    Is it normal not to be stressed out about your GCSEs ?I'm predicted all A stars except Drama. I had a nervous breakdown during my first set of ppes and had to receive counselling. My Grandfather's death didn't help much either. I had gotten good grades without revising - 5A* 2A 2B.

    I was 2 marks off an A star for the As.

    WOW WELL DONE How did you revise for Science?
    Thanks! For science, I basically sat down over Easter and drilled the specifications; I'd write down the specification on one half of the page, and key questions on the other half, then cover up the spec side and try to answer the questions. So for Chemistry I might have, "Atoms of the same element can have different numbers of neutrons; these are isotopes" and the question would be "What are isotopes?" or something to that effect. Then I'd do past papers if I had spare time (though we were doing enough in lessons) and then as exams got closer I'd drill again to refresh my memory.
