    perfect the B grade/A grade & A* grade topics and do papers A LOT. Use hegartymaths, he goes through everything. He also does questions for every topic in each video so complete them. When you mark past papers, do not mark generously but harshly and make sure you end up with consistent A* grades or higher.

    Keep in mind you can't be doing A* topics if you can't do the topics for the other grades so just basically revise the whole syllabus

    I literally did every past paper that's ever been used. If you start early and do like one a week it's such a handy way to do it. Start by ignoring the time limit and just going through the questions - seeking help with anything you don't yet know. Eventually once you're confident with the topics you can start timing yourself and doing them in 'exam conditions'. The thing I found most important is to tackle problems as they arise instead of skipping them and not really coming back to them! Hope this helps!

    This why is why I stated that she should perfect B grade and above content.
    I assumed she would know the C grade and below because she is aiming for an A* and it is pretty basic.

    In the new 9-1 GCSEs there's going to be a lot more multi-step problems which requires you to use knowledge from different topics all in one question. Unfortunately there aren't many past papers that reflect this. It's important to develop a mathematical intuition about how to solve a problem. When you're revising quadratic equations, you know that you're going to have to use quadratic equations to solve the problems. In the exam, it will be much less obvious.
