Is getting a 5 hard watch

    • Thread Starter

    Is a 5 or even a 4 difficult to achieve in GCSE mathematics? What's your opinions? And if you have any tips plz let me know.

    I did the old Maths paper when it was graded using letters.

    Personally, it's not hard to achieve a C but only if you study and cover the topics required. I did fail my Maths GCSE five times but that's because I never got the teaching and never studied because of personal problems. The year I got taught the syllabus, was the year I passed it.

    This year I'm aiming for a 7. If I can do it, so can you.

    Getting some CGP Workbooks and Revision books for the course you're taking (higher or foundation - if you're only wanting a 5 then a foundation book would be more suitable) will help you immensely too.

    Good luck!

    I got a 5 in Maths GCSE last summer and tbh it wasn’t too hard because the grade boundaries were low af but I’m not sure about this year’s one. My advice is to aim a grade higher so you can be secured to pass x
