    I'd revise A Levels if I were you. You'll see GCSEs as being the easiest time of your school life when you have done them.

    lol, I'm going to be a teacher you know, have offer for PGCE.
    Well, I'm sure you'll learn one thing in that course: not to get rude to students, and to encourage them on whatever decision they'd like to take.

    Seriously. I don't even believe you.

    Is it good to revise GCSE from year 9?

    I want to get a good GCSE grade, will revising now help me get A*s or As.

    I want to go to Medical School when I'm older so all As is a good impression but even some people get rejected with all As so it's very tough...

    Thanks
    Josh

    * I know it sounds really cheesy but I really do need to get all As, I love medicine

    Enjoy your life - don't waste it from the age of 14 doing revision. If you're studying medicine, college and Uni will be hard enough without you heaping unnecessary work onto yourself now.

    Don't bother. Revision means to look over information you already know, and if you haven't even been taught it yet, you'll just confuse yourself.

    Chillllll.

    I didn't start revising until the last two weeks of year 11 and I did OK.

    From experience, I'm in year 10 now, revise what you do in the SUMMER term only. Even that really only plays a small part in the actual GCSe. Seeing as you are in year 9 you will be taking the new specification, that we are doing and it is mostly applying science which isn't something you can really teach yourself. RELAX! Don't stress, you still have a year lucky!

    Well, it's good to get an early start for anything in any situation, so yes, but don't force yourself or pressurise yourself too much.

    I didn't start revising till a week or two before my exams and I got all A's.
    Unless you're planning on doing a language then it's really not needed. I messed around in year nine French so bad and I had to spend about five hours going over grammar I'd learnt in year nine before my exam. But, I still got an A.
    Seriously, it's best not to get worked up. Just enjoy your last year of being exam free. :-)

    Yeah no way will you understand most of the stuff in the course in Year 9. Wait until December of each year before you start revising for the exams in that year woul dbe my advice.

    Truth be told, it's pointless.

    You don't do anything in year nine, fair enough. But GCSEs don't require any sort of reading around. You can learn all you need to know when you have to. For now, just enjoy the total lack of responsibility.

    No, you won't understand the course at an early stage and will probably forget a lot of it by the time your exams arrive.

    Erm, like someone else said, you can't really revise something you've not even started learning yet :erm:. But if you mean reading through Bitesize and guide books early, and generally reading around your subjects, then I guess it can't hurt too much, just as long as you don't stress yourself out too much. Many people find GCSEs a lot easier than AS/A Levels, just to warn you

    You mean you haven't started yet?! Year 2/3 is about the optimum sadly :/ Oh well you will just have to make the most of a bad situation now. It's damage limitation from here on in.

    There's not much point to revise that early, to be honest. Relax for now. I guess if you start looking over so much stuff in the new subjects, you'd get more confused and perhaps more worried about the future. Also, you'd understand most of the syllabus more clearly after attending lessons in school. I'd say revising this early might even be a waste of time as you could certainly pursue in some other interests at this stage. Don't fix yourself just to medicine, read more about other subjects, because who knows your ambition might change later. If you really want to study medicine, just being great in school subjects isn't enough. You should be an all-rounder e.g. good at sports/socialising etc.

    GCSE involves a lot of coursework too (especially DT), so if you really want to do well, my advice would be just pay attention in lessons and put effort in your coursework... You'd be fine.

    I think its good to revise now but it really depends on people's capability.But you shouldn't really stress yourself over it.I think i should start revising now because it'll be easier to understand and concentrate when you go to higher grades and i'm aiming for a medical college so i'll have to work really hard
