In theory, you could self study using revision guides etc. But also bear in mind resources such as exam specifications, YouTube and sites such as Gojomo and Memrise

Which ones are you hoping to take? Most colleges offer free courses for math, English and combined science.

If your determined to go it alone then check out past GCSE papers online so as you get a feel for where you should be heading. Remember though they only cover part of the curriculum. There's quite a large subject area for all three which might be covered in any exam!

Good luck.

Jon

No pain, no gain.
Therefore you need to make sacrifices. Don't waste your time, remember it will all be worth it in the end.

Yeah they're very limited in what they offer. Though I do believe my local college also offered physcology at gcse level.

Whatever you decide to do good luck doing it..

I dropped out from Year 11 due to mental health issues (just got my results back, did pretty well!) and I fully recommend GCSEpods, if they're available to you. They're very precise and go through each topic in the curriculum.

do mindmaps, past papers, test yourself. Are you a visual learner? There's fantastic videos on YouTube that can really help, especially with science. Make a list of all the topics you need to do, then as you do them, tick them off and try to make a revision worksheet at the end. It'll really help when you come back to it.

Remember, you can do this!
