**additional**resources which were designed for GCSE 9 - 1.

If you're looking specifically for Foundation tier resources, then this post provides a good summary.

**Practice papers**

All four awarding bodies have published numerous sets of practice and past exam papers. Given that the differences between exam board specifications are minimal, we are able to use 9 - 1 papers from every exam board. Don't forget that old GCSE papers - including intermediate tier papers - are still helpful too.

If this isn't enough, then don't worry - there are plenty more practice papers available. For example Churchill Maths papers are reliable and high quality. The Higher tier papers are particularly good for stretching students who are working at a Grade 8 or 9. You can check out their free sample papers on their website. They're pretty challenging. ZigZag Education also sells packs of practice papers to keep your students busy! Again, free sample papers are available on their website.

1st Class Maths produces free, high quality practice papers.

For £6 students can buy a pack of 6 practice papers from CGP (these are much cheaper for schools to buy in bulk directly from CGP). Practice paper books are also available to buy from various publishers.

**Revision by topic**

Topic tests provided by AQA and Edexcel (through All About Maths and the Emporium respectively) are really helpful. OCR's check in tests are good too.

Maths Genie continues to be a very user-friendly website to point students towards. You'll find exam style questions by topic plus practice papers and mini tests.

Corbett Maths also has exam style questions by topic, practice papers, the classic 'five a day' and loads more. He has recently added a huge Ultimate Foundation revision video and booklet and Ultimate Higher revision video and booklet.

Also, don't forget that Mel at justmaths.co.uk has pulled together GCSE 9 - 1 specimen questions by topic.

**Resources to purchase**

There are loads of resources that your students can buy through Amazon and other retailers. Often it's cheaper to bulk purchase and sell resources direct to students. Plus some schools will pay for them on behalf of their Pupil Premium students. CGP have summarised the content of their extensive range here. Pearson has a range of revision products too, as does Collins and Scholastic. I have written my own Knowledge Quiz revision books which are designed to help students memorise facts. You can bulk buy for schools through the publisher at £5 per book. If you're looking for revision apps, I recommend Key Cards.

**Revision cards**

9 - 1 revision cards are available to buy from The Mathematical Association, Corbett Maths, Collins and Pearson. Flash cards can be downloaded for free from tannermaths.co.uk.

**Aimed at Grade 9**

Here are some resources for students working at the top grades:

- Edexcel has Aiming for Grade 9 papers on the Emporium.
- 1st Class Maths has a great set of 'spicy questions' with lots of challenge.
- There are revision workbooks for 'Grade 9 targeted exam practice' including one from CGP and one from Pearson.
- Collins have a good workbook for students working at Grades 7 to 9.
- m4ths.com has Grade 9 resources here.
- Daniel Griller has published a problem solving book for students working at grade 8 and 9.

**Breakfast revision**

- I have a set of Non Calculator Breakfast Warm Up activities and Calculator Breakfast Warm Up activities for both Foundation and Higher tier. These are intended to provide an accessible, stress-free warm up on the morning of the exam.
- I also have four shorter Breakfast Revision Workouts for Higher GCSE.
- Nikki (@mathszest) has shared a warm up PowerPoint aimed at students targeting a Grade 6. It’s a mixture of reminders and questions.
- Mel from Just Maths has made some useful 'Preparing for Your Maths Exam' slides containing last minute exam tips and information for students. It's probably best not to do this on the morning of the exam, but it's great for your last maths lesson.

**Memorising facts**

In addition to my Knowledge Quiz revision books which are specifically designed to help students memorise facts by repeated self-quizzing, here are some formula and fact quizzes:

- Edexcel has a poster of formulae to learn - thanks to @MaxTheMaths for sharing his related gap fill activity here.
- My adaptation of this formula quiz is available here.
- Shareen Khaliq of Harris Chobham further adapted this quiz for her top set - you can download her version here.
- I have also made a units quiz so students can check they know their unit conversions.

**My resources**

- I've made four sets of revision mats each with four different difficulty levels. These resources suit students working at Grade 1 up to Grade 9 and are not tailored to a specific exam board or series.
- I also made another calculator revision mat (one for Higher, one for Foundation).
- Adam Smith (@Adam_SmithMaths) and I created two Higher GCSE workouts. These take a good 45 minutes and are very 'print budget friendly'. @onechriswhite created a tip sheet to go with the calculator workout.
- I have also made two Foundation workouts that can each be printed onto a single side of A4.
- I made 'Spot the Mistake' revision activities for Higher and Foundation tier in case you're looking for something a bit different.
- My resource Algebra Form Time Revision for Foundation GCSE contains form time interventions which are 20 - 25 minutes long and designed to be delivered by maths teachers using a booklet and PowerPoint.

