    Hey well in college it's really different. I don't need science to get me into psychology. I need a grade B in maths and I can get in and do it as A levels or you can get a grade B in GCSE. I didn't get a choice to do it as GCSE so I want to do it as A level 😌

    Ah yes I see what you mean - it's good that there are lots of routes in to A-levels and not just through taking it at GCSE. Let's hope you get those Bs or better and get to do it

    My controlled assessment pulls my grade down but as long as my exam is at a grade A then nothing can stop me from getting a grade A 😌 Thankyou. Good choices their. I would love to do maths but it's like so hard as A level and it's better getting 3 amazing As/Bs at A level instead of having 4 Cs. You can do it. Anything is possible if you believe in yourself. We can get that grade B or higher. We will work together 😌 revision buddies ✌🏽️

    That is a shame that your controlled assessment went bad because Coursework usually eases the pressure on yourself. I am on AQA for Sciences but if you need help with a topic let me know. I will do my best to help unless my exam board does not cover that topic. Good luck with the revision- you can do it!

    Thankyou everyone for your help and you guys have really kept me motivated, I really appreciate that. Let me know if any of yous need any help with GCSE maths. I can give you a username and password for Mathswatch if you private message me

    I checked out the links and they're amazing. They're so helpful and I've been going through them. So many things are similar but they're just different topics but I can deal with that. In my case all I need to do is memorise everything and this really helped me so Thankyou once again

    Thanks a lot!

    Geography case studies, now then - there is always so much to remember!!!
    I write them out into tables of causes effects and responses or different headings and simplify the facts as much as possible. I also make mind maps with the details and then make flashcards for them in the same way as I do for science (so a question might be how many homes flooded?) or something like that.

    Which case studies do you have - and which topics do you do for Geog?

    Hi,

    Good luck with your exams! I am also sitting my GCSE's this year. Like you, I would like to achieve As and A*s. I would like to ask a question:
    How do you revise for Enlish Language and Literature? English is the only subject that I have a hard time achieving As.

    I would also like to ask you:
    Is it still possible to get an A or even an A* if you don't have a good grade in coursework.

    And if it is possible, can you perhaps give me some tips on revision. Sorry if I'm asking too much.

    Thank you.

    With English language the best way to improve your English is by reading and practicing past papers. With English literature you do the same

    It depends. If you get a D in your controlled assessment and an A*/A in your exam it's most likely going to be a grade B overall, if you're lucky it can be an A but it depends on the exam board if it's harsh or not to be fair.

    There's many techniques;
    - Flash cards
    - Writing it down and memorising it
    - Mindmap
    - Practice papers
    - Powerpoints
    - Recording yourself and listening back to the recordings you've made
    - Make notes and stick it in your room so when you wake up look through it for 10 minutes and before you sleep try and memories it; spend 10 minutes on it

    Hi there,

    Thank you and good luck to you too! Great to hear you want to achieve highly.

    For English Lit I highlight quotes in the books and annotate them. Then I make a character profile for each character with pages for Key Quotes, Key Themes, Adjectives and such like.

    For Language, I would suggest like Hambi123 says, doing past papers and getting them marked by a teacher. And try making up your own things to write about like letters - and choose a topic, so you get to practice the layout and tone.

    In terms of coursework, it depends on the weighting. If like mine, they are worth 25% then it might be the difference of a grade so it really depends on the weighting and the grade tbh.

    For revision tips, the methods I use are: make sure you plan out what you want to do before you start each day, use flashcards whenever you have spare minutes, make revision fun - things like mind maps, sketchnoting and diagrams for the wall are usually quite good. Also, using a whiteboard to write out things over and voer can be a bit of variation. Past papers should be done at every opportunity, or even just a few select questions to help you identify weakness. If motivation is an issue, try the Pomodoro Technique and also varying where you study.

    If you need anymore info just let me know
