Here's some tips...
English Language: (these are my tips for the AQA exam board)
- 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
- 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
- To learn vocab: stick to that language's words with their meanings on bedroom wall. Read through every night and highlight the one's you remember (try using it in a sentence).
- Change the language on your phone to the language you are studying, it actually helps a lot!
- Speak to yourself in the languages you are learning, crazy but it's useful.
- If you know someone that speaks the language you are studying, tell them to speak to you only in that language when they see you
- Watch things from France (I got through a whole season of a German soap opera for my German GCSE, it was like friends forgot the name!)
- In your spare time write a story in French
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.
Check out these awesome revision tips by a fellow TSR user.
If you need any help TSR is a great platform to ask on.
I hope this helps!
