    Hi everyone,

    I will be in year 9 after summer and will start studying IGCSE Mathematics as I'm in set 1. I'm wondering what is necessary to do for me to achieve 100% in the exams a part from self study and tutors. I would really appreciate if you could help? Also, I know I will do additional maths in year 11, so is there any else regarding the preparation that is necessary? Thank you very much!

    It's brilliant you're starting to plan this early on.
    1 - get a good revision guide, I'd recommend the CGP ones
    2 - get your hands on as many past and practice papers as possible, you can buy them online or you can photocopy the ones the school provide you with
    3 - prioritise your attendance at school
    4 - do your best to keep up with homework and what's going on in lessons, if you don't understand, make sure to catch up in time for the next lesson
    5 - work on your exam technique, maths is an easy subject to gain marks in because you don't always have to know the full answer or have the right answer, as long as you give it a good shot you'll gain marks.

    I self-taught Maths GCSE in 4 months and achieved 84% - this is more than possible for you!
