    I mean GCSEs
    With revision, start early! I started proper revision for my summer exams in March, and I think that was a good place to start, because it gave me enough time to get everything in order. Also, make yourself a timetable, and stick to it - I used getrevising for this, but a calender and post-it notes can be just as good.
    One thing I regret doing was leaving making my revision resources (flashcards etc) until March - ideally, you should make them throughout the course, that way you have more time to actually revise them come March. Revision methods that worked for me were turning lists (e.g. the stages of the life cycle of a star) into little songs, flashcards, and mind maps.
    As for coursework, try to finish early. With textiles, a lot of people left everything until the very last minute, and though they did finish, they had an incredibly stressful five days before the deadline in which they had to produce about 10 A3 sheets.
    Don't worry, GCSEs aren't as bad as they might seem. Stay calm, don't let school get on top of you, take breaks - just work hard, and you'll be fine!

    Why the hell are we made to do GS? It annoys me. I'd much rather take a 5th AS. Ugh. It's not even recognized by Unis. What will be the repercusions of getting AAAA in your subs and a D in GS?

    Honestly, high UMS As are my priority.

    True..what's annoying is that unis don't consider someone a better candidate if they've done GS or CT....but u do get ucas points for it right..?

    I was going to get Science remarked (one UMS off A), 2 RE papers remarked (8 UMS off between the papers, which converts to 5 marks off) and English Literature remarked (5 UMS off overall, but I was only going to remark one paper).

    Can someone advise me on this please? Btw it's all AQA.
    I was thinking "Would it be worth it for English Literature" because I used AQA's ums converter, and that means I'd have to go up by (I think) 6 RAW MARKS... I was only one mark into an A in that paper, and to be honest I think that's about right... I don't want to pay and then it doesn't go up... What do you guys think?

    Thanks! Quote me if you reply please

    Oh RE was a half GCSE. I'm only two marks of an A in Maths so getting it remarked, and got an A in Lit (just about), and Bio I'm like 8 or seven marks away from an A and aw that's good! WOW 100 % is awesome Well, I', kind of disappointed but oh wells. And well done so what now?
    I see Aww, you're lucky with your Lit mark! I think most people in my class didn't do too well in the Poetry paper, so the majority of the grades dropped :/
    What now? Well now, I finish off the summer prep work and get ready for school on Friday. :cool:

    A^ is an A* with distinction. .. it is the grade higher than an A* in AQAs Level 2 Further Maths Exam. I'm not sure if you can get it in any other exams though??
    Ah, thank you!
