Hey. Some online sources that really helped me were Seneca and Khan Academy. Seneca explains and gives quickfire questions to help your understanding. Khan Academy does videos and walk throughs and sometimes has questions too. IXL is also really good, but you have to pay to access all of it.

You can also PM me if you need help. I got a 7 at GCSE and am currently doing maths at A level. I've helped a couple of people on here before, so I'd be happy to kind of "tutor" you.

Not sure if this is any help, but good luck!!

Why do you want a 7 though? Is there any real reason?

Unless you plan on doing a degree in something like Maths/Engineering or Economics then doing Foundation level (which you find very easy) and getting a 5 would seem better than possibly failing a Higher paper

Some sixth forms require 7s so that you can do your A levels. Mine did

That is not the case for most sixth forms or at least only in the subjects people want to continue to A level. OP has not said they need a 7 in maths in order to do A levels.

Do you understand it when you go through it with videos and teachers? Maybe with a tutor as others have suggested or just going straight back to the basics with each topic making sure you’re confident on each bit before you progress
