    Hey guys just wondering how I would best go about getting top grades at GCSE. How much work do I put in? What's the best way for me to revise? How do I get Past Papers? Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths are the ones I really wnat top grades for but in all my subjects I want no less than a B.

    Any thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    TBH, this is very individual, having done GSCEs and now in A'Levels all i can say is test yourself in each subject to see where you´re at in terms of grades. The naked scientists did some podcasts which i found really helpful. if your computer has a microphone you could make some of your own fromn the revision guide. i found that in the science/maths subjects, most of my revision was practice exam papers, this even got me 100% in the biology paper for GCSE. you're best bet would bew 20 mins if each subject every 2 days in a rota.

    Past papers from exam board website.
