    For those of you that have completed them, which of the exams were the toughest to sit or which ones you would have revised more if you had the chance?

    personally I would have revised for all of them more, I didn't take the seriously and didn't put any effort in until it was too late, I even wasted time during Study leave like an idiot. But looking back personally the English exams were worst for me as I just am not good at Lit or Language.

    I'd say that the ones people normally assume are easy and don't revise for are usually the ones they don't do as well in. Different people have different strengths and weaknesses just don't fall in to the trap of not revising especially since the new GCSE content is more rigorous than the old GCSE content.

    History and English were the hardest to revise for, I hate essay writing and it’s my number one weakness. Latin literature was tough to revise for as we have to learn word for word 2 translations with annotations.

    It is still ongoing in my school but I will generally go in and study in the 6th Form study during it and may take the occasional day studying at home, as I did at AS because I massively procrastinated during gcses like I read books to avoid studying and such.

    anyway start studying early it should pay off, if you start studying too late it is possible you will burn out

    I would say PE was the hardest. You know all the science and maths they were p*** but just couldn't memorise all the excersie names. I would concentrate all the revision on PE

    For me english language required the least revision vecause tbh there is not much to revise. You just have to manipulate the mark scheme. I wish i revised more for my history exams because they're super knowledge based.
