    Hi guys,
    I need serious help, I'm in year 11 and just wondering how other people are doing in maths, if you're getting grade 8/9's on your mocks please could you tell me how you revise for maths (if you do revise!)
    I recently sat all three papers for my mocks and did kind of shocking I got 39 (paper 1), 44 (paper 2) and 43 (paper 3) all out of 80😁which was a grade 6 overall (old grade B.)
    I'm in top set and I actually got some of the better scores within the class (one person got 13 on a whole paper) but I'm really really worried about doing bad in maths, I was getting a and a* grades on the old spec but I can't do this new spec at all😫
    My teacher doesn't even know what she's doing either, I've had her for two years and all she does is confuse me more.
    So please, someone who is doing well on the new spec teach me your ways😫🙏

    when learning or revising topics, make you sure fully understand the concept and why it works. Then do problem solving questions where you have to apply your knowledge and skills in an unfamiliar situation .
