    Uhhh... i actually feel sorry for you.. i had RE last year (Boring af). My first exam is ICT (on the 18th) then the next is on the 23rd so im good for May .

    And with Science... just do a lot of past papers... I won't lie, if you know nothing but do every single past paper, you should get at least an A.

    and good luck with your exams too!!!

    What's the subject?

    It's Maths, but I feel like I'm going downhill in Science too, and they both used to be my strongest subjects - I don't know how to revise for Science..

    RE aint too bad! I find it rrrly easy so I'm glad it's an easy start.
    Hahaahahah that's the best way I learn tbh, doing past papers - seeing what i cant do, and revising that. I'm aiming for A* in the three separate sciences and im still on unit 1 for each.... sickkkkkkkkk (doomed af)

    I have 22 exams i think total wby

    What changed? Lots have told me that English is natural talent. I've never really had trouble with English (Predicted A*s for both), but some of my friends say they're destined to fail English and I don't know how to help them.
    I'd be one of those people :hide:

    With Maths, use a site called MathsWatch VLE (only if your school has it) if not... i highly recommend searching up videos on how to do topics on YouTube... this will help so much! like it help me so much (From C to A* in 6 months)...

    For Science, search up your exam board's learning checklist thing online... the majority of the time, it contains the answers for the longer topics... i also recommend just reading the revision guide and then taking notes on topics you think you may struggle on... also the one word answers on the flash cards....

    For both subjects, do every single past paper! that's what i did and it helped me so much!

    basically ye when you analyze, write a lot about a little. get small quotes and think about different interpretations

    That makes sense, except I've got to somehow come up with viable interpretations, which I really, really can't do.

    The viable interpretations don't have to be that good. Like you can literally chat out of your ass and if it's somewhat relevant, then you'll gain marks.
