    I have controlled assessments for English and History but I do the IGCSE for most of my subjects so they are just exam based.

    It's GCSE.



    If you put in enough hard work, then you'll come out with enough A's to fill the Oxford dictionary.

    I am doing AQA iGCSE. We got some questions for each topic from our school that could come up so most people in my school just write out their answers and memorise them. I prefer to learn the whole topic with those questions in front of me so I can think of what I could possibly say but without memorising a paragraph word for word.

    Mon école est la seule école privée dans le compté de Somerset avant il y avait une autre école cependant en raison de motifs finical, il a fermé. Puisque bon nombre de leurs élèves ont rejoint notre école. Alors maintentant , mon école est un éstablissement modern avec cent garçons et deux cents filles de cing à dix-huit ans auusi nous avons trente professeurs. J'ai presque oublie de mentionner qu'il est situé au centre-ville. Il y a cinquante salles de classe dont douze équipées d'un tableau blanc.L'école possède aussi une bibliothèque et beaucoup de laboratoires ainsi que une grande cantaine avec Une large gamme de repas et deux courts de netball et de basket-ball. Il n'y a jamais beacoup de clubs dans mon école juste le hockey, le football et le club de maths ! Je souhaite qu'un jour il y aura plus.

    I don't know about you guys but i feel like even though i work really hard and even if i've done everything, i would still need to do more. This is purely because i don't know how easy or hard the exam is going to be but i feel like it's going to be easy for some subjects. What do you guys reckon? Are you guys ready? I've also spoken to some of my friends and their saying the exact same thing as i am.
    I agree completely! I never know when to stop revising. I'm definitely not ready and I'm pretty sure my teachers aren't either because I haven't finished all the courses.

    Anyone out there pray for me. Let me get 10 A*s and an A

    Oh same! (finally found someone on here who's doing it ) Yeah I don't want to go in there thinking I have to have all these paragraphs memorised because I'll probably get really stressed out and not be able to answer the questions
    I still fear the photo card though, some of the past ones have been horrible

    its a month before exams so people should really just be doing past papers at this point and finished learning all the content
    Tbh you could still start content now. It would probably take 3 weeks to do all the past papers and PLUS there is a half term. You're saying people should have finished learning all the content, but what if they haven't? I've heard plenty who revise in 3 weeks, two weeks or a week before exams and still come out with A*s.
