    For those who have passed mathematics GCSE what paper did you feel most confident in? Calculator or non calculator? What tips would you give someone aiming for a 5? I use mathsgenie and do u guys think it is good enough or is the content not up to date with the new 9-1???

    A lot of people found non calculator easier but I was always stronger in calculator XD
    I also used maths genie and it's a really good site,aim to look over at least one topic a day for now and be sure to check out the papers on there too
    Get as many practice papers as you can done, I can't stress how useful these are!
    If there's anything you don't understand, I'd say ask your teacher to explain it asap, don't leave it thinking you'll revise it later, otherwise you'll pile up a bunch of topics you don't know
    Good luck
