    Im in year 10 and right now my grades are very low in maths and Im thinking that the higher paper might not be the best option for me . Can anyone help me with how I should be revising/studying to get my grades back up ? or , does anyone have advice about whether I should be taking the foundation or higher paper?

    higher if you pass you get a 5, foundation you have to do really well to get a 5. I like using bitesize which explain it then give you mini tests. Also do practice questions, half of maths is spotting what you have to do then knowing how to. PM me if you need help!

    I have completed GCSE maths; currently doing A level maths; and I found the best way to revise maths was to do lots.. and lots of practice papers. They don't even have to be for your new specification (which I did). But each time you get an answer wrong and you understand why you got it; you will apply that understanding to a different question of the same topic and hopefully get it correct next time. Good luck!
