    How have you done your maths revision notes etc?

    I'm dividing mine up into the priority for the high marks in the exam, so algebra followed by Ratio and geometry with the not so important coming up behind.

    I'm also revising these in that order, with a chart for each section of what I need to know, with a tick marker when I have bad, mediocre and good. Thus I can see what I really need to work on.

    I'm turning all the videos into flash cards to revise with as well as the official cards from various sources.

    I've done 3 foundation papers and 3 higher to get a base mark - I scored middle of the road, so need to work hard to get the 9 I want. I'm also doing Corbetts 5 a day for all sections. I'll being doing his exam type questions as well.


    PS I just need to put sticky index notes to subcategorise each section so I find it easily - oh and I'm working from the Corbett Higher revision list.

    Wow that’s really good !!!
    What I did was I made Flashcards for all the formulae I need to learn then I memorised all of them and then I went through my AQA CGP Revision guide and went through all the questions at the bottom of the book and then went through the topics I didn’t do so well on and it worked for me I recently got my mock exam results back and I got
    50/80 Equivalent to a Grade 8
    63/80 Equivalent to a grade 9
    66/80 Equivalent to a grade 9
    And overall I got an 8
    And in my mocks before this one I got
    35/80 Equivalent to a 6
    41/80 Equivalent to a 7
    40/80 Equivalent to a 7
    Overall I got a 6
    And I didn’t use the method I use now
