GCSE PANIC! Help? Watch
So I have about seven weeks left before exams start. everyone is expecting me to get A/A* but I've barely started revision. I crammed for three to four house for my science additional 2b mock the night before and don't know how but got 62/90 which was apparently an A*? Sam story for GeographyPhysical and I got an A in my maths mock but I'm still panicking since I never get mock grades in real exams.
with maths I don't know where to start ( I have about ten weeks till the first mats exam) How do I do it and how much do I revise? science about seven weeks. Again how do I do it? , I can't seem to focus every time I try to sit down and I'm now panicking that I'll let myself and everyone else down like crazy!! not to mention geography and French. I'm not confident but the only subject I'm kinda okay with is English.
there also the the fact that all of my friends have begun revising, one girl got B-Ds last year and now she's been revising so much plus tutor that she's getting A to A* 's in ever subject!! I'm nervous and scared because I have this kind of pressure to be the best from everyone personally I iust want to do the best I can but I know I'm not pushing myself and I don't know what to do??
So please thoughts advice, friendly support? honestly I could do with anything right now??
For Maths, I would suggest to memorise the key formulas and just practice, unlike Science, your maths knowledge is applied on a series of questions you may not have seen before, so you'll need to know how to apply it to any question so you can answer exam questions, go to mymaths or emaths or khanacademy or whatever.
For Science (I'm actually going to do Chemistry and Biology, this year), I think that you'll just need to memorise key words and concepts for Biology and the application of concepts in chemistry. For physics, I suggest you do the same thing as maths, memorize formulas and answer questions since I heard that physics have numerous questions related to maths but don't forget to memorise the key words and key concepts, it is still afterall a Science. I don't know what to say for the others since I'm not taking it or since I suck at it. But just remember that I've never actually sat a GCSE exam before, it's my 1st time y'know.
Good luck on your test,. BTW, what exams are you doing for science? Are you taking Triple?
good luck on your gcses and I guess I have been kinda of mimicking them. There's also the fact that when i go to redivide I have so many subjects I just start streaky about how I won't be able to cover them ...

Revision for maths: lots and lots of past papers in timed conditions. When you mark it you will see the areas that you are struggling with, then get your gcp revision guide and learn it as well as the method in the mark scheme.
Science: set yourself a target of papers each night, aim to have gone through everything in about three weeks. Read through the page, cover it up and write down what you remember on another page. Have a piece of paper in your notebook as well with key definitions and equations that you just need to memorize. For the next few weeks continue to keep reading through the revision guides, your notes and do lots of past papers, several times if you have to.
History: I have no idea. Practice papers again?
English: Make sure you know the texts and key points in the plot really well. Write your paragraphs using Point, Evidence, Explain, Language.
You must be clever if you're getting good grades without much revision, so apply yourself and hopefully it won't take you too long to pick up concepts.
I got 6 A*'s and 4 A's at GCSE by revising about three/ two weeks before the exam. Though at AS I found it really hard and got BCCD in Bio, Chem, Maths and English Lit.
I have completed maths and religious studies I got 2As; Iam retaking religious studies. In total I have 13 subjects haven't started revision I am panicking
What do I do ? I have got a conditional offer at a grammar sixth form I really want to go to based on those grades
I did a past paper 10 minutes ago and totally failed, I barely knew what I was doing
And with learning content for any exam just split it into chunks and don't just recite learn how to apply to exam questions...so what I do is make notes with exam questions in mind, structuring all of my thought processes around how the content will apply to an exam situtation goooood luck!
