Hello, I've seen many students using these form of posts in order to motivate themselves and to keep a track of improvement. Subsequently, I will be using this thread for the same reasons!

Should anyone want to contribute revision tips or anything, that will obviously be appreciated.

My targets for GCSEs are:

English Literature: 7
English Language: 7
Mathematics: 8
Double Science IGCSE: AA
Religious Studies: A
History: A
Business Studies: A
Graphics: B
Resistant Materials: A

Thus:
1A*, 8As, 1B

In my mocks (February-Early March), I did better than expected, yet I believe that I can do better! My results were:

English Literature: 8 (Think the teacher was too lenient)
English Language: 7
Mathematics: 8
Double Science IGCSE: AA
Religious Studies: A*
History: A
Business Studies: A
Graphics: B
Resistant Materials: B

Thus:
3A*s, 5As, 2Bs

Moreover, I believe that I can achieve higher than my original targets for most subjects. These targets are somewhat realistic, yet I'd obviously prefer 10A*s but that's not going to happen I'd be over the moon if I received the grades:

English Literature: 8
English Language: 7
Mathematics: 8
Double Science IGCSE: A*A
Religious Studies: A*
History: A
Business Studies: A*
Graphics: A
Resistant Materials: A*

This thread will be my mission and journey to these grades! For A-Levels, I intend to take Mathematics, Economics as well as Politics.

I believe that the subjects that I need to revise the most are the sciences, english as well as history!

Thanks for reading,

I believe that some coursework has let me down, yet I will of course work as hard as I can in order to achieve so highly! By any chance, do you have any tips for revision?

This morning I created flash cards for all Forces topics (Physics), Fundamental Ideas of Chemistry as well as Crimes and their punishments in Britain across time. Additionally, I completed a maths past paper. For the rest of the evening, I plan to analyse a poem from my anthology, write flash cards with quotes from all 15 poems as well as complete and mark it.

Have a good evening all!

For that I am lucky, however, my first exam is in 30 days and I feel very unprepared!
