Hey! I'm currently in year 11 and really struggling with maths, I'm currently on a D/C grade and i want to get a 6 (B in old grade) in my real exam but i just can't figure out a way to revise! Does anyone happen to have any tips on the best ways to revise for maths that will actually work?

Have you tried looking into buying revision material? Last year I used CGP Maths Buster which you install onto your computer. You can watch tutorials and do practice questions while it tracks your progress. I can’t remember how much it cost but I know buying it through the school was cheaper. CGP does loads of revision material (revision guides and workbooks) which I found useful.

Other than that all I can advise is doing past paper after past paper. Get them marked and most importantly do corrections!! I often did my corrections in a separate maths book and wrote down the steps to completing the questions. This meant I had my own note book I could refer back to whenever I got stuck on a similar question.

I've found posters are a good way to revise for maths. Might not work for you but worth a try.

CGP Maths Buster was a huge help for key points that are concise and clear, providing questions too.

But what I thoroughly recommend is Hegarty Maths. This is one of the best websites for maths around and Mr Hegarty has been classed “the worlds best teacher”, which of course is arguable.

He provides videos of lessons on how to go through different maths topics and then you are set questions to answer. It’s honestly amazing and I highly recommend it.

Make sure to also do lots of past papers!

Good luck

Same problem here:

Corbett maths as a list of videos to watch for both Higher and Foundation.

Primrose kitten (You Tube) does a GCSE Maths in 2 hours video, as well as a free download tick list of everything to cover.

Past papers yep, Corbett also does a 5 a day test for each Foundation, Foundation plus, Higher and Higher plus.
