P r a c t i c e. I kept getting 4s in December, year 11. Up to a 6 in March and then a 7 (nearly an 8!) in June and I now do A-level maths.
It was all practice papers. Find out what mistakes you’re making and correct them in every paper to fill in any knowledge gaps you may have and you will see improvements.

Yeah I feel you man, maths is a struggle. I think the best thing to do is to do past papers and then find where you're going wrong (i.e. the questions you're losing marks on) and for example if those questions are simultaneous equations, work on your maths around that specific area - you can do this by looking up youtube videos that help explain to you how to work out the question or ask a teacher. The really best thing to do is to do past papers and keep practising, especially for a subject such as maths.
Don't worry man, I'm really impressed at your attitude for a GCSE student and I'm sure with the right amount of work you'll be able to pull it off. Make sure you watch videos, look through textbooks and do past papers on stuff you're not confident on. Best of luck!

Literally the best way, maybe the only way, to improve in GCSE maths is to do a past paper, figure out what you did wrong, learn how to do it right, do another past paper, figure out what you did wrong in that, learn how to do it right, then do another past paper...
