Considering paying for Save My Exams because I've heard lots of good things, but not sure whether it's actually worth it. Can anyone who's used it tell me how they found it?

Interested in GCSE Maths in particular.

For maths try https://www.mathsgenie.co.uk. It has videos for every topic arranged by grade and then exam questions of that topic with the answers.

Eh.

None of those paid for exam help services is worth it, to be honest. Especially when there are so many fantastic free internet resources out there already.

I got along just fine with my GCSEs/A-Levels without paying a dime for things like that.

What do they offer when you pay?
They offer exam questions for free, do you just get the mark schemes or is there something else on top of that?

And for maths I reckon there is no need for that as there are many other good resources, I do Edexcel science but there are not that many resources, which is why I find SaveMyExams useful (the free question papers)

You do not need to buy any special subscriptions in order to do well in your GCSEs! There are plenty of past-paper and specimen questions - ask your teachers where you can find them. Or you can even write your own questions, then start answering the ones you wrote a few weeks ago.

There's a lot of free stuff out there, but I found it hard to know what was actually legit and useful and what wasn't. Found Save My Exams handy because all of the resources were relevant and in one place, and the mark schemes in particular were good. Would recommend paying if you can afford it - it's really not that expensive for a year in comparison to tutors etc.

I don't use it for maths (lol, probably should) but do my science stuff on it - find it really helpful as you can just practice the topics you find most hard which for me has been really helpful

Another good pay-for resource is http://my-gcsescience.com. You can pay for each individual science or dual science. It has videos of each topic, along with sheets to print out on which to make notes from the video ( so it might have the bare bones of the powerpoint seen in the video which you than add the info too). This is followed by exam questions for each topic and the answers

It depends on whether you're doing GCSEs or A-levels. For GCSE, there are plenty of exam papers on the exam board websites (especially on CIE and AQA), although less now with the changes. For A-level (I have just started year 12), I've found it much harder to find exam questions and save my exams actually sorts them by topic (I think they do for GCSE too) which is really helpful. You can use their papers without paying but you can't access the mark schemes so its pretty much useless without paying. So for me, I've found it really worth paying but I guess it depends on which exams and also which subjects (they offer the 3 sciences and maths which are also the subjects I am doing so it gives me more value for money than it would for people not taking all of those subjects).

tbh , for 5$ a month, it's quite worth it. It's been really useful. I just started year 12 in 2017 and for physics and maths it really helps organise the different topic tests that I have been receiving.

Yeah they take PayPal and they actually have a three month option now which is cheaper I think. I ended up getting it and find it helpful

Well you don't need to pay the subscribtion for Save My Exams because if you research a little bit sometimes you can find websites with free Save my exams past paper such as this one--> https://savemyexams.blogspot.com/The set up is quite nice but the only problem is they only have CIE (They do say they will add others but it has been a couple of months)
