    My school has the textbooks on loan to students, so i don't have to worry about that... in Indonesian, I'm just learning conjunctions and all that. And English, we're studying Journey (the short story) and how to write letters.
    so you haven't started reading one of your GCSE books in English?

    What I usually do is look through the notes in the book and try to make notes on my computer or in a note book and see what I didn't write down in class. Then i try to use the notes to answer questions and then without the notes mark them and see what I know then look more closely at them with the books. Also, I use CGP exam style questions booklets to see how I am at answering those.

    I would definitely recommend them as I think they really helped me get a 7a in every test last year. The exam workbooks were also really good at getting me used to exam questions.
    CGP books i get from CGP directly as they are next day delivery and as I bulk buy my revision guides, as in I got all my GCSE ones for maths and english at once, It says it is £2.50 delivery and I think if you spend over £40 it is free but you probably won't but if you buy 2 for each science you will with the revision guide. I also buy there english text guides as they as well as york notes are really good at helping me understand the text more. Here is the link: https://www.cgpbooks.co.uk/Student/books_gcse
    For the oxford university press ones I would recommend buying through amazon as they have good delivery and it is free and if you are a prime member it is next day and even if not you only wait a few days

    textbooks (oxford university press)- Amazon
    work books (CGP)- CGP
    You might also find CGP books in whsmith or waterstones but they probably won't have many and it is a bit of hit and miss.

    Well ideally I want to try and get a no lower than a 7 in each science but I really want to get an 8/9 in each science. I think if I did get a 9 i'm more likely to get it in physics as it is my strongest science mainly because there is quite a lot of maths involved. Realistically I think i would be happy with 8's or 7's but I am going to try and get a 9.
    The set bellow me, which is top set combined got told they are expected 8 and 9's then the teacher decided the next day that actually she would only accept 9's. I only think at most I could get it in one science but I am going to try and get the best grade I can.
