I'm taking maths as a private candidate, to revise for the exams I have the textbooks I've been learning off and I'm also planning on doing all the past papers from my board but it somehow feels like its not enough!

I do not have teachers or tutors to help me with subjects I find tricky.
What else can I do?

im a private candidate too.
I've got books, printed revision sheets and booklets.
I've also watched the whole module teached by jack brown on YouTube. I also recommend hegarty maths and exams solutions on YouTube too.
maths and physics tutor is good for printables.
the further maths program has revision videos too.

another thing I do is to complete a past paper (downloaded to my tablet, I use an app to write on the pdf), then on my laptop I split screen the answers and the examiners report.
as I'm marking the paper, I read the notes for that question and see where previous candidates lost marks so I can avoid those pitfalls.
