    i missed a large portion of year 11 due to having a baby. ive come back an missed out on so much work an maths has always been a struggle for me. i cant concentrate an all the numbers get me confused and angry. im working at a D level an no matter what i do i just cant seem to get that C i need. its getting me so upset and depressed. i cant spend as much time as everyone else on things as im being a mum at the same time but i have this pressure of letting everyone down. i really dont know how to revise maths. i dont know what i can do to make myself smarter. im just going to fail an i guess im just wanting someone to give me some advice, i dont have money or time for a tutor. my school is a bit useless. my boyfriend did A-level maths but is rubbish at explaining things. is there still a chance on me getting a c ?

    Watch YouTube videos on the topics you struggle with. They tell you what the topic is and then give exam questions. I hope you find them really helpful and help you get a c or higher

    Anxiety is the biggest obstacle of all when it comes to mathematics, so the most important thing you'll have to learn before any maths is how to relax when studying. You certainly won't be a failure or an idiot if you can't make the C in maths, but I can also assure you that with the right input I believe you could achieve it if you learn to tackle it with a level head, something many people struggle with when it comes to maths.

    As for the actual revision, I'd recommend the CGP books for a rough overview of each topic, with humour injected in to make it easier to digest. From there, I'd recommend identifying which bits you're stuck on most and tackle it, asking online when you hit an obstacle in your understanding. If there's anything you're particularly stuck on, I certainly wouldn't mind trying to explain it for you if you send me a message; sometimes maths takes multiple sources to grasp fully, in my experience.
