Hi. I am in year 13 and supposed to resit my GCSE maths exam in summer 2021. I stupidly didn't retake in summer 2020- i got a 5 and i need a 6 to do the degree i want to

I also do bio, chem and psych.

Does anybody have any advice on how i can balance this all arghhh

Go for the November exam so it does distract from your A level exams next Summer. Talk to your school about it asap and get revising. (As you have passed the GCSE you'll probably have to pay but your school should be able to help as it would be of benefit in getting a university place. If not then you could do it privately.)

As the poster above said go for a November resit if your school allows it. Went from a 4 to a 6 in a month. Very doable. From a 5 you should easily get a 6.

For Maths and English Language that's not the case. They are always available in the Autumn and are a separate exam season which anyone over 16 can enter for.

If your school are being difficult and you feel confident, you can always sign up to do the Cambridge International (CIE) iGCSE as a private candidate.

You'd have to pay, but you can get entered in for their October series of exams. They are challenging exams, but it's an option for you to consider.

You need to register soon if you decide to go for it.

I can only give advice for edexcel as this is the board I did. Use maths genies videos(to learn the content) and topic papers to make sure you can apply what you learnt. Go through every single topic+ topic questions above grade 2. Start even lower if you need to.Even if you think you know a topic still go through it. The content is only "challenging" at around grade 6-9 imo. Don't fear any topic as I did this the first time, the grade 4-7 topics will make up the majority of your paper.After you have finished all the content up to from grade 2-9 do past papers starting from around 2014/15. Try to aim for almost full marks on the first 10 questions on every paper which will be most of the marks you need for a 6. If you are getting 35-40 in every paper you are looking at a strong 6. 45-50 to be safe for a 7.
