    And I'm just doing my GSCES and thinking how i got an A in year 9 and went downhill from there. I honestly usually get E's, D's, C's and occasionally a B im so stressed

    how am I meant to even get an A in gsces if I haven't got one since year 9

    Honestly you are probably not going to go from an E or D to an A. Focus on passing everything, revise hard and apply yourself.

    For science use these videos: myGCSEScience, they're £50.00, but if you use them right then you will get an A/A*

    Revise hard, see/email teachers if you don't understand something. I really don't understand split ring commutators in physics, so I just learnt a paragraph explaining how they work off by heart so I could write that if asked to explain them in the exam. That worked really well as I got the marks for that question in my mocks, without actually understanding the topic. Do lots of past papers to get a feel for what the questions are asking of you, and to practice time management. Good luck, passing all of your subjects is what is really important.
