Let us help you to pass your GCSE maths exam resit

It’s frustrating isn’t it.

You’ve done your best, you feel like you’re ready and know most of the areas of the syllabus, but when you’re in the exam room and begin to work through the exam paper, things don’t quite go the way you’d hoped.

And then, after an agonising wait, you receive your results – you’ve failed maths.

It doesn’t have to be that way – again

If you’ve already taken your maths GCSE and either failed to pass it or did not achieve the grade you required, then you’re probably feeling a mixture of devastation and that your life’s on hold – but it doesn’t have to stay that way.

If you’re in this position then you’re not alone.

A significant percentage of students fail to achieve their necessary grades when sitting their maths exam, and this can be extremely frustrating.

No student ever goes into an exam wanting to do badly, however, without the correct amount of preparation, along with the appropriate level of support or guidance, the net result is another fail on the tally sheet.

Failing to pass your maths GCSE could have been caused by many issues.

Some of the problems previous students have had to deal with include:

  • Exam nerves
  • Health issues or sudden illnesses
  • Missed lessons
  • Changed schools
  • Irregular or frequently changed maths teachers including cover supervisors

This is why we stress to all students that it really is possible to pass their maths GCSE, and to achieve a good grade, providing they follow an effective study and revision strategy.

There’s no failure – only feedback

We’ll begin by assessing what you do, or don’t know in the syllabus and where the gaps exist that are stopping you from securing the marks you require.

Maths is one of the few subjects where missed learning early on can cause much heartache later – which is why we’ll always check that all the basic building blocks are in place for your instant recall.

Sixth Form or College

Whether you’re continuing your studies at a sixth form or college we can help you. Sometimes a fresh start at a new place, however, it’s important to realise that in either of these facilities the teachers will expect you to be more capable of managing your time than in KS3, so timetabling and removing distractions is important.

Exam techniques

There’s much more to taking a maths exam than simply turning up, waiting for the invigilator to say ‘begin’ and then starting at question one to continue through to the last question.

We will help you to understand how to structure your time so you can gain the most marks which will lead to the highest possible grade for you.

We’ll also help you with the various ‘tips and tricks’ that enable you to save time, both in studying and also in your exam.
