    how do you keep up with gcses
    - Set an hour or two aside every night to do the homework and look over what you did in that day/week. Study in chunks of 25 min, 5 min break and so on. See what works for you e.g. making flashcards, notes, posters or simply reading the page and remembering content.
    - If you can't fit an hour a night then try make up during the weekend or stay at school/library for an hour to catch up
    - Does your school offer sam learning, mathswatch, chemsheets etc? There are so many online resources and youtube which can help (e.g. examsolutions for maths, gcse science videos, beebusinessbee and tutor2you for business). Also use any CD which is attached to the book to complement your learning
    - PRACTICE! Past papers will be a huge help, look at mark schemes, do papers under timed conditions, see the examiners report for areas to focus on. Feedback from your teachers also help
    - CGP Guides = life savers. If you are short for time, grab a cgp guide on which subject you are struggling on. These are useful for humanities subjects and english where you have to learn facts or develop your writing technique. Also great for sciences due to the practice questions
    - Most importantly, don't be afraid to ask friends/teachers for help and try not to stress- you will be fine!
    If you need any help, feel free to message
    Best of luckk!
