    Use ''physicsandmathstutor.com''. The more papers you do the better you become. However if you are not sure where the answers come from, then it should have step by step explanations for you.
    Isn't that only for A level?

    For GCSE just go through the whole textbook and do 10 pastpapers from your exam board which should improve your grades-also my maths is good for some questions

    It has some papers for GCSE but these will just be the specimen papers. Try to avoid past papers for the old (easier) specification.

    When i did mocks at GCSE i kept getting 4s in maths and i was completely hopeless, I revised as much as i could (not much lmao) but ended up coming out with a 6. Currentlt doing chemistry so it worked out. Chances are grade boundaries will be low like they were for me and youll get a 6 or 7... good luck though👍🏻

    They're mainly exam style questions so many will be hard. If you're not confident with a topic then a revision guide may be better.

    It should have some past papers that you could use. However, it also has a revision section. Right now though you can't click on them, meaning that they are probably in the process of being updated, so use the revision guide for that. But do keep an eye out for any updates.

    Good Luck,

    So I currently have mocks, and I just had my 2nd maths paper today. It didn’t go so well and then I see everyone come out of the exam, saying it was easy. I want to at least get a 6 but right now I feel as if I achieved a 5. I also revised so hard for maths, more than English, science and all my other subjects I’ve done so far. As of now, I am using mathswatch to revise but I feel as if the questions aren’t difficult enough because in the exam, it’s ten times harder. Is it worth getting a revision guide or should I use things like maths genie and on maths etc. It’s important I get a 6 in maths as I need a 6 in maths to study biology and chemistry at A level.
    Ask your teacher to give you practice papers. do maybe 1 a week and with any that you struggle on, ask your teacher or ask on here

    1) go through the topics

    3) then put away revision guides and keep doing past papers?

    Pretty much, but you shouldn't even have to use revision guides when practicing normally apart from when you've revised or learnt it.
