## How to Get a 9 in GCSE Maths?

As mentioned above, revision can dramatically improve your performance in exams and it's essential if you're looking to achieve the highest grade possible. Get yourself into the habit of completing maths worksheets and using GCSE maths past papers to sit mock exams. Work within the time limits for each paper and have family members or friends mark them for you. Review your performance and isolate areas of weakness. You can then use that information to build more effective GCSE revision strategies, leaving you with a much more rounded understanding of all areas of GCSE maths. Sit several mock exams and chart your progress to see improvements. Doing this can help raise your confidence and will show that the revision is working!

If you get a few questions wrong in a specific topic, revisit the whole topic, make sure you cover your bases and truly understand the area and where you went wrong. There's no guarantee that the question will appear on your actual test but a similar one might, so its key that you understand how to answer all questions in the subject area not just the one or two that you got wrong.

Regardless of whether you're studying foundation or higher maths, it's important that you can answer questions across all topics in your syllabus. Furthermore, you'll have to demonstrate that you cannot only answer the question but can show how you arrived at your conclusion. When marking papers, examiners need to see that you can interpret and accurately display a clear understanding of complex mathematical problems. Put simply, you must be able to show your thought process. Don't just give the answer, show how you arrived at the solution. You could potentially receive additional marks for showing you understanding of the problem and how you attempted to work it out.

Use revision tools like StudyPug to help you. As your virtual GCSE maths tutor, we have 1000s of lessons online to help you study maths. Our videos cover every aspect of GCSE maths so if you're struggling with the Pythagorean theorem, need help with quadratics, or anything else, we've got the content to help!
