    Hi guys im new here but im hoping you can help me! Im 14 yrs old and in yr 10 at a grammar school (uk). I don't understand anything the teachers say ( this isnt helped by some learning difficulties) and i am generally struggling with school atm. I come from a clever family thougj but i havent the genes lol. Anyway i dont remember anything from yr 7,8,9 or the beggining of yr 10! Im on course for d's although officially predicted A's from cat tests. I really want to turn this around though and suprise everyone. For the sciences i have bought the cgp complete revision and practise for my exam board and each individual science. If i learn everythjnf from these books and work really hard on just them could i get an A/A* in my GCSE. Is it possible? Thanks for any replies 😜😛😜😛😜😛

    from only the CGP books... i wouldn't think that you can achieve A/A* grades
    you may have to do more research ( higher level things that are maybe not in the book)
    Plus you need to do past paper to practice, how you could answer a question

    My mum always gave me and my brother and sisters the CGP books for each of our years in secondary school and I'm certain they helped us all. For our GCSE's and A 'levels she has always encouraged us to read the specification for each of our subjects and use past papers. Although my mums job means she absolutely knows what she's talking about being that she's my mum it took I while for me to GET IT! My teachers repeat what my mum has been saying to me So yes CGP books would be great for you. Not sure what Science your doing but www.my-gcsescience.com has to be worth a visit. Its brilliant and really helped me and hundreds of other students. another good website is www.revisegcsehistoryco.uk mathwatch is free with my school I would think a lot of us who are aiming to get the higher grades do put a bit of effort into finding good resources to aid study outside schoolGood luck
