    Well I'm in year 11 and my GCSEs are coming up in around 5 months I'm wondering can I actually achieve a grade 7 in maths? I've always had a natural ability in maths but these past years I've just not been good at maths I don't know if it's down to concentration in class or revision probably both. I'm at a grade 4/5 right now which is like a high C and I'm wondering can I somehow get to a grade 7 for GCSEs by revising maths a few hours a day and I don't mind this because I actually enjoy maths, I'm just wondering if this is possible.

    If you're wiling to put the effort in of course it's possible!!

    To get the best grade, all you need to do is just study the topics and just practice past papers constantly. You don't necessarily need teachers to learn gcse maths especially if you have that natural ability. Also there are many websites and videos that can teach you everything you need to know in minutes. An example is examssolutions, that man is amazing. Also try to know what you need to learn, just look up the syllabus and go through it all so you have covered everything. After you've learned everything, just practice and practice questions.
    If you put the effort in I bet you'll be at the top of your class in a month.
