    Hi all, I’m new here. Apologies in advance if I’ve got anything muddled up.

    I’m a private candidate, taking the Re-sit GCSEs (English Language and Math, also my first time taking any GCSEs). I haven’t got much time left, and I’ve still got a lot of revision to get through. I’m not so great at English as I am maths, is there anything to look out for when taking the English language (AQA) exam? Or anything that will get some higher marks?

    Thank you ☺️

    Just get yourself a couple of revision books.

    Try Mr Bruff as he also has videos.

    I’ve got the revision books, some practice papers but thank you for the videos, they will help.
    I got mixed up between my maths and English. Thankfully my English is AQA, I’ll change it now ☺️
