If you fail you'll have to retake them in the June the NEXT year during a levels or whatever else you're doing if you want to have passed. And imagine the disappointment of failing or getting just a C. And anyway.. think of it differently, it's not school work it's learning.. you're literally learning a language, isn't that cool? (not sure if changing the point of it help, but liking what you're doing sometimes helps) ..and btw. You do not want to have to retake these while you're doing A levels.. a levels are bad enough on their own xD

Just do your homework and learn what you have to learn .
You can start worrying about your GCSE's once in year 10 . You still have loads of time .

I wish I would have worked harder at GCSE so that it would be reasonable to apply to Oxbridge. Whether you think you want to go there or not doesn't really matter, you will change your mind so many times before actually applying - the point is you want the option to be able to go to any university or get ant job you want. Good grades are crucial to both of those. You can't get good GCSE grades without a basic understanding of the subjects. You get that from the early years of high school.
Work hard so you can do anything you want to in the future.

Thanks guys! I know that i still do have a lot of time but I think it's better to start revising and studying early on so I get better grades. I want to go to a good uni and I 100% agree that working hard will get me there. I'll definitely try the apps; thanks a lot for the recommendations!

What I have learned in my three years of GCSEs:

1) Pay more attention in class and you won't need as much time to revise.

2) The above + 15 minutes per subject each day WORKS

3) You can take ONE day off each week

4) When you aren't revising, relax (all work and no play causes a lot of stress)

Also:

1) If you do take the Duolingo route: don't do more than two lessons on that a day because your mind won't absorb it.

2) Past papers are a must, try to do one full question a week.

3) Take breaks between subjects, if you need to.

4) Leave the gadgets alone, until studying is done.

Quizlet is an amazing way to help you learn the vocabulary of another language, it's a website but is also an app you can get on your phone. It has built in features such as memory games ect, and you can make your own study sets so you're learning what you want to learn. You can also share your sets around with your friends to use. You don't need wifi for it either so when you're walking to school or something you can spend 5 minutes on the app whilst you're walking. It's a really good app!
