    I took both QTS tests a couple of days ago. I passed the English but failed Maths by two marks. I'm really disappointed. in the mental arithmetic section I made a stupid mistake by changing my correct answer (I doubted myself) and when I realised, I didn't have time to change it back. My other problem was that I spent to much time on the questions I didn't understand and found myself rushing at the end.

    Is there anyone who failed first time and managed to pass on their second attempt? I have a conditional offer to study Drama and I'm concerned I won't be able to pass the exam as Maths has never been a strong point. The section I was not successful in (according to the letter) was written arithmetic, does anyone have any good websites/links that would help for revision. I previously bought a revision book that I am going to work through again and my friend who is training to be a Maths teacher is going to tutor me 5 days prior to the exam.
