Here's one mark for your GCSE

Let's get through the GCSE paper. The first question is about factors of 10. If you multiply by 10 then the decimal point moves once to the right. So 5.62 becomes 56.2. For the first question you are given one number multiplied by another. Then you are asked for the answer when one number has been divided by 100. Forget the numbers (I haven't even told you them), the question is asking if you can divide by 100. Let's say the first answer is 4532, then the answer they want is 4532 divided by a hundred. The answer isn't important. What is important is that you know to move the decimal point twice so that the number becomes one hundredth of what it was.

If you followed this blog then you have your first mark on the GCSE paper. I don't mean that you have one mark, you have one mark on any GCSE paper. That's a good start for one paragraph. Treat every question with the same amount and you could soon have no excuse for getting anything wrong.

That sums it up.
