Does anyone know any tips for revising GCSE higher maths? Or any websites that help to explain stuff and practise questions?
I got a 5 in my mock but I'm really hoping to get a 6 in the real thing (a 7 would be ideal), I just haven't found an effective way to revise for it yet :/

Try Mathsgenie which separates the topics by grade. Also, I made this revision checklist with links to questions which might be useful for you.

Make sure you do as many past/practice exam papers as you can and consider buying the CGP practice papers and exam question workbook.

Completely agree about the www.mathsgenie.co.uk website use. I am a professional Maths tutor and use it with my students. Also has some very useful videos explaining every topic and past papers etc.

Good luck with your exam.

Seneca learning is quite good I think. I do edexcel maths, but it might be different for you if you're a different board.

Practice papers, practice papers, practice papers. You'll be so sick of seeing the same questions over and over again, and that's a good thing. It means that you'll be ready for every type of question that will be able to come up in the actual exam. There are no shortcuts for revision, especially with Maths, where you can't just remember facts, you have to be able to apply your knowledge and be flexible.
