    Like I said to others before, I just did a lot of practice. Do lots of exam questions, textbook questions and if you're not strong on a topic, watch videos on it or read a revision guide or notes. Do not revise for Maths by reading notes!!!

    Wholeheartedly agree with this. Reading notes for any subject tbh is not productive revision.

    I would recommend worksheets such as these.
    Excellent source. For those whom need to watch a video explanation as well, try www.mathsgenie.co.uk

    It also can be sorted by level of difficulty as well as topic areas.

    Awful, I'm borderline 5 but I've never actually gotten one and I need a 6 to get into my first choice college. First choice college or not, I'm not gonna be happy with anything less than a 6 anyway. Teach has a bit more faith in us despite the underperformance from everyone; she predicted the highest people in the class a 6 so I did bag an interview with that college but I'm really struggling with some of the content and the new question style.

    Have you seen the Maths 9-1 Revision Cards that are available? They are extremely helpful and go over each topic in the syllabus.

    You can find them on Amazon if you're interested.

    Practising all the old spec past papers will be an enormous help. The more questions you attempt, the better you will understand how to solve them and hence exceed your current grade I'm sure.

    Yeah, but for the new GCSE, you don't get the novels, anthology and play in the exam to make it easier. You literally have to walk in without no guidance from a text.

    No one has ever been allowed anthologies or books in the exam though.

    You obviously pick the videos you need help on, and click on playlist on YouTube, he has lots of playlists on different topics.
