    UPDATE 06/06/16:
    Did my psychology test today and it was good - not going to be over confident
    Mainly did English Language for my exam tomorrow

    1. Watched 10 videos
    2. Memorized formats - structure
    3. Sorted out timings
    4. Looked at the mark scheme

    Going through the formats again and again There is only a little you can revise for English Language - hate it

    Revision Thread :eek::cool: PATHWAY TO THE A*


    So, here it goes... whoop whoop whoop
    Loads of people were doing a thread like this so i thought why can't i try it out myself so here it is


    Maths Edexcel- A*
    Statistics-A*
    Biology-A*
    Chemistry-A*
    Physics-A*
    English Literature-A
    English Language-A*
    Psychology-A*
    Geography-A
    French-A*

    I have already done two of my gcse's which are:
    Maths IGCSE - A*
    English Cambridge International Examinations- B ( but i am happy with that) I knew i was going to get a B and i was proud



    I really want to get the grades above therefore if anyone could be kind enough and help me out on revision. The sixth form i want to go to wants me to get high grades and i really want to go there!

    Hope you guys understand and could you possibly help me out on how you revise? how much you revise? revision suggestions? and many more.
    I will try my best to help you guys out as well. Whoop Whoop Let's do it guys , let's all get the grades we want and reach for the stars

    MOCK GRADES 2016
    Mostly A*'s + A's
    For the sciences, its all about practice. Do loads of past papers. And read examiners reports.

    For geography, I found making my own revision resources very useful. For example, you could make a fact file of every case study you have studied.

    For English Language, don't forget to really analyse the language the author uses in the reading passage. They really want you to dissect the words and phrases. But after that, always explain the effect it has on the reader and relate it to the question at hand.

    I disagree i think english lit is a load of bs coz instead of creating yr own work u mostly use others interpretations and learn that for u to get any kind of high grade bacmmecause no one can come up woth enough of their own to reach to top brands

    Whereas in language u make up to answer which is fine as long as u have good writing skills

    Altho i appreciate some ppl find this harder and prefer lit.
