Hi there! Can anyone help me with what revision guide to choose? I'm currently in year 9, and will be doing the New GCSE. I know its still kinda early, but there are some revision guides out. Could anyone tell me which of these publishers they found more helpful previously?Oxford University Press, Collins, Hodder Education, CGP..........Thanks!

I would definitely recommend the CGP ones. Their new GCSE English and maths ones are good and the old ones for the other subjects are great as well. Having said that, I don't think I've ever used any other ones lol

French was a one year course so we had constant lessons and less time to forget the vocab (plus I was a year 9 who hated revision a lot more than the average year 11) so literally all I did was write a few pages of vocab as notes and do 1 past paper. Everything else was in class. I would advise making sure you knew as much vocab as you can and practising the listening in particular regularly. French will almost certainly be your first exam (unless you take certain units of RS/citizenship, any IGCSEs, or the timetable changes significantly for your year) so you need to be careful not to burn out too quickly from too much revision for the earlier subjects and not enough for the latter ones.
