    I am in Year 10, and still do not have textbooks. For sciences they said there will be online, but for Maths, English Lang, English Lit, we don'y know anything.

    Do you have already? What we can use to study?
    Thanks!

    Yeah but you don't need textbooks for english or r.s (I never used one) because unlike science subjects you don't need to understand key facts.

    You really don't need textbooks for english lang or lit- just practice writing skills and analytical skills. Textbooks for these subjects will be a waste of money. You don't necessarily need one for maths either- there are loads of great videos online like corbett maths and hegarty maths- and the main thing for maths is PAST PAPERS! What options do you take? (I might be able to recommend some textbooks...)

    Textbooks make things more efficient and your life easier, thereby contributing to better grades. All or a considerable amount of good information in one place and tailored to the exam you will be sitting. Crazy bot to use textbooks if good ones exist.
