I was wondering if people who have already done their gcses and achieved a/a* results could share some tips on how to get there. (or anyone really).
This could include how much you studied each nights/ study methods and any other useful tips!
I am expected to get all 9s in my gcses which is the top end of an a*. I take Maths, triple science, both English, RE, Spanish, French, History and Geography so advice regarding those would be very useful x
How can I achieve all a*'s at GCSEs? Watch

- Read through revision guides, make sure you get through everything once per week
- Read through your notes if they are more clear than the official guide
- Past papers (cannot stress this enough - arguably the most important)
Repeat this from about Easter until the end of the exams and you'll have a pretty good chance of getting A's and A*s. Other than that, it's just a bit of luck for what the exam is like on the day.

at my school they made us do past papers all through yr 11 and that was super useful so if you're school doesn't give them to you print them off. my main tip would just be show up- the only subjects i didnt get a* in are the ones i hates and so didn't go to. for languages learn a few words everyday and memorise your grammar ahead of time- putting it to a tune really helps.for geography learn your case studies and physical processes as you go if possible. making flashcards as the schoolyr goes by helps for the small tests and then you have them premade for summer.
tbh gcse's are just a test of memory so personally i just drank i crap ton of coffee the night before each exam and crammed a whole cgp guide into my head- likely not the best approach but worked for me mostly -not for languages though but i always hated them. good luck
