    So I'm studying for 8 GCSEs and all 7 are good except for one.


    Not my best subject and is definitely the subject that holds hate since I was born.

    Never the less I am still on a good track to completing it and dumping it in 4 months.

    However I am having trouble going through the revision as easy as all the others hence why I hate revising for it.

    It's just such a chore..

    Any suggestions fellow pupils?

    Much appreciated. Thanks

    Makes sure you have no distractions when revising for it. Also, I think the only way to improve in maths is practice. So do a lot of practice questions and exam papers.

    Have set goals for each session, for example one session could focus on trigonometry. Make sure you focus intensely for this session and get as much done and afterwards reward yourself with something that you enjoy. Think of the benefits of getting a good grade in maths, try and do maths first to get it out of they way.

    Try and intersperse it with subjects you like . It's actually been found that you learn and remember much better if you find the subject engaging. So for maths, you should do a small chunk of it between 2 subjects you find engaging and your brain should still be in a good place to learn.
    Have you also tried varying how you revise it? Maths is a subject which you benefit hugely from practising, but you can do this in a lot of ways. Don't just use textbooks for qus, but use online quizzing sites also and you may find it a bit more fun!
