    Hi! Do every past paper you can, I also did my gcse maths early (in year 9) and I was doing past papers from 1997, I was also doing national 5s, sec 4 (Singaporean gcses essentially) etc.
    Practice practice practice and you'll get an A* (or a 9)

    How come you're taking a gap year though. Are you moving abroad and coming back to england?

    Well yes, I am. But it's not about whether or not I would do it: this is a case of can I physically enter myself or not?

    You can enter yourself as a private candidate! You'll probably pay about £60 if you're applying to sit the exam in 2019 now.

    No. I wanted to do this too (I'm taking old Maths and FM) but unless you're resitting, you can never do it (it's not available next year or in the new spec).

    There isn't any. Unless you want to learn another 6 modules now.

    Good advice though I'm confused; you said you've done your GCSE early yet on your goals document you said you're aiming for a 9 and are doing FM GCSE? Then you haven't done it early...?

    I sat statistics! It is my maths gcse (based on the attainment 8) my first mathematics score counts! I'm not sure but my examination officer warned me that if I failed this exam in year 9, my others etc.
