Get the most out of your revision for maths exams

Don't just work your way through piles of past papers - you need to self-assess your performance on each paper and revise the bits you weren't sure of, making notes and copying worked examples onto cards as necessary. Use some colour coding (lined 'revision' cards normally come in 4 colours - at GCSE, use one colour for each of NUMBER, ALGEBRA, SHAPE AND SPACE and DATA HANDLING; at A level, use one colour for each chapter in your textbook).

When you mark your past papers, don't just 'scribble' corrections - annotate carefully with arrows and bubbles (use coloured gel pens or fine liners for maximum effect).

And for those of you who already know how to mind map, yes you can do it for Maths as well!
