    So I’ve failed my maths GCSE twice now and now the government has released this new specification which makes things a thousand times more complicated. How am I supposed to pass this and not get caught up in my college course which I often care about more.

    You need to treat it like another A level or something in its own right. Its easy to get distracted by the rest of your course, but you need to pass, so you cnat neglect it.

    Just draw up a plan for passing. Work out why you failed. It has to be different
    because your lasr plans didnt work.

    Go through the syllabus and find out what you dont understand then work on it. there are plenty of workbooks so just do x hours a week and stick to a plan.

    See what online help there is plus consider getting a tutor. Sooner you pass then the sooner you can leave it behind.
