffy on. I'm also busy all weekend so I only have four days to revise. I'm home-schooled so I've just been doing past papers for the past month or so (although I took a week off to focus on biology). I was originally were using sites such a Conquer Maths but it was taking too long and there was too much material on there that I wouldn't actually need for the exam. The only problem with doing past papers is that I have to look up the answers to questions that I find hard individually and there's not really much structure to that. I was getting high Bs in papers before I took a week off from maths, but I did a paper today and got a C :/

    I'm very good at maths, as in I find it relatively easy to learn new material, but I realllllyyy lack motivation and I don't really know where to start, tbh. It feels like lots of revision websites lack context, and I'd struggle to know which method to apply when answering questions in the exam, but trying to learn stuff by looking at mark schemes is turning out to be difficult, because the information doesn't sink in quite enough.

    Does anyone know of any online resources that can help my cram? Like, preferably everything in 2 days? My mum said she'll be really p*ssed off if I don't get at least an A because I'm capable of getting an A* if I work hard enough. Also if I get all As in the three GCSEs I'm doing this year, I get a new phone, and I REALLY need a new phone.

    Here are exam questions on all the topics in the maths course.

    My advice would be to look at all the incorrect answers you got on that and then revise them topics before having a go at the questions on here about this topic

    There is also https://www.mymaths.co.uk as well which is decent with there being booster packs. You just need a login which your school may have given you. If not, ask them

    Good luck, and if you lack motivation, think of that nice new phone after all your hard work over the two years pay off!

    I also have done hardly any revision for maths im so lazy and just fall asleep in the middle of studying.

    Why are you busy on the weekend?? if possible you should try and free it so you can dedicate maybe one whole day just for maths and go over the topics you arent good at

    You want to move from a C to an A* in 4 days but you can't study on the weekends because you're busy? Learn to prioritise and be busy on the weekends STUDYING, if you really want what you say you want.

    I go to a music conservatoire on Saturdays so they're always a no go, but I have a one-off piano concert on Sunday so I'm not free then either unfortunately. I'd revise all weekend if I could but it just ain't gunna happen
