    I know for a fact i have to retake my maths edexcel gcse in november as i got a E or a D. I need things explained to me very very basically like a child to perfect at it, when it comes to maths. Proper detail and the topic from scratch. Do you have any useful tips or useful resources like websites or buying something? Please this is very important for me and i need to prepare as i would only have 2 months to get a C. Thank you! Please don't hate.

    No worries. 2 months is plenty of time to work to a C standard, maybe higher if you put in the effort.

    The one thing you really need is the textbook for your course. Use that and work through it, topic by topic, until you are confident.

    You can also use youtube videos and things like that (hegartymaths might be one for GCSE, I'm not sure) for any topics where you're stuck. Otherwise, practice until you're confident with everything, then do past papers.

    Good luck!

    Use MrBartonMaths - he has questions on every single topic, (foundation and higher) our whole school used his site for revision! Go onto 'GCSE maths takeaway' and click on a topic, if you struggle, there are also videos and worked solutions to help you see how to get through the questions. Good luck!

    Oh yes I've heard from him but my teacher would only tell us about the past papers. I never even knew there are videos and worked solutions. I highly appreciate it, thank you a lot.
