Im in year 11 making a futile attempt to pass my GCSE's. However, I am the stupidest person to ever walk the earth! I can't do maths at all. Numbers just don't make sense. They all jumble up and make me confused and i can't retain anything i am taught. It's so frustrating because i try so hard.

My twin sister on the other hand is amazing at everything she does and doesn't even try. She got a 9 (A**) in the last set of maths mock exams.

I just can't help feeling like I drew the short straw somehow. Please can someone rescue me from the sham they call life!

Make sure you revise properly. Buy the books, watch videos (mathswatch) etc.

Here are things to help:


I recommend doing this order:- mathsgenie worksheets- mathsmadeeasy worksheets- justmaths worksheets- CGP workbook (from school)- once you finished ALL the worksheets in ALL three sites move onto the papers:- AQA papers- Edexcel papersWorksheets (for all topics with answers):https://www.mathsgenie.co.uk/gcse.htmlhttps://mathsmadeeasy.co.uk/gcse-maths-revision/https://justmaths.co.uk/2015/12/21/9...c-higher-tier/Your CGP workbook!PAST PAPERS:AQA papers: https://mathsmadeeasy.co.uk/gcse-mat...a-past-papers/Edexcel papers: https://mathsmadeeasy.co.uk/gcse-mat...l-past-papers/

Step one is to stop comparing yourself with others - this is something I always do and it always puts me down.

Maths was frustrating for me, I got a 6 (B) last year and I didn't understand anything. Just keep trying hard and you'll slowly improve. If you're finding it hard to improve then maybe ask a teacher for guidance, or I think someone on here will be happy to help (I'm not really in a position to provide maths advice).

I didn't revise for my GCSEs and I regret this wholeheartedly.. just keep trying and you can't go wrong.

There's always someone better than you in this world, just accept it and come to terms with it.

Like i was in the same position as you last year (part of 1st batch of students doing the new 9-1 maths). My friends were getting 7 and 9s and here i was getting 5s.

When it comes to math what you require is practice - and a sh*t tonne of it for you to be able to remember all them equations well.
