    Hello my name is Geri, and I am a year 11 student who is wondering what needs to be done from now to the end of the summer in order to guarantee good results because I will be doing the new specification grades 9-1 and it will certainly be challenging but what else can be done by students struggling?

    Thanks in advance for any contributors


    So I'm in y10 but can still give you some advice. I would say start revising now even if it is only a few hours a day and build I up so that by March/April you're doing a few hours a day. Use CGP books they are amazing and there are many AMAZING YouTube channels out there that explain most topics for most subjects. Go through a topic and when you know do practise questions and papers. The main key is to manage your time well as you will feel less stressed and More prepared for you're exams. Also I reccomend deleting social media until after you're exams to stop you getting distracted!
    Hope this helps xx


    I'm in year 12 and sat my GCSE's last year. My beat advice to you is past papers. By now you should know everything and have the knowledge, what some students stuggle with is applyling that knowledge especially with subjects like science,buisiness, geography, history, rs etc. The best thing you can do is pester you teachers like crazy and get them to give you feedback on mocks and past papers that you complete. They might not like you for a bit but deep down they'll like your taking the initiative to do this and be more inclined to help you.
