    Ordinary Level. jamielovesmusic123

    So , Here I am starting new chapters this year for Maths, We are currently on Co-Ordinate Geometry : The Line , I am finding Maths really difficult and have not passed a single Maths test in class EVER... No matter how many times I practice Questions over and over again it still doesn't sink in... Does anyone have any suggestions because the course just gets harder and harder and I am worried that I won't at least PASS (D3) Maths in my Leaving Cert......

    Thanks :)

      Hey Jamie ! I can totally relate to you. I'm not in 6th year yet but during the JC honours maths (based on OL LC)was sooo challenging for me. I think that if you think only about yourself and don't compare yourself to the best in the class. I ended getting the same mark as one of the top guys in the class because I worked at it. I thought it would never sink in but eventually it connected and I could attempt questions on my own. I know it can feel like your defeated but honestly don't give up. If you can afford grinds great but if not there may be someone in your family who can help you. I also used Khan Academy that's great and Less Stress More .Success also helped me. Hope this helps.

      Maybe at the end of class ask your teacher for help if they have a free class during religion.
