Cute cat! :laugh:

I'm not sure if you're doing English Language GCSE or English Language and Literature GCSE combined but here are some tips:

English Language:
  • Practise your writing skills by writing different types of texts
  • Read books to build your vocabulary
  • Read the newspaper daily and analyse them
  • Watch Mr Bruff's videos on YouTube
English Literature:
  • Make sure you are confident with the books you are studying
  • Summarise the books you know in bullet points and check if you have covered each important section
  • Analyse every single thing in every poem, each little bit has a meaning
  • Try to compare different poems
And of course, past papers.

Not sure which exam board you're doing but these are specifically for AQA, however these tips can be used for many exam boards.
Check out these awesome revision tips by a fellow TSR user.

Here's some tips for your Maths GCSE: All I can say is past paper questions. Only start doing the past paper questions once you are sure you have covered every topic.
  • Work through the ExamSolutions videos if you ever feel you feel like you are stuck on any section
  • Feel free to post in the TSR GCSE Maths Forum if you are unsure about something (make sure provide the question and what you have already done)
  • Do every single past paper
  • Mark your papers and see where you have gone wrong
  • Look to do IGCSE papers once you have done all of the GCSE ones
You can always use the TSR Study Resources for any subject, pretty helpful revision material on there. Also there is a very useful Study Planner on TSR which you may use, if you find that timetables are something you don't stick to then make a list of things to do per day/week and tick it off as you go along.

If you need any help TSR is a great platform to ask on. I can help best with your GCSE Mathematics if you like, so you can PM me whenever. What other subjects do you do I may be able to help?

Yepp, I did History GCSE here's what I done:
  • Summarise the content of each module on one sheet of paper and memorise this
  • Condense events into 3 bullet points [Linking with the point above]
  • Make a list of significant events and their dates and highlight each one you manage to remember
  • Do every single past paper question
  • Plan your essays with bullet points within a minute
  • Time yourself when doing essays
  • Practice writing really fast
I hope this helps! Image
