    how do you think i should revise for maths gcse and any advice on year 11

    I would say it 100% depends on you and what you struggle with. I'm an A-level student now so I don't do maths anymore but for GCSE maths I got an A in the end (but before the exam I was getting usually all Bs in maths. I had a maths textbook for GCSE, so I'm not sure if you have one of those, but I went through the book page by page and wrote a list of everything it was covering (admittedly, I could have saved a lot of time and just used the contents page or wrote it up in word and printed it) and then highlighted it (I used red, amber and green for stuff I did know, I didn't know, and things I needed practice in) and then I just practiced more and more until everything I at least recognised from exam questions. If you need help with individual subjects (eg, trig, quadratic equations, etc.) I suggest going to your teacher or even just googling it, I used BBC bitesize for a lot of maths stuff. Then try and get every mock paper you can and just practice. That helped me until everything in my list was green other than one or two things I got help from my teacher and some friends from. Again, it's all about how you learn but that's what I did, I'm assuming you're a year 11 now, so you have a bunch of time to get on top of things - good luck!
