    I'm starting year 11 and will be the first year to sit the new maths GCSE and I left year 10 by getting a D in my mock. When doing past papers in class and at home I always got a C (Foundation). But now I'm really scared that I won't do so well. Is there any way I could improve my grade? and how long should I spend practising a topic? Also, if anyone has any useful Edexcel Foundation 9-1 topic lists can you please link it below?Thanks

    Identify topics that you struggle on and adress them. Don't just leave them and hope that it doesn't come up in the exam. Also try and practice harder questions rather than easy questions that you can do comfortably.
