I always found maths the easiest to revise in school.

Im a big believer in the key in understanding the concepts and not just memorisation.

I think the best way to learn is to focus on the core concept in the syllabus and work through the theory of the problems algebraically. So you can understand why you’re doing the steps involved in solving the problem.

Once you have understand the logic, practice practice practice. Past papers, other problems, whatever you can get your hands on.

I just did every past paper, practice paper and practice question that I could get my hands on - physicsandmathstutor.com is a good site for maths practice and any practice questions in your textbooks.

My exam board was Edexcel and what I did was buy the CGP revision guide, go through that and my notes that I made in class on a topic, then use DrFrost to answer past paper questions on that topic. For math the key is past paper questions because the process is nearly always the same, the wording is just different for different papers

Past papers are the way to go, search up your exam board and you’ll see 2018 exams and below. Try mymaths, physicsandmaghstutor.com and hegarty maths for questions (Ik a few more but I cant remember).
For maths it’s about practice so make sure if you don’t understand go through every step and repeat it, don’t tell yourself ‘you get it’ just for the sake of it (not saying that you do), anything you have trouble with go over.
If you can’t find mark schemes online for certain questions you can use mymaths to check if your working outs are correct (they solve most questions, not fully worded ones but if you had a section of a larger question asking you to factorise you could check if yoy got the factorisation right etc)

I did edexcel and I was given a big textbook by my maths teacher but I also bought cpg guide which is very helpful. Make flashcardsfor equations and rules and theorems too!

maths is basically the same for every exam board, so don't hesitate to use diff papers from diff boards

Just do as many past paper questions as you can - it's not like the other subjects..there's only so much they can ask you! Just wondering which year you're in?
