    I have taken my English language GCSE this year ( a year early) I was in set 1 in year 9 and achieved a grade 8 (a*). Honestly the best way to revise is doing practise questions and trying to mark them yourself using a mark scheme and improving it ☺️ good luck!

    It is hard but practise makes it much easier.

    My school is dodgy so the only subject we were set for was maths in years 9 and 10 and in year 11 we were sorted into foundation and higher classes but I was set 1 maths for years 9 and 10 and higher maths in year 11. To be honest, I never found it particularly difficult but if you are finding it hard, it doesn't mean you won't do well. Personally, I found history and physics the hardest but I got high A*s in both with a lot of hard work. If you work hard and do your best, you will come out with grades that reflect your effort.

    Sets don't matter much. What really matters is how much your willing to work. Then anyone can get As or A*s

    don't worry about sets, they don't mean anything. Just work hard to get the grades you want and you will get them. GCSE's aren't too difficult.
