    Woahh!! How did you revise for maths and what exam board did you do for maths and English language?
    For Maths I did OCR J567 and I used a CGP revision guide to revise for it then did all the past papers. I did AQA for English and English Literature - MrBruff is a good resource for anyone doing those subjects.

    Everyone here is so clever!
    I got:
    English Language – A*
    English Literature – A*
    Religious Studies – A*
    Media Studies - A*
    History – A
    Art – A
    Science – B
    Spanish – B
    Maths – C

    I'm really not a mathematical person, so my parents were so happy I could get a C - I had a tutor for year 10 and half of year 11 to help me.
    I really wish I could have done better, but I did on or above my target grades so...

    for maths first do as many questions for each topic as possible so you get confident and know your problem areas (then do more for those), and then go past paper crazy! and for the other subjects I recommend flash cards and saying things out loud/testing yourself and doing past papers for science and stuff

    I know what you mean. I'm doing 9 GCSEs as well and I know I can't get an A star for all of them because of ****ing Edexcel Drama. I can only get an A in that because apparently Drama Edexcel is really tough and the exam is marked harshly. However, I know that I can get 7/8 A stars with some effort. I hope that's enough for PPE at Oxford.
