I'm really stressed about the early entry maths exams in November. Everyone in my class is set for A's and A* who seemingly get maths naturally, while for me it has been a subject I have struggled with for a really long time and does not come naturally. My teacher is poor and has gone through the course way too quickly, I feel unmotivated or pushed and everyone had little faith in me that I will do well. I'm struggling with maths and circle theorems and generally have no understanding! Can anyone help ease my nerves and suggest effective ways to be able to have a knack for maths in the weeks running up to my exams?

Don't worry about it! Write down all your areas that you need to work on the most- like circle theorems and study them until you understand them. You don't need to study for hours on end every night but you need to revise on a regular basis, that's where I went wrong with my GCSEs. If then you still don't understand a topic, go to a teacher that seems to go through topics more thorough or ask your own teacher for some worksheets or something. Also, my school let people redo their early entry exams in June/July if they didn't get the grade they hoped for but I don't know if that is every school.
