FGCS Resources:
Image result for drive logoGoogle Drive Resources: GCSE Maths and Statistics resources. The link will automatically update with new resources.
There are:
  • Exam Papers
    • Ideally, try to complete all of them
    • Modular papers are more challenging as they focus on particular strands hence questions tend to be more difficult. - Recommended
  • Questions by topic (95% are from previous exam papers)
    • One is a combined file with all the topics in one. Use the bookmarks to navigate
    • The other is specific questions in different files.
    • Some questions may overlap but both are excellent.
  • Statistics revision notes and guide
If you use your Google/Gmail account to log in, there should be an option to copy all the files to your Google Drive account.

Sites/Guides: 
Using these sites: These sites will have a lot of information, some of which may not be relevant to your the Edexcel GCSE Specification. Ideally, identify topics that you need guidance on and then use the sites to revise rather than going through all the content.
BBC Bitesize - Recommended 
Mr Barton Maths - Revision Guide E-Book with brief notes on almost all the topics (does not cover all - especially new GCSE). There are many other resources, such as quizzes etc. that may be very useful (link).

Youtube - Hegarty Maths - Catered towards a UK Syllabus - Associated with the videos is a website http://mathswebsite.com/ (free account needed) - which may help to navigate and includes a checklist.
