Im studying GCSE Maths from SCRATCH and would like a list of subjects to study as i dont have a clue where to start. Also i would like a suggestion of good revision books i could buy.

I am trying to achieve a pass grade and would like to do this having studied as little subjects as possible. (I know i should aim for a 9 to be safe)

i will be revising by myself and trying to do this in the military hence wanting as little subjects as possible that will achieve a pass.

I know i should aim for the higher gcse as the foundation paper is harsh on the marks. Also i have heared that the edexcel paper is better than AQA paper.

I just want to study some subjects then achieve a 4.

You could start by picking a gcse board (ie aqa) then buy a study guide for the subject. Then you can look into how much you can do, try previous exams, maybe consider a tutor if it’s tough.

Just maths has worksheets for almost every topic, sorted into foundation and higher.
https://justmaths.co.uk/2015/11/29/9...ion-version-2/

I would start by focusing on foundation paper stuff, and maybe move onto higher papers when you can get at least 60%.
I would start by doing a past paper so you have an idea of where you are at.

Primrose kitten has YouTube videos on every GCSE topic, you could start by taking notes on these if that helps you.

Corbett Maths (linked above) is a great resource for gcse maths, with videos and questions for each topic.
This is a checklist for AQA higher, however if you just search whatever exam board gcse maths checklist, you should find the one you want, - make sure to specify higher or foundation.

You will need to think about where you will sit your exams. Is there an exam centre or school near you? When they’re open again you will need to enquire whether you can sit your exams there. Do you want to do them in the summer, or for the November series? All things to think about

Thanks for the advice all!!!

i have bought 2 edexcel maths revision books. 1 foundation revision and the other higher revision.

I will take a look at just maths and primrose kitten.

Also i WILL try to achieve 60% competency in foundation before attempting higher.

Thanks

I will check out corbett maths.

Also i have contacted a sixth form college and they said i can sit a AQA paper in November.

But i wont do this i will need to keep studying and then sit the exam in the future. I will have a better chance 100% by doing this.

Have you talked to anyone at your RAF learning centre? They may well have advice and be able to help you find an exam centre (and possibly even tuition). (I know the Navy used to provide GCSE maths courses for Naval personnel.and had it's own registered exam centres. No idea if it still does or if the RAF has something similar.)
