Hey guys

Long-time lurker, first time poster 🙏

I'm doing Edexcel Maths as one of my A-levels and have been struggling I'm currently getting Cs in tests and I'm really worried I won't get good grades (I'm aiming for Mech Eng at Bath/Bristol)

I've tried using Youtube videos to really understand stuff but not had much luck 😭 (plus it takes ages...)

For those of you that struggled with Maths but managed to get good grades, what did you use? Should I look at UpLearn or Snaprevise/are they any good? I can't find many reviews for the Maths courses.

I totally agree with you on this one. My teacher use this website as well for lesson powerpoints and they are really good.
Go through the powerpoints and you willl grasp the skills you are sturggling with

Thanks Muttley79!

The slides look good but I still found some stuff hard to get by, e.g., the stuff on simultaneous equations is just a bunch of questions and revision notes rather than explanations :/

Hello!

I was in the exact position as you last year, I was a C at maths too and I didn't want to buy anything to help me with maths, because it's maths. You either can solve it or not, if that makes sense?

However, I stand wrong. I bought Tailored Tutors for maths and it's a life changer. The teacher is an Edexcel Examiner too!!! Her name is Ronnie, and every week she runs web classes (like e-learning) and she tells you where so many students drop easy marks. She's a pro at exam technique. Like you probably are, you know how to do maths, but you still somehow lose marks! It's so mind-boggling at how many quick checks and traps you can avoid with her. They are your teachers too, not just a weirdo in their pants doing maths vids. They really support you even when you are actually having a bad day too. One of the surprising things about tailored tutors was that they treat you like people, they do care about their students which meant quite a lot for me rather than some company taking your money for nothing. The video tutorials are so concise and good, at the end of every video they give you at least 3 types of exam questions (easy, medium and hard) to help with your learning too. These helped me so much!!! I'm actually looking to do a maths degree because Ronnie has inspired me too.
A lot of your posts seem to be talking about Tailored Tutors. I really want to believe that you found them great but it really looks like you're just working for them or being paid by them to post how great they are.

Go back to some GCSE sites for more detail ...
