    Right, I'm in year 10 currently, and this time next year I will be taking all of my GCSE's. In 7 weeks I have half of my edexcel business GCSE exam.

    Well, first off, I have messed around in school for the last 3 years thinking I don't need school. And lately I have come to my senses and realised I need school to help me on my way in life. So I was wondering does anyone know any websites where I can brush up on my education for the last 3 years, preferably English, Chemistry and physics! Or any revision Tips, I am willing to put all my time and effort into this.

    Thanks, Dylan

    Have you thought of getting some revision books or past papers from your teachers? I do this for my GCSE exams and it works good.

    Is it the multiple choice one (unit 1)?

    I have no idea, all I know is that the business exam in 7 weeks counts as 40% towards my overall exam mark

    really helps cuz you would get those questions that are mostly asked, second you get to familiarize yourself with exam conditions hence removing phobia during real ones.
    Try testing yourself with past papers on your own with a stop watch.

    1. Don't worry- just get organised
    2. Look at the specifications to see what you need to know and get informed about the papers you are taking
    3. Get exam (board) specific textbooks preferably those with good reviews (see Amazon or ask friends) as well as revision guides.
    4. Past paper questions are a great way to revise quickly as they allow to see what the examiner wants you to know and how they want you to answer the questions (see mark schemes)
    5. If there is anything you don't understand don't be afraid to see your teachers or ask friends/parents (or people on TSR!- I don't mind (I'm in Year 11 and also revising!) )

    Good Luck!
