Any tips or advice on how I can go from a grade 5/6 to a grade 9 in around a month or so ready for my mock exams?

Thank you

A lot of hard work haha (probably not the answer you want to hear for a quick fix).

Timed practice papers and working through textbook questions, particularly the topics that you struggle the most with, until it becomes second nature is the best way forward.

You can find past papers online if you search for them on your exam board's website and there are plenty of study books you can buy to help you revise.

Put in a little work every day, even if it's just 15-20 minutes of maths work on top of your homework.

Good luck with your mocks!

You should get the grade 9 targeted CGP book on amazon or eBay and it has loads of Grade7-9 practice questions

I went from a 5/6 at the beginning of year 11 to coming out with an 8 at the end of the year (granted I had to get a remark to go from a 7 to an 8). I bought myself a whiteboard, stuck it on my wall in my room, and used various maths websites (like onmaths.com) to help me.

Start doing all the past papers. Don't forget to check the answer schemes. You learn a lot from your mistakes.

When I did my GCSE mocks I got a grade 3 in English Literature so, I was thought I was screwed for the actual GCSE however, I watched loads of videos and made notes from them and this helped me a lot. I managed to get a grade 9 in my actual GCSE English Literature so, my tip is not to give up but to use any resources you can find.
