Hi,

I've just finished with my maths and further maths a levels so will hopefully be able to help!

- Primrose Kitten does some overall content videos that could help if you just need a refresher
- If it feels a bit overwhelming covering all the content or you're not sure where to start, if you've got a revision guide go through each of the topics and chapters and rate them as red,amber or green - then when you want to start your work you know which topics to prioritise
- If you have made flashcards already, look through those over the next few days (I know it's a hassle but will really help!)
- If not, maybe this evening/tomorrow morning make some speedy flashcards on formulae etc which will help - they don't need to be neat!
- Once you've sorted out what topics you need to look through and made any resources you feel would be good (ie. mindmaps to stick up or post its to go on your bathroom mirror - I wouldn't spend more time than you need on this as the next bit is the most important!)
- Find all the past exam qs that you can - try doing some individual questions and some papers, try to time the papers as it'll really help when you sit your paper
- Have a look at CorbettMaths 5 a day - this really helped me at GCSE as you can decide what level to work at

Best of luck for the next few days, you'll smash it!

Sorry, I just saw this. Hopefully it’s still helpful!

For maths I did the AQA Specification. Lots of people revise for Maths in very different ways, and that is perfectly fine as long as you are understanding the concepts. Most people like to do Exam Questions and then practice, practice and practice, whereas others like to make notes. I personally, found that doing Exam Questions was the best way to revise as I could answer questions, and then check solutions and mark schemes to see where I went wrong and what alternative methods could be used. Most questions in Maths are recycled from past papers, and just have different numbers. But these questions are also recycled from the 2000-2014 papers, so I would recommend practicing these as well as the new 9-1 Papers. But, don’t just rely on Past papers from your exam board, my school used AQA but I practised Edexcel and OCR papers too, this is good practice because you can go through a wider range of questions. Here are some more detailed resources and websites:

https://www.mathsgenie.co.uk – You can use this to access a wide range of Exam papers, and then after you’ve completed the paper you can watch walkthroughs so you can see how to do all the questions. They also have Exam Questions for each topic, I thought this was really helpful because after you’ve covered a topic in class you can do the topic exam questions to see if you understand the topic and this will show you what you need to focus on. The topics are also split by grades, so if you’re aiming for a 9 do all the questions.

https://corbettmaths.com – AMAZING! They make their own Exam papers so you can practice these too. They have a wide range of Worksheets, videos and Topic exam questions which will help you get a better insight into your understanding of different units. I would really recommend doing the 5-a-day. They have one sheet of questions for each day and these sheets have a range of different questions so you can keep testing your skills on different questions. The sheets are split by level, if you’re definitely doing Foundation for the real exams stick to the Foundation sheets, if you’re currently doing foundation but want to do higher, try the Foundation plus sheets, if you’re doing Higher and aiming for a 6/7 do the Higher sheets, and if you’re aiming for an 8/9 do the Higher plus sheets.

https://www.piximaths.co.uk/revision-booklets - These booklets are split by grades, so you can practice Exam questions suited to the level you’re aiming for.
