I am doing EdExcel Maths at GSCE this year, I’ve always struggled with maths since I can remember but I try to improve. I did my mocks and I got a grade 2 which isn’t a pass it’s like a G or something!
I don’t know how to improve I’m looking at tutors but does anyone know any resources to help revision/teaching myself the topics I already use Maths Watch and MyMaths (but I don’t really like MyMaths)

You need to do past papers/practice papers, or even old-spec papers. MathsWatch is good, but it's passive as you're not actually putting pen onto paper, and MyMaths questions aren't hard enough/in exam style.

Same thing happened when I did the reformed AS/A-Levels in 2015-2017. No past papers.

You just need to do a mixture of old-spec and new-spec past/specimen papers.

Why don't you search up specimen papers? Here's one:

(skip to page 7 for Foundation, and page 89 for Higher)

Hope I helped!
