    Hey everyone,
    now before I begin, I would just like to let everyone know that I am currently in Year 9 (still first term), and am NOT going to be studying for GCSE like all day from Year 9.

    I am unsure if many know, however some GCSE schemes are going to be changing in 2017, and that is when we are taking our GCSE then - Basically, we are going to be the first batch doing the 'different' GCSE.

    Now, though I have only heard, the GCSE is going to be a little harder... And for some reason, I am kinda worried about it.

    I do not plan on studying 'ahead' at home for GCSE subjects as I am afraid that I will confuse myself and not understand everything and simply waste time. Therefore, I am kind of unsure of what to do.

    I would love to receive some suggestions and ideas on what to do in this situation, and please DO consider the fact of the changing GCSE.

    Thanks for reading!

    From what i have heard a while back is that the current year 9s will be affected by the new GCSE maths syllabus that has come to place. If i were you i would start revising as much as i can as sometimes you may not cover the whole topics in class.

    The board of education are implying that the current GCSE sylabuses are too easy and need to be thoughend up and that is why they are planning those changes. Those changes are bad as the GCSE papers will be more challenging than beforevfor example, the new GCSE maths sylabuss that has been put to place is full of A level maths including the foundation paper. Imo all this is just ridiculous as how can you expect 15 year olds to know A level maths? The board of education is in sane and thats for sure.

    I am sure you r teachers at school will tell you more about the new GCSE changes. Imo you should not give up and do everything that you can in order to succed for example getting a head start in lessons, doing past papers, using revision guides etc.

    Do not worry about getting confused by starting ahead. From exeperience starting ahead is a good thing as when it comes to class work you wuill know what you are doing.

    Looking at the spec for your exam board is a must, find out what you need to know and learn at least some of it.
