    in my mock exams i got a grade 5 in the foundation paper and was told i could do higher if i like. i obviously took the opportunity however i must teach all the content to myself. i am struggling as i go over somethings and forget quickly. i have used maths watch, bought the maths workbook and revision guide but they are not very clear....was wondering if anyone knew how i cud catch up on all the content before march--- my mocks are in march and if i get a 5 i am able to do higher for my real gcse exams

    What are you struggling the most with right now? Can't really say how to catch up since I've been doing higher since the start but I can try to help you understand the topics you're struggling with. Granted that I'm not that great at maths myself, only working at around 6/7.

    I'll try to give advise but I don't know how good it'll be... we've been given HegartyMaths to use to revise for the year so that's all I've really been using but do some higher past papers and see how you fair against it. Not exactly sure on the details but supposedly the ending questions on the foundation paper is like the start-middle of the higher one. As long as you can wrap your head around the concepts it shouldn't be too difficult.

    wow grade 6/7 is really good. well done x. i have been doing past papers and got 30-35 on each paper. i checked the grade boundaries and its was a grade 5. however im always getting the end questions wrong completely even though i have been over them and i feel soo bored during them because i feel like i am just guessing. is hegarty maths similar to mathswatch?

    Sorry for the late reply... I haven't used TSR for a while. I'm not sure if it's like Mathswatch since I've never used it. I've only ever used MyMaths and Hegarty Maths. I also struggle with the end questions so I can't really help you tbh. The only thing I can suggest is keep practicing... though you're already doing that so I don't know.