**Additional resources**

Here are some more general revision resources that I've collected:

- 1st Class Maths has high quality revision resources for both AQA and Edexcel including the Ultimate Revision Booklet for both Foundation and Higher Tier.
- Maths4Everyone has excellent topic booklets and topic review sheets.
- Sparx has shared free crossover workbooks.

ReplyDeleteHi Jo! Awesome info - thanks! Did your school get the Churchill papers for 9-1? How do you find them?

ReplyDeleteYes, we got them. They're excellent. We're putting some of them into a pack to issue to students before Easter. We'll use the rest in class. They're very high quality, definitely worth the money.

DeleteExcellent - thanks for the info! Will definitely look into them!

DeleteHi, Try a look at Mathsbot.com for generated Practice papers Higher/ Foundation (9-1) plus a lot of help for all the new topics.

ReplyDeleteHi. Thanks - I've already mentioned Mathsbot.com in this post (listed under 'more resources' above).

ReplyDeleteHi. Check out this Twitter thread - there's a couple of links here https://twitter.com/oca_maths/status/815597506625212416

Delete(The Edexcel list is easily adapted for AQA)

DeleteRecently I found a blank formula sheet which was great for checking which formula the students could remember. It was based on the edexcel sheet and called a formula quiz but I can't find it again. Can anyone help?

ReplyDeleteIs it not the one I listed above (bullet point 6)?

DeleteThanks

ReplyDeleteBrilliant, many thanks. Have a good day

ReplyDeleteJust to let you know - the Pixi maths TES link is dead. You might want to link to the Pixi website here: https://www.piximaths.co.uk/revision-materials

ReplyDeleteThank you! Fixed.

Deletereally good. helped alot thanks!

ReplyDeleteWow, great post.

ReplyDeleteThis Revision resource is a great tips for the students. From this tips I mostly like the practice papers tips. I am very happy to see that topic. I request to give more post about essay editing service.

ReplyDeleteThank you so much for doing these - I always forget where I found what, so to have it all summarised in one place is GREAT!

ReplyDeleteThank you!

Very interesting! Thanks for the share

ReplyDeleteThis is so helpful. Thank you so much

ReplyDeleteThanks, this is really useful! I've also created documents of past IGCSE questions for every topic, at least in the old syllabus, mostly with video solutions too. They are are collected on my website here https://mathsaurus.com/gcse-and-igcse/igcse-exam-questions-by-topic/

ReplyDeleteI vaguely remember a resource which generated "first 10 questions" for foundation students. I've had a hunt about but can't find it. Does it ring a bell for anyone?

ReplyDeleteThis is helpful! Thanks.

ReplyDeleteThanks Jo. You are a life saver

ReplyDeleteHi Jo,

ReplyDeleteDo you anything like cross over topic list or something for the students targeting grade 5-6

Hi Jo. https://www.examq.co.uk is a good new free website to find exam questions that match each of the bullet points on the advance information list for Summer 2022. It has Edexcel GCSE Higher, AS and A-Level Maths questions.

ReplyDeleteFab! Thank you. I will share this on Twitter.

DeleteHi Jo, do you have any new resources that you're aware of?

ReplyDeleteNothing I know of. If I see anything good, I will add it here. All the resources made in May/June 2022 were tailored for the Advance Information, so short shelf life! One thing worth checking out might be https://www.1stclassmaths.com/exam-papers.

DeleteHi Jo, do you know why the @gcse_math link to all the GCSE maths exam questions is broken?

ReplyDeleteThanks! He moved his site. Fixed now!

DeleteHi do you know of any GCSE revision techniques that promote students actually doing revision. Other than papers society? Things like Miss B's passport booklets, where students are doing questions and get rewarded or maybe loyalty cards with revision? Prizes that are cost effective. (not sure if my previous post was posted, if it was, just ignore this)

ReplyDeleteHi. My school has a Prom Passport. All Year 11s are given one. It looks like a passport and they carry it in their blazer pocket. When they attend a study session they get it signed by a teacher. The idea is that if they go to enough study sessions, they get to go to prom. I'm not sure that we'd actually stop them going to prom if they didn't use it, but it does seem to motivate them.
