Every holiday I say okay, I'll actually revise, I'll learn the whole science pec and I'll be a pro at English essay's by the time I come back. That never happens...
This holiday though I really think I'll make more than the usual effort seeing as when I get back school will probably become more of a living nightmare than it already is.

I'm the last year to do A* - U GCSE's but the first to do the 1-9 GCSE's in English and Maths.

Spoiler:
Show


My predicted grades are 12 A*'s and 2 8's (equivalent to A*/A**)




I've had one set of mocks but I was slipping in some subjects because of concentrating on others more so with my second mocks in Feburary I'm hoping to achieve all those predicted grades and make sure everything is balanced.
I am a bit worried though because it was my last day on Wednesday and I've left my Textiles book somewhere in school, that's 2 years of cousework and if I don't find it I'll probably drop the subject because I cannot and will not redo all of that coursework again.
I'll just see what happens I guess

Was this set by your school or predicted by your teachers?

I am confused, do you have both target and predicted grades?

Yeah. 😅
Target is based on SAT's from yr 6 but predicted is from your teachers predictions

Those are amazing grades and I'm sure you will get them! I did my GCSEs this year, so if there is anything you need help with, let me know and I'll see what I can do! I did a GYG thread for my GCSEs and I've got another one for this year (https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=4233122) and you might find them useful.

What subjects do you do by the way?

No problem! Wow that's a lot of subjects, my school only let us do 9 and a few of us got to do ICT as an extra! I did the three sciences, maths, both English, German, geography, history and ICT so a few of them overlap with yours. Like I said, if you need help let me know, and I'll be following your progress

Thanks, I'll probably need a lot of help! My school makes most things compulsory 😕 Hence the 14 subjects...
I looked at your thread and I saw that you are self teaching yourself A Level math, further math, physics and chem. I have chosen Physics, Math, Further Math, Textiles and maybe an AS in French, so I'll need to make sure I get good grades like you did😄

With the predictions you've been given, it sounds like you've been doing amazingly well already!

Yes I have to emphasise the "trying" to self teach It's not really got going yet, but hopefully the new year will change that! Those are really good subject choices - what sort of career are you looking at (if you've thought that far ahead yet)?

😅 I'm sure you'll do fine. I used to have a clear idea but not anymore, I used to want to do architecture until I realised on work experience in September that it takes 10 years to qualify fully😕 So then it was tailoring - its still in question but seems a bit impractical, so mainly I'm leaning towards interior design. 😅

Thank you I know what you mean - I went through all sorts of ideas when I was trying to decide and because of this, I was going to choose A-levels that didn't narrow my choices too much, so the sciences and maths left many doors open, and I can see your choices will do the same Whatever you choose to go into, I'm sure you'll be great

So last year I took 6 exams - statistics, 2 RE papers and 3 Chemistry papers. One teacher in the science department gave me these flash cards for chemistry and I was able to memerise all of them, for once I felt comfortable and prepared going into the exam. Usually I just write out pages out of revision books over and over but these flash cards really helped. Recently when trying to revise for the next 6 physics and bio exams I remembered them and after a lot of searching I found the website:


I think going theough these really help, for me anyway, because it gives you a review of everything and in the style you need to answer exam questions.
Today though I'm planning to finish the portfolio work for my engineering GCSE which is due next Thursday, it unfortunately will take around 2 hours minimum.
