    Pay attention and work hard in your normal Maths lessons.
    Buy the CGP guides and work from them https://www.cgpbooks.co.uk/Student/b..._further_maths
    Practise all the past papers.

    Do you mean revise? Have you finished learning the material yet?

    For revising, as well as revising the topics you should try all the past papers as well as the practice papers - most can be found online.

    Okay so you will need a proper textbook to learn the material. There are two main ones but I recommend this one:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/AQA-Certifi...=further+maths

    This is the other main one which isn't as good:

    Thank you too much also do you know if this Further Maths would be considered as IGCSE or just GCSE because on AQA it says IGCSE style qualification.

    Does it matter? The 2 are equivalent. It is formally a Level 2 certificate (and also equivalent to a GCSE or IGCSE.)

    Get the CGP book and focus on areas that aren't on the normal gcses (e.g differentiation, matrices etc). Then I'd do one of the sets of past papers and see what you struggle with. It's pretty easy to get a high grade in further maths as the grade boundaries are ridiculously low.

    Note that the CGP book is a revision guide so should only be used once you've learnt all of the material with a proper textbook and done lots of questions.
