    You can "pass" EDEXCEL gcse higher tier maths getting much less than 20% of the questions right.
    It doesn't matter if some topics or types of questions are a struggle for you. Keep revising, you may not get a grade 9 but you will be able to get enough marks for a pass.

    Thinking you will fail will block your mind and will not help you anyway. The good thing about maths is that for every problem it will present you with there will be a solution!
    When you have a difficult problem in front of you, line up what you have been given and check where it leads. Take one step at a time and every step will take you closer. If a problem is given in words try to convert it to an algerbraic sentence, it will make it easier to solve. There is a very long list of topics to cover, I suggest putting in front of you, crossing out what you know and working on what you don't using a worked example plus 1 extra. If you get it right move on, if you get it wrong, mark it and come back to it. Make you sure you write all of your working out on the exam paper will gurantee a few points even if you don't arrive to the solution.

    If you are feeling stressed by the quantity of questions, then I would say that don't focus on completing them all; you are more likely to make mistakes. Start with the easier questions and bank those marks before moving on to the more challenging questions. It'a always a good idea to always write down formulae and always show you working as you can pick up method marks even if your answer is wrong.
