    My school entered me for an early sit on GCSE maths so I took my maths GCSE early in year 10 and passed with a C grade on a foundation paper. After that I wasn't expected to carry on with maths.

    However, most universities that I am looking to apply to want a A/B grade in maths for most of the courses I am looking at (Psychology)

    I am considering retaking maths to do get a higher grade on the higher paper. I'm pretty sure my college will let me do so, but, I just don't know where to start. I haven't done maths in two years (in year 12 now) so I am trying to get a head start in the summer holidays before I start having actually lessons at college.

    Where to start?
    Does anyone have a checklist to help?

    i learnt most of my stuff from youtube videos and past papers, everything is so repetitive you could predict what questions come last.

    Here's a brilliant site where you can learn a majority of the GCSE maths skills:
    http://www.mrbartonmaths.com/gcsevideos.htm
    Some of the videos are long but you need to dedicate abit of time in order to learn these topics in the GCSE spec.
    Happy Revising!

    yes, first understand the concepts using the youtube videos suggested by others and then PAST PAPERS - do every single one, all the predicted papers as well that can be found online. they will be the key to an A/B in maths!

    If it is just GCSE then I would recommend buying a CGP maths GCSE revision guide really helpful. If you get stuck with any GCSE topics please feel free to message me
