    So, I'm doing edexcel maths (higher) and currently as a means to revise I've opened the textbook, found a list of things I can't do and look youtube videos of how to do them. Is there a better way? Also does anyone have a list of things that come up in each paper (e.g. non calc and calc?) thanks in advance

    I am doing a bunch of past papers, then correcting them and making learning points, and then focus on those using the textbook and youtube videos to learn about what I don't know.

    My recommendation is simply practice practice practice. The Cornell Maths 5-a-day are great. A lot of things can come up in either paper, so be prepared. Your school might give you a list of topics that are likely to come up on the second exam based on what came up in the first one.

    Good things to revise are circle theorems because you get a lot of easy marks, and lots of practice on the harder questions, such as the funnel one or hannahs sweets from last year.

    my advise is go through every maths topic and use mr barton, corbet maths which have exam style questions on each topic .work through it and u will achieve an a*.
