The best revision resources for Maths GCSEs 9-1
It’s very important to have the correct revision resources so you know you are revising the correct content and to the highest standard. We have composed a list of best revision resources for each subject in GCSEs with thorough research. Please ensure you use revision resources for the correct exam board. Each book/resource will indicate the exam board, our resources at Cognitate are for Edexcel and AQA.
For maths, exam practice questions are the most vital resource for revision. Ensure that when you get questions wrong that you fully understand where you went wrong and learn from it.
Cognitate has a large library of exam practice questions ranging from Grades 4-9, we also have other recommendations for revision. Here’s a few of our favourites for exam practice.
Our online resources have detailed mark schemes and accurate questions similar to the real question on a GCSE paper. Our resources are also free to use!
These papers are full of realistic exam questions, with questions ranging from grades 5-9. To use these resources efficiently, time yourself 1 hour and 30 minutes for each paper. We suggest completing as many of the papers as possible and replicate real exam conditions.
CGP still reigns in the revision guide department, their standard revision guide has a good overview of the syllabus, however since it is a condensed guide, it often doesn’t go into enough detail for high grades. This is why we also recommend picking up the Higher Extension Practice, Reasoning and Problem-solving Book by Pearson for Edexcel if you are aiming for top grades. We strongly recommending doing more than just the practice questions in each revision guide, this is because the questions in the revision guide will be related to the previous few pages in the book, this doesn’t teach you how to recognize what method to use for each question, we recommend using mixed question banks and practice papers to help learn this skill.
Grade 9 Resources
Edexcel + AQA
For those aiming for top grades, it’s important you do the last few questions on every past paper as they are often grade 8-9. In addition to that there are a few resources aimed at grade 9 students. We highly recommend the Edexcel CGP grade 9 workbook, (AQA), as it prepares students for the last few questions of the exam paper which also has the most marks.
