    Ok so I’m starting gcse’s in September - all of the 9-1 courses.
    Everyone says that past papers and examiner reports are essential etc. but how the **** can I utilise them when they’re only available in English Lit&Lang and Maths?!?!?!!?

    Only when you've understood what you learned will you be able to do well

    But scienceeeeee ugh. Also I’m gonna need history mark schemes etc

    For most subjects, I'd guess you could just use previous past papers for old GCSEs. They'll be different, but I imagine the course will be similar. Boards will eventually release papers for your new GCSEs

    The exam boards will release specimen papers but that's as good as you're going to get. Everyone will be in the same boat though—including teachers and examiners. Hopefully the grade boundaries will be super low for the next few years.
