    I get frustated when I revise maths every and I just can't get the grades that I want to, now with the new GCSE of 9-1 the question aare getting hard. The good things is that on the higher paper you need 40% of the marks to pass in each paper. I lossing hope of myself and I don't know what to do. I already doing intervations in my school, I have join in a tution, I have been doing past paper ect.... I need help I just need to get a minium of a B in maths to do A levels maths.

    I would say keep practicing questions that you struggle with and try and learn the content and actually understand it so you actually know what you're doing and why. However I think that if you do eventually struggle to get a B (or whatever the equivalent is with the new grading system) then I think you should seriously think twice before choosing to do A level maths. Your GCSE knowledge needs to be sound before doing A level as it builds on the A* GCSE stuff.
    Having said that there is still a lot of time to improve before the exams and so you can still drag your grade up. But really try and understand what your doing in class and you will do well no doubt.
Do you think parents should charge rent?
