    • Thread Starter

    So, I sat my exam in June, got a C, with no revision, I'm resitting for a better grade, can I get an A* with 2 months of self study?

    Get yourself a revision workbook and go through all of it.... like this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/GCSE-Edexce...HMRRYG0R84V9J5 (it's easy to find one with a quick Google search)

    I used to tutor for GCSE maths and these books saved my students' lives and my own GCSE maths. Just make sure you go through all of it, don't skip the tricky bits or use the answer page at the end.

    It's definitely possible but you need to start now and not leave it to the last minute.

    Some of the workbook will inevitably feel pointless but it's worth going through all of it to ensure you know EVERYTHING you need to
