    Hello

    My name is Georgie.

    I love reading and writing, but I also like to spend time with my friends and family.

    The GCSE's I'm taking are:
    - Maths (edexcel)
    - English lit and lang (AQA)
    - Biology (edexcel iGCSE)
    - Chemistry (edexcel iGCSE)
    - French (AQA)
    - Latin (OCR)
    - History (OCR)
    - Product Design (OCR)

    So, I'm taking 10 GCSE's. I hope to get straight A*'s and A's as I think I would be unhappy with any B's, however this is my personal opinion so please don't worry if you're just aiming for a C in everything!

    I think I'm ready for Year 11, but I am getting a little scared about the prospect of doing GCSE's. They always seemed so far away and now they're in less than a year.

    I hope to be a vet and take Biology, Chemistry and English for A level - English is my favourite and best subject.

    Good luck to everyone!!
    Hi Georgie! Good luck with your GCSEs!

    I'm doing WJEC history as well Honestly I would prefer AQA since its virtually impossible to find revision guides and websites that cater to the WJEC syllabus.
    Are you guys studying the Nazis, The Apartheid and the Black Civil Rights movement in the USA?

    (would have preferred to study the cold war instead though)
    Hi, I'm doing WJEC History.

    I'm doing Route A, but I'm doing:

    Nazi Germany (1919 - 1947)
    Development of the USA (1930 - 2000)
    The Elizabethan Era (Idk, like 16th century xD)

    There's a really good revision guide, made by a company called myrevisionnotes, which I have used to revise. All the info you need is there and I managed to get an A* in Nazi Germany and A in the USA this year in my mocks so it definitely works.

    I think it can work without, but I tried to use it, however I found that it's too poorly developed to use atm, so I just use Excel instead

    I'm not in year 11, but I'm sitting geography in year 10 with wjec, how're you finding it

    I don't really find it difficult, I mean there's a lot of content to learn but other than that it's fine. My problem is that I don't really like geography tbh, we got a case study booklet for theme 1 and 2 to do in the holidays.

    My geography teacher did tell me your exams are worse, so sorry

    I had not idea this revision guide even existed I would buy it, but it doesn't cover Apartheid in South Africa though

    I've put in all my subjects but since I don't have any exam dates nothing seems to be timetabled. I use Excel too, what does your timetable look like?

    Hey, I'm new to TSR too. It's nice to meet you (virtually, of course). It's nice to see someone else who's studying WJEC History and Geography. I think I'm doing Route B for History, but I'm not too sure. I know for a fact I'm studying Spec B for Geography, and it's one of the worst subjects I've chosen. How are you finding History and Geography? History is okay for me, but the recent unit I've studied (The Role/Status of Women in the 20th Century) was boring.

    I wish you all the best for Year 11. Good luck!

    I think I'm route B for both as well, yay
    I love history so much, so even when it get's hard I dont mind. I'm doing development of the USA, Elizabeth and Nazi Germany.
    For geography I don't like the subject but the content's alright, if a bit much. I have found out I prefer social geography (people) than physical geography
    (rivers, rainforests etc)

    Thanks, best of luck to you too

    I can't wait for History this year because hopefully, I'll find the next modules more interesting. I've just sat the Women module in June, so this year, we're focussing on Medicine Through Time and The American West. We did a bit of the Medicine unit in Year 10 and I found it interesting, so hopefully I'll enjoy The American West.

    I find physical Geography somewhat interesting; I do like Geography as a subject. I just find the spec boring, don't know why. Good luck in your Geography and History exams; you'll smash them.

    I'm doing the same exam as you, in the middle of coursework. I don't really like how topics are reviewed with wjec. It's sort of a repeat pattern

    What do you think could be improved? I'll forward any suggestions to the guy who's in charge of it.

    Hi am Naomeyz_01 and am going into year 11. My hobbies are dancing and singing lol. Am taking 7 GCSEs which:
    Geography (WJEC B)
    English language/literature (AQA)
    Spanish(AQA)
    Business Studies(Edexcel)
    Science(OCR)
    Maths(Edexcel)
    RS (OCR)
    I think am ready for year 11 because I have been doing notes for some subjects such as Science so that when I get to my lessons I know exactly what am talking about and yeah for those of you who do OCR science I use westlands science, simply type it in on youtube to get all the topics from biology, chemistry and physics. I enjoy business studies the most and my dream career is probably marketing.

    This summer I've basically ignored it as I've mainly done science as it's my weakest subject. But preparing for year 11, I just have a couple of hours a night atm for the start, to keep notes and to ensure that I stay on top of the work.

    I haven't really done much revision for English, yet, tbh. In class we're analysing each poem one by one, so I'll be sure to look over those notes in due time. I think for me I'll focus on practice for English Language, and I think the same for English Literature. I will probably compile notes for each of the texts.
