How do I find good revision crammer courses in the easter, may bank holiday etc or even next week for my son.
It needs to be in the London area or daily travelling distances.
My son says the school is concentrating all the revision extra courses on c/d students which I can understand. He got mostly a and a stars in his year 10 modules and is keen to put in the extra work

MPW - we used this and we were impressed. www.mpw.co.uk/index.asp?scW=1280
Other friends have used Justin Craig www.justincraig.ac.uk and Duff Miller www.duffmiller.com and have also been pleased.
Do make sure that the revision course is specific for the exam board your DC is doing as there are a number of variations depending on the Board.

I am sure you DS is working through past papers (downloadable from the web) but my DCs also found it useful to look at the Examiner's reports on each exam as it highlighted why the good answers were good and why some answers were marked down. These reports are also downloadable from the same section as the marking guides.

I was just looking on Edexcel for recent linear maths past papaers, but found that they and the examiners reports are only downloadable if you have a login. (ie for schools etc).

A web search came up with this http://www.bland.in/GCSE%20Maths/ site which appears to have some past papers and questions by topic.
