I currently get like 5s in my mocks, however I need to get a 6 in my exam.
I just find it so hard to take any of it in. I have a tutor and she has helped but I’m so worried I won’t get the grade i need.

My dad said he would give me £1000 if I got a 9, but that’s not going to happen ahah.

Any unique revision tips, not the usual flash cards, Mindmaps, papers, Seneca etc?

Just really need help.

I am literally in the same position as you! I am also getting 5s in maths and desperately want at least a 6 or 7. What I'm finding really helpful is doing the topic tests from Maths Genie and they have loads and loads of practice questions to help you improve your grade. Maths is ultimately all about practice, so just do as many past papers as possible and learn from your mistakes so that you can eliminate your weaknesses. Good luck!

Hey, I have a few tips if it helps. There are a few good websites I use for maths.
https://www.drfrostmaths.com/index.php
- This site breaks down topics and subtopics so if you are finding anything in particular hard then you can find really good questions on here

https://mathsbot.com/
- Mathsbot has plenty of different helpful things for maths. It also randomly generates exam-style questions and maths paper

Pixie Maths is also good with it giving you workbooks according to the grade you want to achieve

https://www.mathsgenie.co.uk/papers.html
- Has all papers up till 2017 and has exam style questions for every topic you need

Also, a good technique is doing a paper and then working out where you've don't understand a certain question and then either learning the topic or doing questions on it (depending on your level of understanding). For me doing paper after paper is the best way to revise maths and then revising the small topics that I don't understand. Or doing a few questions a day also helps to keep yourself in maths mode. Hope this helps!
