You need to revise all topics.
Do lots of past papers and mark them.

Revise everything on the spec and try out different techniques to find the best one for you.

Before we get started, I will provide sources mainly for regular Maths due to the new problem solving and weird syllabus - the FM is still the old hence for that I'd just go through the book, do the CGP workbook and bang out past papers.

Here are links:


I recommend doing this order:
- mathsgenie worksheets
- mathsmadeeasy worksheets
- justmaths worksheets
- once you finished ALL the worksheets in ALL three sites move onto the papers
- AQA papers
- Edexcel papers
- OCR papers
- specimen papers
- CrashMaths papers
- Churchill papers
- practice set papers and mocks from school

Worksheets (for all topics with answers):

https://www.mathsgenie.co.uk/gcse.html

https://mathsmadeeasy.co.uk/gcse-maths-revision/

https://justmaths.co.uk/2015/12/21/9...c-higher-tier/

Your CGP workbook + CGP grade 9 workbook (buy them if you don't have them by now)

PAST PAPERS:
AQA papers: https://mathsmadeeasy.co.uk/gcse-mat...a-past-papers/
Edexcel papers: https://mathsmadeeasy.co.uk/gcse-mat...l-past-papers/
OCR papers: https://mathsmadeeasy.co.uk/gcse-mat...r-past-papers/

The CrashMaths, Churchill and specimen papers can be found online. Mock papers + practice sets can be requested from your teacher.

A few things I'll add to your excellent list:

The CGP practice papers are really good and so are the MathsBuster papers and Edexcel practice papers. I'd recommend all of these above the crashMATHS and Churchill papers.

(these are links for Edexcel but there are similar papers for AQA).

Well for a 9 (and to achieve a particuarly great mark), I'd just doing everything you can find. All past papers (for old spec from the 3 main awarding bodies), specimen papers from the 3 main boards and crashmaths/practice/churchill/mathsbuster, etc.

At some point you could make a thread that lists all the free and buyable practice papers for 9-1 maths (with links). This would be really useful for GCSE students aiming for 7-9 - most aren't aware that so many papers are available.

Of course it's completely up to you if you want to do this!

Would love to! I was thinking of something something like that anyways. Perhaps doing it now would be better and have it stickied? So that students can start working now in time for mocks, etc.

Also, I was thinking one for A level Maths too. I found a lot of (non-syllabus) resources that are greatly helpful. A lot of students miss these as they aren't titled "A level Maths". Professor Leonard on YouTube is the best resource to learn all the Calculus in Maths/FM for instance, examsolutions for other stuff, problem worksheets for more difficult integrals/differentiation, etc. I was thinking of writing a routine kinda thing for Maths too e.g. watch the videos and lectures, complete the textbook exercises, try the problem worksheets, etc. with links to Solomon, IYGB, physicsandmathstutor, examsolutions, textbooks, etc?

These sound like great ideas!

If you ever make a thread like this then it's probably worth letting the Support Team know e.g. Lemur14 so that they are aware of it.

These are great ideas It's actually been on my list of things to do to make a list of off site resources and post it so we can link it when users ask what resources they should use. If you do create it then please do tag me in and we can add it to things like the maths thread index etc. :woo:

Yeah I will do - I think it'll help a lot of students for their Maths journeys through GCSE/A level. After I'm done revising for my own stuff, I'll create it ASAP and tag you in.
