    thanks in advance

    year 10 is nothing really, don't worry what your going to get until year 11. year 10 isn't hard (even though i failed all 3 sciences) but if you really want to get a/a* in year 10 there is no point.

    The best way to get A*s is to push that extra bit harder and do extra work, getting B's is not hard at GCSE (not everyone might agree).
    you have to absolutely understand everything in your sciences, in biology you should memorise everything and know how to read graphs and their validity. for chemistry you should just know all the calculations and when to use them, and for physics... don't give up on it! i hated physics for the first few weeks but i had to it because i was doing triple. i stuck at it and it soon became my favourite subject and it ended up with full marks in one paper and CA. im now doing physics at A level as well.
    and do loads of past papers for all 3 sciences!!
    for english just keep telling your teacher to mark all your work and keep improving by following any advice.
    i'm assuming you are doing maths as well. Do all the past papers of all the gcse exam board this got me from a C to an A.
    i can't help on the others as i didn't do them but i hope this helps
    good luck!

    I agree with Ishea16, getting A*s is all about understanding everything you're taught as you go along. I just did my GCSEs this summer and I've written some advice on my blog: http://oxbridgeblog.com/ Hope that helps!
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
