    Honestly just memorise 6 markers that's what I do and usually get 6. 3 points for and against, unless it's a question like nuclear war is wrong - you may have more points for agree than disagree. Same types of questions will come up, so just keep memorising. I'm writing notes for Ethics hoping to start revising in Easter. Sorry I can't give more advice! My mocks for ethics had quotes from Anglican Church and priests and stuff, which also gets marks apart from biblical quotes so maybe try that if it's easier to remember as those quotes are like convo quotes. Good luck! Xx
    Wow, that's really great advice. Thank you Nish! Hope your GCSEs go really well for you and you get the grades you want.

    Hello! What I am currently doing are:
    IGCSE English as a First Language (Cambridge)
    IGCSE English Literature (Cambridge)
    IGCSE Mathematics A (Edexcel)
    GCSE Biology (Edexcel)
    GCSE Chemistry (Edexcel)
    GCSE Physics (Edexcel)
    GCSE Art and Design (Edexcel)
    GCSE Media Studies (AQA)
    IGCSE Enterprise (Cambridge)
    IGCSE Arabic as a First Language (Cambridge)

    For biology, I noticed that there were no six markers on B3 T2, most of the topics were on topic 3. Thus, I predict that the six markers this time might either be rhythms (mostly photoperiodicity), courting or learned behaviour.

    I remember we are doing the 15 poems from 'Songs of Ourselves Volume 1, Part 5'. You can find the poems in the spec.

    For prose, I am doing Spies, whilst i'm doing An Inspector Calls for drama.

    Honestly, I do not have any gut feeling about the math exam, i'm just like, "I will revise and pray for mercy on the test."

    Is anyone doing OCR maths instead of Edexcel and AQA? It doesn't seem as though anyone is doing this exam board other than my school.

    Problem is that the teaching ive recieved hasnt been that great. And I just really want to get an understanding of my chances at achieving a grade 7 as on the old spec I was predicted an A but now I have no idea whether im the equivalent of a grade C or a grade A.
