Maths revision GCSE

Can anyone give me any advice to revise for GCSE maths literally anything? Bc idk what happened but I got moved down bc I had a 6,5,6 in all my papers for my first mock and now I got a 3,4,4. I’ve been consistent revising and doing questions but there’s some questions I can’t find like a shadow paper/question for it.
Most of my lessons I have substitutes and we barely do anything, i rlly just want a grade 5 for ENG, MATHS, and SCIENCE to get 5 grades like im actually desperate! This is all my mock:
English lang:4
English Lit:5
Maths:3/4
Combined science: 4:3
History:3
Art:4/5
Spanish:2
Physics and maths tutor really helps for topic specific questions. Also go through and only do the questions that you find hard to avoid wasting time this close to the exams. P&M also has summary notes for most topics if those help. Whenever you go exam questions make sure to use the mark scheme to check you answers - do not just leave them. Hope this helps.

i would really recommend watching those maths edits on tiktok or insta reels, they really do help. i got like 53% in my gcse maths mock, but ended up getting an a*/9 in both gcse maths and gcse further maths. it helps to know where things come from and use more than one topic that youve learnt to solve a problem

Hi there,

I found mathsgenie super helpful when I was revising. All the topics are there for you under the grade that they are, which makes planning revision easier.

I think with maths, specifically, it's important to practise past papers but not to the point where you start to get brain fog. Everyone is human and needs downtime, if you feel you're doing too much, take a break and come back to it. The best maths gets done when your mind is quiet and focused!

There's also corbettmaths, if you wanted to look at different resources. Little and often does wonders.
