    Don't mean to sound cocky or anything, but I found GCSE easy.. I didn't Revise for any exam except the night before for like 3hours and I'm sure I'll get at best 10A*s 2As 1D* at worst 6A*s 5As 1Bs 1D*.

    Only subjects that were more challenging were history, English(because I hate writing) and French..

    But with history I just memorised a time line the day before on YouTube and I'm sure I'll get at least an A, English I had good coursework, English language was simple as we basically got told what to do, English literature I was sure I was gonna get a B but I just learnt some essay and key points for one poem then compared it to any poem they gave . Tbh I just waffled.. You can make any point you want as long as you can back it up and do it enough and that's an easy A

    I think I found it easy because I had a good memory.. I could read the text book the night before and right before the exam and know the whole book (science CGP books were a life saver, short and concise notes - easy go remember)

    Other people revise for hours, GCSe is mainly memory but essay subjects are more exam technique

    a-level will be more harder cause more stuff to learn so I'm going to have to revise but yeh hopefully I'll get AAAB

    This will show if I'm smart or just have a good memory
