    So I'm in Year 11 right now and I'll be having my mocks in December for al my subjects except Geography which I am taking in November.

    I bought CGP books for Math according to the right spec along with workbooks and exam style questions.
    What do you recommend in how to revise for Math?
    Where do I start? And how did you do it?


    Well, firstly, I’d start with the books. Then questions.

    You don’t revise Maths, you practice.

    What helped me tremendously throughout gcse maths was something called Mathswatch. I had a Mathswatch disc, which my school gave me. It helped me so much, because the disc talked me through methods while also demonstrating them to me, so then I could practice the methods. The disc also gives you some practice questions to test if you know the topic and can remember the methods, which really helped me, because practicing is a key part of maths. Mathswatch was a huge help, so much better than textbooks (for me anyway), it was much less boring because I wasn’t staring at a page and feeling as demotivated. Do try and get one if you can while you still have many months until you do your exams. I would highly recommend it. That’s how I revised maths in exam season, because I will admit, I hardly revised for my maths mocks, which wasn’t good, that was before I got Mathswatch. You could maybe suggest to your school to order you a disc, because it’s so worth it.
