    It shouldn't be too hard if you're any good at it, although how recently you've done Maths would also have some bearing on your ability to do it

    I moved from a D and an E on my Year 10 mocks to a solid A. I did a past paper every week, had a maths tutor and just threw myself into revision. You just really need to go for it, don't expect it to just happen.

    Very possible but I think you should be comfortable with the subject too.

    could you, or someone explain the gcse timetable structure to me. When doing GCSE Maths do you have to do only two exam papers or more ?? I got the timetable for GCSE maths http://www.modernisationonline.org.u...le/search.aspx would you explain to me which one's or dates you have to do the exam on ...its confusing, I'm from the us

    I was on Edexcel, I did 2 papers. I'm sure AQA do too, but someone else would verify it. Look at what spec you're on, and type that into the AQA website.

    I did my maths GCSE in Novemeber 2007, and from what I remember is there were two exams, one calculator and one non calculator.

    Where I am at college some people can choose to do Maths GCSE if they failed it first time around & that only takes a year ..

    If you do AQA, there's a linear where you have 2 exams at the end of the year, one non-calculator, one calculator, or there's modular, where you have one exam for module one, one for module three and two for module five.

    You can easily do it in a year, I did it in a year (did GCSE stats in year 10 first lol) and wasn't difficult, got A*s in Modules one and three and I'm looking at an A/A* overall

    Best books are the CGP ones and as previously said the best way to revise is just to do lots of past papers and then look at where you went wrong and go over those specific parts again until you understand it.

    Hope I helped

    You can do it.

    In year 10, my first year of GCSE, I didn't do anything, I was in one of the bottom sets and predicted a D. Come mid year 11 though and that all changed, I realised I needed to work my ass off if I wanted to get anywhere, so, I did. I worked and put a lot of effort in and came out with a grade B. It was phenomenal!! Greatest moment ever.

    With hard work, and putting your mind to it you can do anything you want!

    Good luck!! :ahee:
