    Hey! Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog!

    My Name is Fathima and I will be sitting my GCSE's from May onwards!!

    I wanted to make this thread to help organise my thoughts to help me achieve the best possible results.

    So in my mocks I achieved 11 A*'s and 2 A's!! I would scream with joy if I opened my envelope to these grades on results day!! I just have to make sure that I do not loose my focus.

    My two A's were in English literature and GCSE PE.

    For English literature (the subject I find the hardest!) I aim to re-read all three books and make notes on characters, themes e.t.c.

    Then for all other subjects I feel like I just need to continue what I am currently doing with full determination!!!

    I would really appreciate it if you could share your thoughts!

    I may as well also finish off with my favourite quote to keep me motivated:

    'When I work - I work. When I play - I play.'

    Well something that always keeps me going is just thinking of the feeling that I would get on results day if I were to achieve 11A*'s or more!!!! Another thing is that when I get distracted by something I remember that I have a whole 2 months to fill - this helps me to procrastinate a little as possible!!!

    If you say a certain subject I could probably give more specific techniques?

    I find it really useful to revise with friends for sciences as they involve very little interpretation. I usually act as if I am 'teaching' friends as this helps me to consolidate what I have learnt. Set up little cafe dates with them!! Also you've probably heard this one a million times but PAST PAPERS!!! They are the things that will really give you an idea of what your grades will look like in the summer. If you think it is too early to tackle the official ones now just type in what questions you want on the internet e.g. GCSE AQA Biology Unit 1 exam questions!

    Hope this helped?

    Very well done! For that I'm really not the best person to ask as I haven't done much research myself!! I have bags of time to research that load in the summer, so you could ask me then xx
