Freaking out because of GCSES?Watch
Also Maths. I really really need to get a C in maths. I'm not even focussing on Science in order to pass maths. Can anyone tell me what to do for maths? I've nearly done every pass paper and my tutor is even saying I'm improving which is great. Are there sites or past papers that are not official but are helpful for gcse?
For Ancient History, I'm sure I'll just do a bit of revision but I couldn't care less for it. It's incrediblly time consuming, hindering me from revising other subjects. Plus it's half a GCSE. Pfftt.
My sister, who's now in Uni told me that for GCSES you could literally start revising end of april and you'll still get good grades. Any A-level students agree?
Thanks in advance and good luck children!!!
ANCIENT HISTORY (OCR)
English Language: (these are my tips for the AQA exam board, possibly similar to WJEC?)
- 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
- 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
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
- 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
