    Hey there,

    I am a older student retaking my GCSE Maths paper this November, i was wondering who has taken the papers, ideally foundation Edexcel.

    My question is, by studying and just doing past papers, will this give me a bigger enough range to prepare me, or should i still go in depth on different topic's which don't seem to pop up in the exams so often?

    Being an older student who royally failed the first time, i don't want to stress my self out and waste time on topics that may never arise, when i can be confident in the ones i really need.



    it is probably a good idea to google the specification for the new maths course which can give you a outline for the subjects covered. Also you should probably get a revision book for the new specification

    Thank you , I did buy myself one from Amazon other day. It has so much in it that I feel completely overwhelmed now and a little scared.
