    Is it possible to revise maths independently using mathsgenie and some textbooks but obviously working really really hard? Without any sort of teacher/tutor?

    Well our teacher just put questions on the board and never actually taught anything, and I just did Mathswatch and loads of past papers, so I guess?

    I'm studying an FSMQ independently, so yes, definitely. I also previously lived in Canada and took Grade 9 Math a year early. I was given time in class to do this independently- instead I watched Sherlock and Bones on my laptop and switched tabs if a teacher ever came over, and started working about 6 weeks before the exam. I got 95%. Maths seems to be the easiest subject to study without a teacher in my opinion- a Maths proof is usually much more effective than a teacher's explanation.

    Well I was given a login by my maths teacher, and I forgot what the login was, otherwise I would have given it to you to save you some money :c. I checked mathsgenie and it's not much different from mathswatch, just use that and maybe other resources like corbettmaths and MANY past papers, and you should be fine.
