    I received a 'predicted paper' for maths the other day(our exam board is edexcel) and on the paper it says it's from a website called 'Mathsgenie.co.uk' which i've never heard of.... I was just wondering as in regards to whether it is good for revision and whether they get predict alot of the material correctly in the 'predicted paper'.

    PS> i also use a site called onmaths for the same purpose and wanted some guidance on this site too?

    Kind regards,

    I have never used on maths but mathsgenie is good and PiXL is also good. I would say the best thing though is to practice weaker topics.

    Yep, I use it a lot when it comes to revising maths as it has videos explaining different topics clearly and topic based tests. Highly recommended

    Maybe see if their predictions for the paper you've already done were accurate or not

    Hello Can you confirm that the questions on Maths Genie are correct? I have noticed a few which I feel are incorrect such as (2t^-3)-2 being 1/4t^6, I make this out to be 64t^6I am unsure whether I am wrong as I though raising powers to a power would mean (x) them and if you (x) 2 negatives it makes a positive and 2 raised to 6 would be 64 not a quater? Thanks

    Im not saying there are no mistakes in mathsgenie but I haven't found any.
    Y ou are making a fairly common error when applying indices to numbers inside brackets.
    The power of -3 is only connected to the t, and not the 2
    (2t^-3)^-2 = 2^-2 x (t-^3)^-2
