    Today I have:
    -sat my English lit exam
    -revised geography (the restless earth and water on the land) ahead of tomorrow's exam. Still got to revise the entire of the coastal zone in the morning (including case studies)

    Hopefully I'll manage to get it done - I'll find a way
    Well done ! Good luck for Geography
    How did you find English ?

    Thank you
    And it went really well! They gave us some lovely questions which I was actually able to answer and I had a couple of minutes left at the end to check which is rare as I'm normally so pushed for time!
    Did yours go well?

    Does anyone do AQA business ? I just wanted some clarity on how to structure answers in order to get full marks. So that would be the 4 mark, 5 mark, 6 mark and 9 mark. Thanks.

    Really? I didn't think it was very good at all...especially the 8 mark questions (well, the second one mainly) but it's probably because I didn't revise enough.
    2 questions confused the hell out of me - the one in rivers where you had to draw a 'plan' of a meander??? And also the one where you had to describe the waves when all you could see was the spray from when it had crashed? I didn't put anything for either of those.

    Considering the grade boundaries for this paper are usually really low I'm quite lucky and should still be able to get an A*. Just gonna have to really work in the half term so I nail the human paper now!

    hey everyone. i feel like i could quite happily secure A*'s in all of my subjects next year for GCSE.
    however, i am really stressing about physics as I find it really hard to apply all of the content to the questions and to make sure that I know all the content.
    would really appreciate if anyone who is confident with physics/is gonna get a high grade in their GCSE could tell me how they revise for physics?
    thank-you, really want to get an A*

    Hi, physics is by far my strongest science so I'll help you out

    What I'm doing, as dull as is sounds, is literally handwriting the specification except for the bits where it says 'explain why...' I'm changing that to the actual revision guide/bbc bitesize explanation. I'll then get to the end of one unit, and read through it all again and highlight the really important stuff, then I'll do a past paper but only the questions of the units I've just revised and stopping when it gets to the start of the next one. I'll then mark it and note down what my weaknesses were in order to later come back to them. I'll then do the next unit etc.

    When I've done the paper completely I'll have a mark out of 60 similar to if I actually sat that paper.

    After a while (usually the next day) I'll do a full past paper in exam conditions and then mark it - I tried to get the 2015 ones as best practise. Managed to for chemistry didn't for biology but I'm trying for physics! If not then I go really old (Jan 2012 usually) as we've done all the recent ones at school so it won't be accurate. I'll then mark it and write down all my weaknesses.

    Then I'll go over my weaknesses again to make sure that I've got them sorted.

    This usually happens the day before my exam for the first bit, then the last 2 happen on the day of the exam. However I wouldn't recommend leaving it this late as it is not a lot of time at all and relies on you having an afternoon exam which might not always be the case.

    Hopefully this has helped, this is how I do it and it might not suit everyone.
