    Im in my last year and my gcses start around may. Im really worried as im really not good in maths at all and not very good in science/ history. Also because of the new gcse style it's quite stressful. What is everyone else doing to revise as i dont think we can get the new aqa papers to practise and i found the mock exam quite hard. I really need to boost up my grades to atleast pass my exams.

    i'm sorry you're feeling like this what i'd suggest is talking to your teachers about what exactly you need to work on, and ask if they can put revision sessions on (although they usually take place a bit later in the year). if you want study help from TSR, i'd suggest posting in specific subject study help sections so people can help you

    you have time though so try not to worry too much, there's still around 5 months left - you can do it!

    Lol, I made a revision timetable - roughly 25 hour revision per week.
    Overkill? very.

    But, make a timetable and work smart not necessarily hard. All of the hours you put in will accumulate into greatness!

    Don't be scared
    If u revise well,go to revision sessions,ask teachers about what ur unsure of and do past paper questions u have nothing to be scared about.Am sure u will do really well
    Just keep on revising and go over what u have learnt.Research the topics you are unsure about.Be calm and it will be better to remember everything.If you don't think u'll do well in maths research the topics u struggle most on.Go on Khan Academy and HegartyMaths.Instead of just watching these videos make sure you understand it and go over it every day.But don't revise for toooooo long.

    25 hours yikes! did it pay off? but you defo have a point about revision timetables - if that idea interests you you can actually make one using TSR's sister site, getrevising --> https://getrevising.co.uk/
    if you find you can't stick to it though then don't worry - i tried multiple times and always failed to stick to it :') it doesnt matter how you structure your revision so long as you do it in a way that suits you (for me that was doing whatever I felt like I needed to do )

    Lol, I've not actually completed my GCSEs yet - I've just set-in-stone a revision time-table.
    But, I'm sure the '25-hour-revision' weeks will pay off.

    11A*s is what the person who told me to follow such a demanding revision pattern achieved, they were also following a weighty '30-hour-revision' plan.

    Hey there,

    Best way to tackle this problem is to find out where you are weak at, get the resources (books, teachers, websites, youtube channel) that tackle this weakness and then set aside regular times during the week to study and test yourself against the weakness. Then in due time you will get stronger and it will be no longer a weakness. You got this, get after it!

    If you're from Edexcel, the math is not supposed to be that difficult. I am really bad at the subject but I somehow managed to get a B! I think the key is to just practice all the chapters thoroughly, and do extra questions (from different books, or maybe online) on the topics you find tough, and finally, past papers past papers past papers!

    Don't worry about the maths, everyone is in the same position with the new 9-1 and people who are amazing at maths are only getting around 40%. Schools have also sent off mock grades to the exam boards as schools aren't doing well, I'm worrying as well but we have to try not to because if everyone does bad the grade boundaries will be lowered
