I am at a grade 2 for GCSEs maths I have about 2 months and 3 weeks left till exams is it possible to get a grade 5 if I learn all the topic do past papers exam style questions
Yes, it is very possible; I would advise that you do many past papers in exam conditions and check your answers afterwards; that will give you a good idea of which topics you struggle with, and you can look them up on the many GCSE maths websites out there, I would recommend https://www.mathsgenie.co.uk/

any other questions, feel free to ask.

Hi thank you. Is there any particular method I am suppose to use when revising for maths. I get the maths like what I have to work out but like it’s what I’m working out like what numbers I’m suppose to add or divide.

There is time to make significant improvement before the exams and at least reach a grade 4 pass and maybe even a grade 5.

The Mathsgenie web site and The GCSE Maths Tutor on YouTube are excellent places for maths revision and practice. Practice of exam style questions will help improve your maths grade. Start with the easier grade 3 topics and work your way up. Corbett maths 5 a day is a nice way of doing a little bit of maths practice every day to build up skill and confidence, start with foundation and move up to foundation plus as you improve.

If you set up a free account on the Dr Frost Web site you can do past papers online that are marked for you and you can see where you need to do some revision.

You don't have endless time but If you want to follow a programme to build up your skill https://www.missbsresources.com/teaching-and-learning/mathspassports is a well structured way to do it.

People who are working at grade 2 tend to have missed out on many fundamental aspects of mathematics knowledge and problem solving ability so they often find it hard to make progress solely by independent learning. I assume you are still in school and so I would say it is absolutely vital to make the most of the advice and help your teacher can give you in lessons and if there are any after school sessions or holiday interventions, attend them.

Go on physics and maths tutor and go on the GCSE maths page, try questions from each topic. If you see that you do not understand the topic then go on 'Bicen Maths GCSE' and watch every video from that topic. When you feel like you know at least 80% of the topics start doing past papers. Just rinse and repeat this, but as others have said you most likely don't understand the fundamentals like fractions, percentages, ratio, shapes. So if you feel like you don't understand those topics go on that youtube channel and watch those topics.
