    I don't have any idea about further maths at GCSE. I don't know how it is graded at all. I don't know the curriculum for it. I have to take it because I have a good grade in maths, but I don't know how to approach revision or how many marks I need to pass.

    Syllabus
    This year's grade boundaries (page 2).
    If you're self studying then you'll need a textbook.
    And past past papers can be found here.

    Do you know which exam board you're taking it with? Well if you do, you can look up the specification (syllabus) and it will tell you what you need to know but your teacher will know all this. How it's graded depends on the grade boundaries but generally 60% is a C, 70% is a B, 80% is an A and 90% is an A*
