    Literally. I am dying right now. I know I'm only in year 10 but I'm really worried about my cousin who's in year 11. I want to help him with his GCSE's to make my aunt and uncle proud. He's always got quite bad grades but as I've got 1 year left I want to help him with his year. Also I never see him so I want him to come to my 6th form.

    I've created a revision PowerPoint for him on most of his subjects but I don't know what to do for motivation to get him to revise them. All he does is play on his PS4 and Xbox 1. His teachers and parents have told him that if he doesn't start revising then he will fail and he always says he will but he never does. I'm doing this because my aunt and uncle asked me to help him. I just don't know what to do! He never bought any of his books and I'm really scared he will fail his GCSE's.

    Can someone help me think of ways to get him to revise and way that I can help him get at least 4 C's in his GCSE exams
    P.S. He got D's and F's in his mock and one B
Do you think parents should charge rent?
