    • Thread Starter

    im also doing history

    Are your teachers aware of how behind you are?

    For maths, I recommend mathsgenie. Super great videos which explain the mathematical concepts in a way that's fool-proof and easy to understand.

    For English, take a look at a YouTube channel named MrBruff. He's super helpful, especially if you're on the AQA scheme!

    For science, I recommend picking up the CGP revision guide relevant to your course (double or triple) as well as the correct exam board's edition. I would also suggest taking a look at Freesciencelessons on YouTube.

    For history there are a few textbooks available. I have the CGP one for my exam board (EdExcel) and it's good, really concise, however my teacher is slightly concerned that it won't have the level of detail needed to get the grade 8s and 9s. If you're just interested in passing, though, I'd definitely recommend picking that up.

    Any reason for you skipping so much school, by the way? Just out of interest.

    PS: I think this goes without saying, but just in case, you're going to have to put the effort in outside of lessons and making sure you're attendance is up. If you do all that, you'll do well Best of luck, and if you need any further advice, please feel free to ask me.
