GCSE Maths Questions
At A Star Equivalency we support students in core subjects such as english, maths and science. For our article this week we are looking at how to find the best GCSE maths questions and the best ways to use them. Having the best questions creates the best foundation to start your revision with. Past exam papers are a really great revision source, but it’s important to remember that they are the most limited source to find and tend to be difficult if you don’t know the content. A better place to start is with MME questions by topic, which are very easy to access and are clearly sorted by exam board so you can easily find the right specification.
Good revision should start with a plan and drive to stick to it. We’ve found that following a plan is a great way to get into a good routine. An easy to follow method that we recommend involves actively correcting your mistakes. After completing questions for a topic, mark them using the mark scheme provided and make a note of anywhere that you lost marks. Alternatively some students prefer to ask their tutor to mark their questions and then provide feedback. Whichever way you choose, you should use the feedback to compile a list of which specific methods or question types you need to further work on which you can use as a recourse to look back at when doing further revision.
After finishing the topic questions, you should be ready for the GCSE maths past papers. With these, you can simply follow the same method of marking a paper and learning from the mistakes. Past papers will also give you a look at all the different types of questions used in GCSE maths exams.
