    Is there any really good way for revising for maths other than doing lots of question? Sometimes I got over the methods but I feel the only real way is to do question. And I was wondering what other people though

    I think the only way to revise maths is just to practice as much as possible

    maths is mainly skills so practice questions are the best way to practice these methods

    I think the only thing that I found useful when revising maths was to just do a hell of a lot of past papers. Either download or print them off (they’re very easy to find online) and save the most recent papers for last as they will be the most similar to the real thing. Don’t be afraid to use ones from other exam boards either! And eventually start timing yourself so you can work on time management for the exam.

    Make sure you understand the concept (rather than just following steps) to the best of your ability, obviously there will be some things you just have to accept without understanding as it'll be way beyond the scope of what you're learning, but it's important to know why each step is done as this will help you to avoid careless mistakes and it will help for questions that seem quite tricky.

    Practise a lot and don't put off the hardest questions. There's little benefit from doing the same questions with different numbers over and over if you're getting all of them right.

    I got an A* in my math GCSE last year. Hands down THE best way to revise is doing timed practice papers! Just print off 10 of them and work through them all. Another top tip is to really get to know your calculator. There are tonnes of videos on youtube on how to do simultaneous equations and factorization on a calculator, which can save you from so many silly errors. The best investment you can make is buying the Casio fx-991ES Plus calculator. It will help so much with GCSE, and if you decide to do the A level.
