We've finished the maths content at my school, but we've rushed a lot of it and there are many topics that i'm unfamiliar with.
My school had subscriptions to HegartyMaths and DrFrost, but i've heard a lot about corbett maths and Maths genie.
i'm currently workin at a 5 and i want to move up to a 7 or above because i want to do A level maths.
What sites would you recommend for practice questions and learning? and what would you recommend to move up to a grade 7?

The two you have subscriptions for are very good.

You can access a lot of Dr Frost materials free

That isn't free - do you have permission to advertise it?

How is self teaching A level maths going for you as I am in the process of deciding whether to self teach or go to sixth form

For AS, the content isn't very challenging, the a level books and a couple of YouTube channels are honestly enough. AS is a breeze if im being honest, coming from someone who only got a 6 at gcse maths. The second year stuff is hard so far, as you'd expect, so I can't really comment on the difficulty overall. I could have sat A level maths at a sixth form/college but the only reason why I didn't is becasue I didn't want to waste another 2 years, (I would have been 18 when I started), so I opted to just teach myself the A level, and so far its very manageable tbh. Personally, if I was just coming out of gcse, I would just go to sixth form, because you have the help of teachers and you don't have to pay for exams.

Hello, how are you getting on now? How long did it take you to learn the GCSE content and A-level content?
