    I did my exam today after failing GCSE Maths sooo many times and I'm wondering did any of you do it today?
    How did you find it??

    I personally found some of the questions difficult despite revising loads and doing past papers and revising from the book!

    Also if anyone has done GCSE and functional skills.. do you find it easier than GCSE?

    Yep me too! I was surprised about how difficult it was. I've been doing past papers independently and didn't find them as difficult as todays.

    Not well at all. I'm going to be checking out the paper again with my tutor to figure out where I've gone wrong. I'm certain I've failed 😢

    CGP do revision and practice workbooks that cover the maths you will need to do. You may find them in a local book shop or can get them from Amazon or any other online bookshop. Depending on how good your basics are, it may be necessary to get the level 1 and level 2 books. The CGP books are not specific to any particular examiner. If you are doing EDEXCEL functional skills exams it would be worth getting their books for level 1 and 2 as they feature similar questions to the real exams.
    You shouldn't have to pay for practice papers. Most of the examiners make past papers available for free on their web sites. If you are doing City & Guilds exams they have several free practice papers on their web site.
