    That seems so much easier, good luck 😉
    Thank you!! It's really great for me because I have really bad anxiety so it will take some of the stress away from year eleven! English is definitely not my strong point. I have been predicted two A* but I will probably get and A/B!!

    Our school doesn't spell it PEE because we're immature sh*ts 😂 instead we call them PEA, the a being analysis. I honestly hate PEE because it doesn't allow you to link pieces of evidence
    We use MIQEAL:
    Make a Point
    Introduce the Quote
    Quote
    Explain
    Analyse
    Link
    - It's supposed to help us know what to write clearly

    No, we haven't started any of our texts yet. We are focusing on English Language since we are sitting it at the end of the year. My year in year 8 were supposed to read all of it but we had so many supply teachers we read about 1 scene.

    Since we are the second to do the new GCSE Maths and English and the first to do the new GCSE Science exams in 2018 😝(I know you're excited), we should probably get together and share our experiences. Some of us will find it hard and having a thread will help to get through the year.:afro:



    Things you could say:



    - Introduce yourself!

    - What are your hobbies and interests?

    - How many GCSEs are you doing?

    - What subjects are you taking (include your exam board to find others studying the same things as you)?

    - Do you think you're ready for the new GCSEs?

    - What's your favourite subject(s)?

    - What is your dream career or dream uni?

    - How do you feel about going into Year 10?

    - Also, feel free to share any revision skills and resources you have

    Tips!

    -Be organised and consistent with studying, get into a repetitive routine
    -Ensure your notes are clear to make reviewing easier
    - Listen to some music that may enhance your learning
    - Read notes at night as it is easier to remember things then
    - Research outside of lessons
    -Use educational websites and watch videos
    - Find your learning style, auditory, visual or kinaesthetic
    - Don't just copy from a textbook, read, understand and write it in your own words
    - If you're stuck, ask your friends, teachers and family for advice


    Thanks everyone! - Zarah

    Yeah last year in computing we had supply teachers for most of the year, so now we are about to start our programming coursework and most of the class (luckily not me) are atrocious programmers.

    At least the project is only 20% of our GCSE.

    'Only' 20%. I'm thinking of taking computing in year 11 after a 3 year gap. Would you say I really need to catch up or going into it without much knowledge is ok?
