    I take it you're doing Scottish qualifications? In that case, I've heard good things about Scholar (run by Heriot Watt Uni) which your school can help you access. I was using it for Higher Physics and Chem mainly but the maths section is allegedly very useful. Also, goes without saying, but the SQA website for past papers is essential.

    Thanks dude. Yeah I have heard of it before, never really used it though.

    It was very good for getting your head around some of the stranger concepts in Higher physics which is what I used it for 90% of the time. As for the other sciences, I did use it a little for chemistry here and there but didn't use it all for biology. I don't know if the content has been updated since I used it about 2 years ago, but sometimes they do like to add some further information in there which may not be in the course itself - it doesn't do any harm unless it's taking up a lot of your time.

    I should also mention that Higher maths is a bit more of a step up from Int 2 (or Nat 5 now?) than most other subjects.

    Bitesize has revision notes and quizzes for any subjects.
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/subjects/z38pycw

    there is a website called IXL though you do have to pay monthly or yearly but it is very good.
    https://uk.ixl.com/math/

    Also, there is MyMaths. most schools give students usernames and passwords for this website.
    https://www.mymaths.co.uk/

    MathsWatch is good but you have to pay per year. schools often give students username and passwords.
    https://www.mathswatchvle.com/

    I dont know any youtube channels for maths but if you're struggling with science then this channel can help https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZ2...GXwXQJMfHGGijg

    The hsn notes (
    http://www.hsn.uk.net/higher-maths/notes/) are quite good: They give a comprehensive overview of each topic, with a few examples to show you how it's done.

    If your school uses MyMaths, that's pretty good for an introduction/quick look at a topic, with interactivity and quite a number of practice questions. It can be difficult to find some topics, though, as it's designed for the English education system rather than the Scottish one. Most of the Higher stuff's under A-Level (Core 1 and 2), but it's usually best to use the search bar first.

    Khan Academy (
    https://www.khanacademy.org/) can be really good, but it's designed for the US system and sometimes they miss out stuff, or do stuff that you don't need to know. If nothing else, the videos can be good.

    When you get onto past paper questions, DLBMaths (
    https://www.youtube.com/user/DLBmaths/videos) is a great channel. He goes through past paper questions (for Nat 5, Higher and Advanced Higher), and explains what he's doing very clearly. He's also got this year's Nat 5 paper up, if you really can't wait.
