Hey mayu123
I'm doing AQA English Language gcse and I'm in year 10.
To revise I'd make sure you know the differences between language, structure and form (literally half my class muddled them up and lost a lot of marks)
Watch some Mr Bruff videos on YouTube? We've only covered paper 1 section A but his info on the questions helped me a lot in my mock test last term.
I guess read books as well. Just pick up a book, open it to a random page, read the page and analyse how the writer has use structure/language etc to make the reader feel however they feel.
Are you doing AQA literature? I need help when it comes to the whole novels (Macbeth etc) I completely fail at making original comments!

For science we're being tested on what we learnt last year so I've been revising because I didn't really put in that much effort taking notes last year so I will fail if I don't revise. For my exams in June I will probably begin revising after I get my report in May so I know what I need to work on.

Hi c: I'm in year 11 and I struggle with paper 2 as well haha. Anyway, it depends which exam board you're taking but for us (AQA) paper 2 is on the writer's viewpoints and perspectives. The first question is circle four statements that are true/find four statements in the text and it's worth four marks. The second question is worth eight marks and you have to compare viewpoints between the two sources - don't analyse language at all. The third question is focusing on one source and is language analysis, it's worth twelve marks. The fourth question is comparing viewpoints based on something else in the text and is worth sixteen marks - i'm not so sure on this question but I think you can do some analysis and look for a change in perspective in the text. For question five you have to write a broadsheet newspaper article and it's worth 40 marks.

Hope this helps! x
