How should I revise for my maths exam?

  • 0 votes

I don't know whether to take notes, I already have loads of notes in my books, or should I just continue to do the questions in my textbook and do past papers?

Hi, you mean GCSE Maths right?
Well personally, im not sure if you'll like to share the same revision methods but;
I do questions from text books, because the thing with maths is that you need to practice the questions and do it, but use other resources as well for example the internet (Sam learning, or my Maths)
And yes! Past Papers is key! It allows you to see how they question their questions, and allows you to time yourself on specific marked questions!
Good luck on your maths exam! I'm kinda scared for mine :|

Past papers.

Do a paper under test conditions and mark it. See where you went wrong and work on those areas by doing questions from your textbook. Repeat.

I haven't done my exam yet, but what I am doing to help me in my exam, is going through all the topics using maths watch cd and they have some practise exam questions available as well so I practies on them. Then I attempt the questions on that topic on my maths, khan academy and if I have any past papers as well.

One thing about maths, is that once you learn something, you need to apply it until you master the skill.

I go through all my maths book and make 2 lists, one of what I really don't understand and one of what I kind of get, but would like a bit more time on and mainly focus on those. That way you'll be able to say to your maths teacher, "Right, I don't get this, this and this" and they'll be able to point you in the right direction. And when you'r revising, you'll really know which points to focus on. Good luck Beth :)

I read through the notes for a particular topic (if it helps to get it into your head then make some more notes) and then answer questions on that topic without looking at any notes. This helps me see if i actually understand the topic or if i need help with it. Good luck

I found that using the school texts books and working through the questions helped me. I did the edexcel modular course.
