    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?

    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.
