More than possible. Go through all each unit once and skip on the ones you are confident on (maybe the ones on algebra, indices, surds, percentages). Do a few questions per unit to test yourself. Remember to make use of the formula sheet given. Between now and the exam, the best you can do is = a PPQ marathon. Do timed full papers and learn from the mark scheme. Good luck!

I literally did this!! I just grinded past paper questions on topics I was weak at. I was looking at a six, but after a few days I went up to a high 8. Now hoping for a 9! :smile: Physicsandmathstutor really helped me, you can find questions graded by topic on there to see what sorts of questions you need to do to get the grade you want. Good luck! I believe in you! :biggrin:

I'm not gonna sugercoat anything - it may be possible but you gotta be working non stop. Unless your at a high grade 6, a couple marks from a grade 7 - then alot of work will need to be done but its not impossible, just takes an immense amount of motivation and dedication

It is possible, you just need the dedication to work very hard on it for a week.

I would recommend identifying your weaknesses and then watching YouTube videos on the topics, then trying topic based questions on maths genie. And do a lot of past papers!

Which board?
If you need to cram the topics and you like listening to videos. I would recommend The GCSE Maths Tutor. Link here to his channel: https://www.youtube.com/@TheGCSEMathsTutor
