    Oh that's really good I struggle the most in maths for some reason
    In that case, just loads of practice questions on the topics that you struggle the most in - even if you go crazy and end up muttering the sine and cosine rule in your sleep, it will all be worth it in the end.

    I did not revise well at all - GCSEs are SO easy to do well in, especially compared to A-Levels. I started revising 2 weeks before the exams, went crazy, locked myself in my room and spent all day copying notes up (i didn't have study leave so I was actually at school this entire time). For languages I focused on learning all the vocabulary with flashcards and for English, I read the book, read all the short stories and poems and independently analysed them - I made character profiles for the book I did as well. For the other subjects, it was just a matter of memorising. I didn't even touch past papers for maths and sciences whoops

    I got an A* in Maths an an A in further maths (which is VERY hard despite the crazy low grade boundaries)

    I think I did AQA for English, languages and further maths and did edexcel for everything else.

    I made notes from revision guides mostly Then I did past paper questions and sometimes I'd read through a topic really quick and then give myself a few minutes to make as many notes from memory as I could..

    For science I made mindmaps and did past papers, and for maths I made a booklet of key methods and then just did loads of past papers (I probably did the most on maths and science as I found these the hardest)

    I love English so I literally just read the anthology again and the text a couple times; and Spanish... I think I just had a glance at some vocab?

    Thanks! BTW I forgot to mention that in my school, we did 6 GCSE'S in year 10 and the rest is year 11.

    I cannot remember lol - I think it must've been an A - is the coursework worth 25% of your grade? If so, if you get a very high A* ie almost full marks, you can still get an A* overall (hopefully) although it is quite like ypu will get an A. (They either bring your overall grade up by 1 or bring it down by 1)

    2A*s, 5As, and 2Bs. Funnily enough I got an A in maths, the subject I eventually did a degree in and now teach to earn money. A-level maths is way more fun than GCSE maths.
