i want to get dat 8 in gcse maths watch

    • Thread Starter

    so basically, math is my favorite subject( and probably my best subject)
    and i really want to get a 8 in the new gcse. I'm predicted a 7 for gcse math but i want to achieve higher then that( not that 7 is a bad grade). in lesson, i really feel like i'm working at a level 8 but however, the only problem is i seem to never do as well in tests compared to my actual performance (in year 10, i mostly got 7s and i got only one grade 8 in one of the tests). so whats the best revision tips and methods you recommend me so i could get that 8 in maths?

    Don't worry about your predicted grade, after all it is only a prediction: you achieve higher than that.
    Maths is all about practise so it is best to practise as much as you can (and daily). Also doing past papers would help greatly and would improve you grades massively since exam questions are reused again and again in papers.
    I suggest checking out gcse maths exam papers for previous years and doing a few a day to keep it fresh in your mind.
    Good luck.
