How to get the best GCSE maths tutoring with GoStudent

If your child is taking GCSE maths then they will benefit from GCSE maths private tuition at some stage. A GCSE maths tutor can boost grades and save time by developing a dedicated GCSE maths online revision strategy. Stick with us and we’ll share everything you need to know about preparing for the GCSE maths exams, what the GCSE maths course will cover and how best to revise.

What topics are in GCSE maths?

There are six overarching GCSE maths lessons with various topics that are covered under them. Here are the different topics taught in the GCSE maths course.

GCSE maths lessons: Number

The first subject area is Number. This covers the following GCSE maths topics:

  • Structure and calculation
  • Fractions, decimals and percentages
  • Measures and accuracy

GCSE maths lessons: Algebra

The second subject area is Algebra. This covers the following GCSE maths topics:

  • Notation, vocabulary and manipulation
  • Graphs
  • Solving equations and inequalities
  • Sequences

GCSE maths lessons: Ratio, proportion and rates of change

The third subject area is Ratio, proportion and rates of change. This portion of GCSE maths covers topics such as scale factors, fractions, and units.

GCSE maths lessons: Geometry and measures

The fourth subject area is Geometry and measures. This covers the following GCSE maths topics:

  • Properties and constructions
  • Mensuration and calculation
  • Vectors

GCSE maths lessons: Probability

The fifth subject area is Probability. This portion of GCSE maths covers topics such as randomness, relating relative expected frequencies to theoretical probability, and enumerate sets.

GCSE maths lessons: Statistics

The sixth subject area is Statistics. This portion of GCSE maths covers topics such as interpreting data, comparing data sets, and using scatter graphs.

What are the hardest GCSE maths topics?

This can be a contentious question, especially if you get a few past GCSE maths students in the room! Every student has different strengths and weaknesses. What one student can do in their sleep, another will struggle to wrap their head around. This is normal and one of the beauties of study and development.

Having said that, we find that “vectors” is a common sticking point for many students. There is quite a lot of content packed into the “graphs” topic in Algebra too. 📈 If your kid is flying through GCSE maths lessons then great. If your teen is like most and has at least one topic they find problematic we can help.

At GoStudent we have private GCSE maths tutors who live for these types of challenging questions. They love getting into discussions with their students about how it all works and making previously challenging concepts clear for GCSE maths students. If you’d like to book a free trial for your child, we’ll match your kid to the right GCSE maths tutor.

What are the 3 GCSE maths papers?

The three main GCSE maths exam boards (AQA, Edexcel, and OCR) all use a similar format for assessment and provide three GCSE maths exam papers.

How long are the GCSE maths exams?

Each of the three GCSE maths exams is 1.5 hours. There is one exam where calculators aren’t allowed and two where they are permitted.

How hard is the GCSE maths course?

The GCSE maths course was ranked 5th in terms of difficulty by a consensus of students on The British Exams site. Further maths was given the honours of the top spot as the hardest GCSE. Of course, this is highly subjective because there are students who find GCSE maths a breeze and struggle with others.

What we would say is it’s not possible to fluke the GCSE maths exam and a thorough knowledge of the GCSE maths course syllabus is required. However, it’s still more than possible to get good grades as you can see from the table below.

This data was compiled from the Schools Week site and lists the results for subjects over the past three years. The figures are the total percentage of students that received a grade 7, 8, or 9 in some of the most popular subjects.

how hard is gcse maths table

As you can see, GCSE maths appears to be one of the harder subjects to receive top marks in but it’s still comparable to English and much “easier” than getting a 7, 8, or 9 in Double Science.

How do I study for GCSE maths?

We have some study tips for your child when it comes to the GCSE maths exam. Before we get started, the most important thing to note is to begin revision as early on as possible. That’s because the content from multiple GCSE maths lessons can be tested together on one question. If your kid falls behind in one area it will be harder to get back on track.

Here are some GCSE maths revision tips you can suggest your child implements:

  • Create a detailed study plan so that they are practising regularly in small doses
  • Make revision cards
  • Join a study group (or start one)
  • Attend GCSE maths revision sessions
  • Practise past GCSE maths exams (lots of them)
  • Find additional GCSE maths online revision
  • Look for GCSE maths online tutoring early on

When to get private GCSE maths tutoring

You might think the right time to get private GCSE maths tutoring is when your kid starts finding it too challenging or just before the GCSE maths exam. You wouldn’t be alone either. However, if you wait too late you miss out on a golden opportunity.

A private GCSE maths tutor isn’t just there to provide additional support on the GCSE maths lessons and topics covered in schools, although that is a large part. A GCSE maths tutor is also useful for teaching your child GCSE maths revision strategies that will help focus their study time. ⏲️

Kids that get a GCSE maths tutor early on have the advantage of a private GCSE maths tutor filling in any gaps as they arise and building their study plan so there is no last-minute cramming. The GCSE maths course is full of varied content that has to be taught in a specified period of time. The more that your teen has to catch up at the end, the harder it will be to do well.

Should you choose GCSE maths online tutoring or someone local?

There are many advantages of GCSE maths online tutoring but if you know a great GCSE maths tutor who lives close by then this is a great option too. It’s important that you feel comfortable with whichever GCSE maths tutor you choose and if you’re lucky enough to know a good one make sure you book them early so they don’t get taken.

If you don’t know anyone firsthand then a GCSE maths online tutor will be easier to find and comes with the following benefits.

There are thousands of GCSE maths online tutors

Finding a great private GCSE maths tutor in the area you live has its limits. You are constricted to whoever lives close regardless of their credentials unless you are prepared to travel further. Some towns may have just one qualified GCSE maths tutor but it depends on where you live.

If you opt for GCSE maths online tutoring you can calmly choose from thousands. At GoStudent, we always match the right tutor to each student based on information you provide us. That way, your kid will feel confident with their GCSE maths tutor and build a strong relationship in no time helping them nail their GCSE maths exam. ✔️

Benefit from structured GCSE maths online revision

A GCSE maths online tutor will keep all of the GCSE maths online course revision notes, tutor sessions, and additional material online. This makes it easy for your kid to access as everything is in one place.

At GoStudent, our GCSE maths tuition strategy revolves around having professional tutors who start helping from the moment they prepare a tailored learning plan. From there, each student knows what to expect and how much time they have to learn, experiment, and revise. Being organised saves our students a lot of stress and time.

Our GCSE maths tutors can give as much in-depth teaching support and additional material as is necessary to get your kids the grades they want. This can be providing material from a variety of GCSE maths online course books or giving numerous past GCSE maths exams to work through together in classes and alone for extra practice.

When you get in contact with us, we will ask you to provide some details about your child and what they’re studying so we can match them to the best GCSE maths tutor for them. You will then get a free 50-minute class. After that, it’s as easy as logging onto our unique platform where you can schedule classes, find all of the GCSE maths online course material your child has been revising with their tutor, and much more.

The bottom line is don’t wait until it’s too late to benefit from GCSE maths tuition. Your child has more than one GCSE to study for and having a well thought out revision plan can be the difference between a great grade and an average one. GCSE maths tuition will also provide your kid with the confidence they need to study calmly and effectively. Best of luck and we know your child can do it and get the grades they’ve always dreamed of on their GCSE maths exam.
