    Not much you can do but get a GCSE book and give it a read. People crash courses all the time in the Scottish system, I'm sure you'll survive. Make sure your teachers know about it, mind.

    Anyway, just try getting some gcse revision guides (preferably CGP) and start from there. Or maybe you could try BBC Bitesize?

    That's the worst breaking news ever. & you're rep isn't worth anything :p:

    But yeah, just get a GCSE book and give it a read to grasp the basics. Didn't you think about this before choosing your ASs?

    Like everyone else says read some GCSE revision books. Those should get you started! Do you know anyone that could lend you in textbooks? Those might help too.

    I thought you were doing a BTEC plus 2 A levels already? Also you said you had an A* in GCSE Maths in another thread when I questined why you were doing Further Maths instead of Maths at A level (which still doesn't explain why you would do Further Maths instead of Maths A level).
