PRACTICE really does make perfect when it comes to revising Maths.

Working your way through past papers is the only way to make sure you have understood what youâ€™ve been taught during the year.

Remember â€˜RE VISIONâ€™ means â€˜SEE AGAINâ€™. Redoing homework or past paper exercises again is a good idea, you can compare with your previous attempt. Having done it before does not necessarily mean knowing it!

Make sure that you USE all the resources available to you; past papers, textbook, class notes, homework resources, topic checklists, study guides, internet, TEACHER!,Â etc.

Good luck!
