    If I don't pass, I'll have to retake the exam again, but the exam is £60 a time. :/

    If you are sure you are ready, go for it. But if you are hesitant, don't risk it, and try to do it at the time you are ready.

    I really need help with revision; I'm really laidback when it comes to it and I fear that it will affect my chances of getting A/A*s at GCSE.

    So, how do you guys revise?

    Hola! I am in Y12 and know how you feel. I may fall asleep soon but what subjects do you do? I can give you some tips if you'd like, although I'm not good at following them through myself!

    Well, Maths, although I don't need help in that subject .
    Aside from Maths, I do English, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, History MW, Drama, Business and Computing.
    I mainly need help in the sciences, as they're just mainly about reading the book and memorising; both of which as I said before, have no clue how to do or get in the mood to revise.

    I too have the same problem with science, but the way I revise is to watch a inspiring video on science which may or may not have anything to do with gcse ( I know it might sounds weird but it works for me) then you might enter your revision session positively, rather than uh it's science, I'll go on my phone instead

    Same here. I hate revising science because there's just too much to cover and you literally need to know everything to have a chance at getting an A/A*. My mum's a science teacher so I have almost every revision material I could need but I really can't be asked. I'm really hoping that the real thing is like the mocks which I think went pretty well for me (I'll have to wait till I get back to confirm).

    I have the same problem with history which is long af but I pretty good at remembering the dates and important people.

    Hi, I'm new on this thread! Just want some advice...
    Just got my place at my school's sixth form, which I have to confirm by the 15th. My other option, however, hasn't even sent out interview dates so I doubt I'll know anything before then.

    I think I'll probably end up going to my school's sixth form, but I don't know. What should I do?

    Hey, welcome to the thread :hi:

    You should probably talk to your form tutor or your school's sixth form office :yep: If it's another local sixth form then it will have happened before and your school will know how to deal with it

    Maybe you could accept the place at your school's sixth form anyway (unless you have to deposit any money, in which case you should talk to a teacher) and if you end up wanting to go to the other sixth form, get your parents to write a letter to the school that you're not going to their sixth form anymore.

    I'm really sad we didn't get to study it or some other Shakespeare plays at GCSE. They always pick Macbeth, The Tempest etc.
    Seriously, we did Macbeth for like 3 years in a row!

    Yes, it is! I find it annoying because everyone's put off Shakespeare (or at least in my school). I'm still not a massive fan, but so much of his work deserves more appreciation than it gets.

    You can accept more than one offer, so just accept it and decide later.
