    Grow Your Grades- GCSE Success!

    Hii! I'm starting a new GYG thread as I had a lot of stuff going on last year so I wanted to start another one to motivate myself to achieve my target grades, if not more. I started Y11 this September and I got my results for some GCSEs that I did last year: Russian (A*) and Thinking and Reasoning Skills (Merit).

    Predicted Grades:
    English Language (AQA)- 9
    English Literature (AQA)- 9
    Physics (OCR)- 8
    Chemistry (OCR)- 8
    Biology (OCR)- 8
    Maths (Edexcel)- 8
    Geography (AQA)- 9
    Spanish (AQA)- 8
    History (AQA)- 8

    I hope you enjoy the blog

    I've never heard of anyone doing OCR science before (coming from an AQAer), how are you finding it? And, wow, your predicted grades are so high! You seem so motivated and I'm sure you'll get them if you work for them. The best of luck for this year!

    The sciences are generally the subjects that I struggle with the most so they are the subjects that i need to focus most on but other than that, they’re going somewhat decently! How are you finding AQA science? I’ve heard that AQA have the hardest spec so good luck and thank you for the support! Xx

    Yeah, same, I’ve definitely got a lot of work to do this year for science. I dont know what the other specs entail, but I find AQA science pretty hard, though I do find science in general quite hard. There’s just so much to learn, and half the time I don’t even know what’s going on in physics ngl

    Thanks, i've been to a sixthform open evening and i remember one of the science teachers saying ocr, especially ocr gateway, is one of the more detailed specifications. I think that although there is so much content there are links between units, especially in biology, so its not half bad. But History and geography are another matter is just page after page, sometimes i don't even have time to actually take in the content and enjoy it, i just have to keep memorising. How are you revising, and dealing with the content?

    I’ve honestly been a mess recently with keeping up with all the content and making all of my revision materials. I really regret not making revision notes as I went along last year so I have to catch up on it all this year but I know that’s all my fault so I can’t exactly moan about it ahaha. I know what you mean about not being able to enjoy the content, since the middle of last year I’ve felt as though I just need to get everything done rather than actually think properly about what I’m doing if that makes any sense xx

    Hii anon, a grade 8 is still amazing but I understand when you say you’re slightly disappointed by it cos I’m the exact same when it comes to things like this. I’m glad to hear that you don’t sound as overwhelmed as I am at the moment ahaha. Hope you get the grades that you wanted for maths and the sciences
