    So as the title states, in my interview today I got accepted into the sixth form, but the subjects, all three, were denied. All because my maths is trash. So, my question is, does anyone have any tips for understanding maths, i am predicted a 5 and I need a 6, so im not that far, but any tips will be appreciated.

    Practise

    For me in tests I do at school it isn't knowing the maths, but applying it.

    Do a past paper, and go over any topics you struggle with in it.

    Learn all your formulas and do every past paper and if you want topic specific papers just type them into google. There's a website that's called something along the lines of Piximaths (I think) and they have papers varying in difficulty that they've made.

    I recommend doing your past papers under exam conditions but with extra questions/papers (especially if they're hard) take as long as you want and just get through them. Things you really don't understand, make sure you go through with your teacher and take to a maths support club (If your school has one)

    I was predicted a grade 4 with my grade from mocks being a 3 and managed to get a 6! (Just work hard and once you've done all your maths papers just forget about them till results day. Don't get hung up on them or anything because most people I know ended up getting a much better grade then they expected)
