Brief run down, I've been at college for a year and have decided to drop two of my subjects to take up maths and biology (career change).

I've been out of maths for a year and I recieved an A at GCSE, what resources should I use to get my head back into maths and get ahead? (I have thrown away all my notes as well)

Past papers are probably the best thing to use once you've learned the content and the process of how to solve questions. Do you know which exam board you're doing as you could look at the specification for that exam board?

I don't know what exam board your doing for maths but focus on getting up to AS standard in calculus (integration and differentiation) and look at the statistics and mechanics stuff you don't recognise from maths and physics GCSE. Physics and Maths Tutor is a good place to go for exam questions.

Thank you, I've found out the board and have downloaded the spec and will attempt at going through it.

Hi just wanted to update people, but I'm loving it now! We have an initial test which I scored higher than most other students and I just love it.

Thank you for people's help and reassurance!
