    So i'm not doing too well in my GCSE's right now... I really want to do well and I feel somewhat ambitious. I used to be really good but after a year of literally almost no maths because our year 10 class was ruined because our teacher could not control the trouble making students.After that 1 year i have declined so badly that i almost feel like i cannot compete to some good year 7's in maths. My grade drops in maths has caused me to really become quite almost upsetting because i know that this will bode very badly for me if it doesn't get better.

    Being completely honest I've resulted to spending most of my time playing games because that is the only thing I really feel like i can enjoy ever.

    I know for a fact my gaming stunts my learning but even when im actually motivated to do the revising to catch up to get a great grade i dont know where to start and here is my main question.

    I must find some way to revise i know maths is my weakest but when i go to revise it i cant do anything, I open a maths book and begin from the first page or even try to find questions I cant do then i see the question i do a few then i find a question i cant do and after many attempts I honestly feel disheartened and then feel like i might as well go back to playing games because i dont feel like i m achieving anything.

    So how can I start up with this revision as I am so concerned for my future and I really want to do well for my GCSE's so i can feel better when entering a college or Sixth Form.

    What im looking for is any tips or methods or where and how to start with revision on any subject but mainly maths.

    Thank you for any help in advance
