If you're doing edexcel I would really suggest getting the books from the REVISE series as they seem really good. The key thing in maths is just to practice and practice. I got a 7+ in my November mocks.

What website do you go to revise on and how do you structure your maths revision? In the mock that I had in November I had a grade 4+. Now I'm sort of worry about my grade because I want to get a grade 7.

Well, personally I didn't revise for my mock because we weren't that pre-warned on it and since I love maths, I prioritised other subjects. However, if you've gotten your mock papers back or just do a set of spec papers on the exam board website, look at where you suck and focus on those areas. For instance, in my mock I sucked at quadratic graphs and finding the minimum point. Therefore, I know I need to look at that and I'll try to find exercises online to help. Website wise, my school has provided me with a log in for my maths, hegarty maths and maths watch but I don't know if they are any help dependent on your school

Does your school run a maths clinic? I would suggest attending would be helpful.

I'd advise, if you have trouble with answering exam questions, 'bland.in'.
It's a maths website with Edexcel Mathematics GCSE on there, and the 9-1 exam system

Hello, I was put on foundation maths when I was in set 2 a few years ago and received 2/3s throughout ,I never got it but in yesr 10 i tried so hard just listening in class and understanding the material covered and if I didn’t understand I’d put my hand up. Now I’m in year 11 and got 5 in all mocks and papers and got 99/100 on my last mock so put on higher and so far I’ve got a level 7 and a level 6 in p1 and p2. The best thing to do is not learning all the formulas and just reading the question and understanding what it means by like factories which means brackets or something. That helped me a lot too. So in short terms
> listen throughly in class , if you understand what u need to do it will be a lot easier to do the questions
> find out what key terms mean etc lcm/hcf/square root and factorise and all them things

I made this thread 2 years ago so it's abit late seeing this but thanks for the advice anyway XD. i ended up with a 6 and ive just finished AS mathematics just to update everyone. I guess it's weird looking back cos back then i wouldn't have imagined being able to be in the position to do maths. Il be heading off to uni year to do physics.
