    Im in year 10 and our schools making us do some gcses a year early, we have to do english, french, and their also making some of us do a triple course in science, a full course in PE and in RE in short course time which is really annoying.
    The thing is its making me really stressed an i recently just went into the total opposite of myself because of stress and because my friends who are doing the same don't seem to care too much about it.
    I was just wondering if there was anyone else doing gcses early an how to cope with the stress, its really hard and i dont feel like i can talk to people about it "/

    I did maths a year early and statistics, got A and B respectively. I didnt revise, didnt for any of GCSE's. Seriously dont worry, GCSE's are easy and u can get really good grades without revising, and even better ones by a small amount. Well .. a small amount compared to A Level revision.

    We did a few of them early and although it's stressful right now you'll be so thankful in year 11.

    Just work through them one at a time, maybe create a list off all the GCSEs you have to do and once you've completed one put a line through it.

    Don't worry just think your school wouldn't allow you to do it early if they didn't think you were capable. I did a gcse early in year 9 which I think was just too early (I was such an idiot in year 9 and had no idea how to revise). Just try to be calm about it (easier said than done I know) but be happy that you will have these out of the way so year 11 will be a bit better. To be fair I think your school have gone a bit overboard on the earlies, I understand doing a couple early but that many is a bit silly because the extra year is really helpful to improve revision/exam technique but I'm sure you will do fine.
    Is it just a feeling of being overwhelmed? because I know that feeling and it's hard to give advice about but just try to relax and realise that it isn't the biggest deal in the world and it will all be good when it's over
