    Hello everyone,
    Im a year 9 student and i have just decided all of my 8 options. just to clarify, I only have 8 because im not doing Maths and Stats( its a long story). so i wanted to know about the experiences of doing GCSES, how about sharing with me? i heard that there are lots of pressure, is it true?

    There will be more pressure than in year 9, obviously, but it's really not that bad. If you are active in lessons (that is, you don't just passively sit there and not listen or read the board), revise for module tests, and start revision for you exams after Christmas, you will be absolutely fine!
