I would suggest you focus on all of them up to topic 81. Watch the video at the top if you want tips on how to make the most of this webpage. Let me know if you need anything else and good luck!

Great to hear that your revision is going well. Make sure you use the quiz questions to further check your understanding. You may want to check out this link for some more calculator tips

higher tier, looking for an A but am not great at maths.

• #### MathedUp

December 12, 2015 at 5:44pm

My suggestion is that you ask your teacher which topics you need to revise. You could use your mock exam paper to help decide

April 12, 2015 at 4:09pm

Thank you. I’m using alongside showbie with my students…

• #### MathedUp

April 14, 2015 at 12:39am

Great to hear that you are finding it useful. Are students using Showbie on their own devices?

• #### Zeb

April 18, 2015 at 9:40pm

I made a successful bid for 42 iPads for them. I’ve let them ‘own’ these until the exam… A risk, but I think it’s worth it!
Do you know showbie?

• #### Zeb

April 18, 2015 at 9:44pm

Have you seen mathsantics videos?

• #### MathedUp

April 20, 2015 at 7:17pm

I have seen showbie and it looks great. I’m jealous of your iPads! At the moment, only have the one that I use.

I have had a quick look at the mathsantics videos but haven’t used them with students yet. I will get them to have a look.. My first impression was that some of the graphics were a little distracting! Have your students tried using them?

I don’t understand how 1010 is 10 to the power of 10?

• #### MathedUp

June 7, 2015 at 8:25pm

It is a misprint. It should say 10 to the power of 10 in the question. Thanks for letting me know, I will fix it π
Good luck with your exam tomorrow!

• #### Em

June 7, 2015 at 8:27pm

Oh I just thought I just couldn’t do it. Thanks π

• #### Em

June 7, 2015 at 8:51pm

Do you think there is any chance that proof will come up tomorrow?

• #### MathedUp

June 7, 2015 at 8:54pm

I reckon there is a fairly good chance there will be. Have you tried some of the proof questions above?

10. #### Em

June 7, 2015 at 9:25pm

Yes i tried a few just in case

• #### MathedUp

June 7, 2015 at 9:29pm

Ok. Have you used the checklist at the top of the page? Have another scan through and just choose 1/2 more topics to have a quick practice at.. And then an early night π
All the best for tomorrow! Be sure to come back and let us know how you have got on..

11. #### sam

June 7, 2015 at 9:32pm

im confused on question 2a in the area of sector question could you please explain it? I just thought you would do 10 squared instead of using 20

• #### MathedUp

June 7, 2015 at 9:39pm

I will try..
You usually have the angle in these types of questions.. You would then use the angle and divide it by 360 to find what fraction of a circle you have got.

In this question, you have been given the arc length instead of the angle. This means you need to know the circumference of the whole circle in order to work out what fraction of a circle you have.

The circumference of the whole circle would be 20pi. As the arc length is 15, the fraction of the circle we have is 15/(20pi).

You need to work out this fraction and multiply it by the area of the whole circle (100pi). This will give you the area of the sector..

I hope this is clear enough, let me know if you have any further questions.

• #### sam

June 7, 2015 at 9:50pm

I actually understand what you mean now thank you. I still feel there are so many questions I should try but its getting late

• #### MathedUp

June 7, 2015 at 9:53pm

It would be wise to get an early night. You will drop more marks if you haven’t had a good nights sleep π Good luck for tomorrow! Come back and let us know how you have got on..

• #### sam

• #### MathedUp

October 8, 2015 at 8:25pm

If you are in year 11, then yes. There may be 1 or 2 missing but pretty much all of it is here.

• #### sam

February 6, 2016 at 11:38am

anything on congruency – i think that’s how its spelt

• #### sam

yes I think I found a paper on it maybe you put a paper on it up after I posted my comment
but thank you

16. #### james

October 13, 2015 at 4:09pm

I think you’ve made a mistake on the surds answers Question 3.
you added the 3 at the start to the 15, but the 15 is still on the end as well. The answer should be 18+6squareroot5 not 33+6squareroot5

• #### MathedUp

October 13, 2015 at 4:39pm

You are quite right. I will make sure this gets changed ASAP. Please let me know if you spot any other errors π

17. #### MegMSMaths

October 14, 2015 at 5:18pm

I was checking my answers using the answers sheet for 63 (Algebra: Indices) and there was a question which said 6-2=3. I just thought that I should let you know so that if you wish, you may correct it.

