-Lean the equations by writing them on flashcards
-Corbett maths :
Their flashcards are really good and come with qr codes for worksheets & answers)
Do the 5-a-day questions each day
On the website they have videos, practice questions , textbook exercises and answers
-Past paper questions, print off past papers and fill them in in pencil so that you can rub it out and redo questions. Look at the mark schemes to see how marks are given
-Look for a checklist online ( they’re quite easy to find if you know what exam board and level ( foundation or higher))
- For challenging algebra that you need help with use photo maths as it’ll give you step by step what to do
-Primrose kitten! She’s made YouTube videos on the whole of GCSE maths
- CGP textbook and workbook

During your mock
-Keep an eye on the time
- The amount of marks each question is worth is roughly how long you should spend on it
- Make sure you read each question 2/3 times before answering to prevent silly mistakes
- If you don’t know what to do for a question put a * next to it and move on so that it’s easier to find the questions you haven’t answered yet
- Make sure you attempt all the questions, even if you don’t get the right answer you can pick up a lot of marks for your working out
- When using a calculator write down what you’re typing into the calculator incase of a typo or something
- Re-set your calculator just before the exam ( make sure you know how to do this for your specific calculator)
- Give yourself 5-10 at the end to recheck all your answers and workings, re type things into the calculator etc

I hope this has helped you , even thought I didn't actually take my GCSEs this year I was given an 8 and I believe all of this helped me... I’m now studying a level maths
