Test papers are good to see what you need to revise. Using the questions you get wrong, you can work on those topics and go back to the question, to see where you went wrong, and put it right :)

Ohh, yeah i get it now :)

Jus trying to work out an answer :D

1. multiply out the fraction to make it top heavy -> 24-25/8

2. make the 24 a fraction too -> 24/1 - 25/8

3. make the denominators the same :) -> 192/8 - 25/8

4. Take away 25 from 192 -> 192/8 - 25/8 = 167/8

5. Simplify :D -> (you can't do this one so it stays as 167/8)

YAY!! YOU'VE ANSWERED THE QUESTION!! :D I FINALLY GOT IT :) HOPE YOU CAN LEARN FROM THIS ASMAA!!!!!!!!!!!

just do past papers. that helps me. :) and sometimes the questions are repeated! so its good if you learn how to do the past paper questions. Plus you get exam practice

Like above just keep using the exam papers! They have similar questions and if you don't get some, you can revise just on them! Use BBC bitesize, or a revision guide even ask the teacher if you don't answer the question, it will definitely boost up your grade by a few marks, if you know how to do it.

Just keep repeating it, writing it out, sounds silly but maybe look, cover, write, check, it works for me and also doing questions!

All the best for the exam and good luck! Rhiannon x

THE BEST WAY FOR MODULE 5 IS PAST PAPERS!!!!! 

DO THEM UNDER TIMED CONDITIONS AND THEN GO OVER THE STUFF YOU DONT KNOW. I DID THIS FOR MODULE 1 AND 3 AND GOT 100%....

IT REALLY WORKS XD

The best way to revise is by doing past papers and doing questions from exercise books, then ask your teachers to mark them or you can mark them yourself and then re-visit the areas which you are stuck on, or not getting as good marks at.

once you've learnt everythin to the best you can, then carry on doing past papers, you can try the aqa website or even edexcel and that. there are sites too which can help you revise if you are stuck on things that you don't want to ask your teacher.

Good luck for the exam, mine's in June so i'm doing a bit of maths revision every now and then, alongside all my other subjects. :D **

 I tend to just sit down with my book and read through my work. Maybe even make up a few extra questions. It helps me but its different for different people. Good luck :D

If Module 5 isn't going in: Try doing past papers- thats what I'm doing at the moment and it really helps because then you know what you can do and what you cant do! Something else that helps is making a mind map and making it really colourful and drawing pictures because then it goes in better because you remember the picture!! :)