• #### MathedUp

October 18, 2015 at 9:00pm

Thanks. I have now fixed this π

18. #### anna

On Powers, roots and BIDMAS, question 8i, the answer is wrong, 2×3 is not 12.

21. #### john

November 3, 2015 at 6:58pm

I think question 10 on difficult rearranging formulas is also wrong.

22. #### sharon

November 6, 2015 at 9:35pm

hey mathedup! I’m doing my higher paper soon and I’m looking to get a B, what topics should I revise?

• #### MathedUp

November 7, 2015 at 9:25pm

Hi Sharon, I suggest you make sure you are comfortable with all the things you have covered in class so far this year and last. If you feel confident with everything up to about topic 92, then I would be surprised if you didn’t go on to get at least a B grade. Good luck with your mock exams!

23. #### Sujiva

November 7, 2015 at 2:39pm

Thank you so much for this website. I am currently in year 10 studying GCSE Edexcel maths. As you may know, the topics for our GCSE next year in 2017 will be harder for us. Is it worth to study the topics you have listed above and are there more topics that our year are required to study?

• #### MathedUp

November 7, 2015 at 9:28pm

Hi Sujiva. It is definitely worth covering all of the topics above. However, I would speak to your teacher about which other topics that you will need to cover for your syllabus. In the future, I may look at adding some more content to this page to cover the new syllabus. Good luck with your studies for the rest of this year and beyond.

24. #### fabsyfab

Hi there, I’m in year 11 and have been using these topic tests to revise but I can’t access any revision questions any more…it says I need a password. This was really helpful but now what can I do?

• #### fabsyfab

Sorry it is just the quiz I can’t access.

• #### MathedUp

When you click on the quiz, there is a separate site you need to register with. There should be a link near the bottom of the quiz screen..

• #### MathedUp

January 13, 2016 at 6:52pm

It means 10 to the power of 3. It is a typo

hi, im a mature student, have to do a maths gcse and im stuggling with what to revise, i took a maths gcse back in june and november last year. i found that in both papers they really focused on algebra and quadratics. this year i will be doing foundation in the hope that they havnt spiced that up too. i just dont know where to start if im honest and im looking for some advice as because of failing, my nursing place at uni was given away π

• #### MathedUp

February 4, 2016 at 11:52pm

I would suggest you start by downloading last years Foundation exam paper (June 2015) and giving it a go. You can then use this to get an idea of which topics you aren’t sure about. Once you have done both papers and a self assessment, send me a message on here letting me know which topics you didn’t understand and I will help you out together a plan. I’m sorry to hear that your nursing place was given away but I’m sure that we will be able to get you to where you need to be with your maths and hopefully you can reapply. I look forward to hearing from you again soon π

• #### MathedUp

February 26, 2016 at 9:56pm

I believe topic 82 (standard form) question 1a is incorrect as it should be 3.7 x 10 to the power of -4. However, it states that the answer is 3.7 x 10 to the power of 4. Thanks!

Question 18A on algebra – collecting like terms is incorrect to my knowledge. It is 3f instead of 5f.

41. #### Odin

May 8, 2016 at 8:40pm

Hi nice work, just wondering if their is a mistake in set 82 (standard form). Because question 1b is supposed to be 8.25 * 103 or 8.25 *10^3.

• #### Odin

May 8, 2016 at 8:41pm

*there

• #### MathedUp

May 8, 2016 at 10:00pm

It should be 10^3

42. #### Hannah

May 23, 2016 at 10:45pm

for the ratio question *14, I think you may have gotten the answer slightly wrong. Talil only needs 60kg of sand and he has 85kg, therefore he can make the 180kg of cement. He doesn’t need anymore sand.

• #### MathedUp

I am a student currently in first year of college retaking maths in June , I feel blessed cause im still doing the old sllyabus its my last chance to retake and pass otherwise I would have to do the new sllyabus. So far I think this website is awesome, however it would of been better if you wrote the answers down step by step, as to gain all the marks you need to show the examiner how you got the answers with all the working out especially with the 4, 5 mark questions.

Thankyou though so far this is the best maths website I have ever came across
