    Hi there

    The thread here (and the ones linked in this) may be of use to you! Just out of curiosity, what subjects do you take?

    Oki doki! Well, I think if you take a look on the thread I linked earlier, that might point you in the right direction as it's covered most of those subjects in the past.


    But if it doesn't help completely, or you need more detail, just give me a shout and I'll try and help where I can

    I did GCSE a couple of years ago now, so my memory's a bit rusty, but I think I got all A*s except 2 which were an A and B. I took English Lit/Lang, Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, History, Geography, German and ICT

    Thank you My biggest tip would be to start early and be consistent. Even if you only do half an hour to begin with; do half an hour everyday. Keep recapping topics and don't just work your way through a list of topics - prioritise and work to a time limit.

    Well done on your mocks! Those are fantastic! :yes:

    Thank you I mainly used flashcards to revise. I literally made the entire CGP revision books for all three sciences into flashcards (so we're talking thousands) and just keep going over and over them. IN terms of hours, it's hard to say because I never really sat there and just focused on GCSEs, I would be doing a couple of things or chopping and changing.Though when I did look at the time i spent at my desk it could be around 8 hours at weekends - but bear in mind this isn't constant study.

    In a sense I regret doing it like I did, because I could have condensed the same amount of work into maybe 3 or 4 hours maximum, but as I didn't have many other interests (or much of a social life) I just took it slow and steady. It paid off in the end though. I also started early as I mentioned above. I was recapping GCSE work back in Year 9/10 every night, so it was less of a shock when the exams arrived.

    I kept a Grow Your Grades blog on my GCSE journey and if you want to take a look, you can do - it's here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=3897511

    It might give you a better idea of how I structured my revision/study


    Any questions though, just ask
