    The transition between 9 and 10 is pretty smooth actually. 10 to 11 is kinda harder because they kinda rush to teach everything in time so its stressful.

    Just be aware that the year forms half, even more of the content for your GCSES so stay organised, do your homework, revise for the tests and make notes as you go along. That will make everything SO much easier and you'll remember the content well if you work continuously and so not have to stress too much at year 11

    Geography is going to be fun, but you will get a lot of exams. I haven't studied triple science, but I've heard it will be very hard and will have many exams, I dropped languages so I had a free space in my timetable so decided to do Engineering, And have not done GCSE PE as one of my options.
    I did Geography, Computer Science, Engineering/electronics And finally Business and Economics at year 10.

    You'll be starting or should've started your GCSE courses for your subjects and be covering new content throughout the year. No coursework - It will be harder. Manage your time wisely, do all h/w and revising will help you survive Year 10.

    If you have any inquires feel free to PM me.

    So I've just finished my GCSEs and I hope this gives you a bit of advice! I've never taken Geography so I can't comment on that as I went for History instead but I did take Triple Science and PE. Obviously we might not be on the same exam boards but for me a lot of the Biology linked to PE. The triple science courses were hard at times but just make sure to take clear notes from lessons and if you are in the slightest unsure, ask your teacher. They're there to help you and for me, my Physics teacher was a star who would stay behind most days just to make sure that people were on track. Chemistry was the worst exam wise so just make sure that when it comes to revision you have an equal balance of notes as well as reading through past exams because a lot of the time they just recycle the questions. As for PE, I didn't like it too much but my teacher wasn't fantastic so that's probably part of it. Aim to get a good practical grade which will take a lot of pressure off in the exam and learn the mark scheme because the way that the actual exam paper wants you to answer is pretty odd. I'd say make sure to do quite a few past exams for this. Overall, study hard and try your best but don't burn yourself out too soon. I massively stressed about my November mocks and it wasn't good at all. Obviously treat all of your mocks as real exams since it will give you a true indication of how you're doing but most importantly, no-one can say anything less of you so long as you've tried your best. Good luck with your GCSEs! :-)

    If you want to know what to expect content wise then no one can really help you as its your year group that start the new grading scale and content for every GCSE subject.

    I took Geography and PE and they're not that difficult, but of course I was on the old GCSE and GCSE grading scale whereas you're on the new 9-1 grading scale.

    It shouldn't be too difficult, and the transition from year 9 to 10 is very smooth. Work hard in Year 10 and make sure you don't fall behind on work. I got quite a bit of homework. I did triple science but that was compulsory if you were in Set 1 for Science where I went. I wouldn't say triple science is difficult, but it was very fast-paced for my class, obviously because it was compulsory for our set 1 classes.

    Try not to worry about Year 10, it's actually pretty fun.

    Triple Science will be incredibly hard for you (and me), now that there is the new 9-1 papers. Luckily, there are going to be less exams (6 written exams and 0 practical exams I think) opposed to 9 written exams and 3 practical exams. However, this doesn't mean there is less content. In fact, there is a ton more content that you'll need to know. As long as you work hard, you can get good grades

    Geography coursework is hell as there's just so much to do. Try and get it all done quickly and don't leave it until the last minute like I did

    French isn't too difficult, again, just get the coursework done (if there still is any). I recommend using http://www.memrise.com/home/ for learning vocab. The website has their own French courses but you can also search for your exam board.

    Triple Science was a pain sometimes. If you don't understand something, don't just leave it and say to yourself ''Oh I'll just teach myself it when the exam gets closer'' because chances are, you won't.

    I didn't do PE so I can't say anything about that.

    Year 10 is actually a fun year. I'd say it was my favourite but I think Year 9 beat it Enjoy it and good luck!

    not that hard, the first difference is your revision will be more noticeable if you get what i mean. in year 9 i was just revising the day before a test, but when youre in y10, revision should atleast be 2 weeks before exams if you have any y10 exams

    It's not too difficult, don't worry about it! Going from year 9 to year 10 isn't much of a difference at all so you should find it relatively easy to settle in. As long as you manage to keep on top of your work this year and not fall behind, you should be fine for year 11 and your GCSEs. Good luck and have fun! I enjoyed triple science, but I didn't take any of your other subjects. If you get along with science well enough, it's not that difficult to manage like lot of people make out. You'll be fine!
