    Hello

    Haven't started revision, probably will start in Feb half term/ early march since I have a really short term memory

    So far, it hasn't actually hit me yet that they are this year so I'm feeling pretty chill

    Yep, 60% controlled assessment (2 x 20 hour assessments)
    Good thing is that the exam is only 40%

    I've made my exam timetable already (my school hasn't told us when the real exams will be, so I decided to search it all up). That's about the only thing I've done to prepare for the GCSEs.

    Yeah. We've finished all the topics for maths, though, so we're focusing on OCR Additional Maths now.
