    Maths, English, triple science, art, geography, business, and French
    When revising maths, I looked up the topics for non-calculator and calculator. Then I wrote them all done, and spent time going through them. I wrote out examples, then did exam question continuously till I understood the topic. I did exam papers.

    To revise triple science, make sure you understand the basics first, go through old books. I bought the CGP books, as the help and make it fun. Here is a link to a science YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqb...Xw9Il7sBVG3_bw
    It is also good to find the specification, so you know wether you are revising the right things and tick off each point, when you have learnt them. It may good to right down equations, as there are many for physics and put them on your wall. I do master mind maps.

    To revise English, I use Mr Bruff on youtube, he is absolutely amazing. He has went through all the english papers, analysed all the poems and much more. He helped me go from a 3 to an 8.

    To revise French, make sure you know the grammar and vocabulary thoroughly. I would suggest testing yourself, just doing writting at home and see how you do. I would watch loads of shows in french, with english subtitles, so you are able to recognise words. Then when you get better, you may not need subtitles.

    For geography, make sure you know the case studies inside out and with the facts. Categorise notes, keep them concise and short, so that when you look at them you are able to elaborate on them.

    For business, go through the specification and note everything down, this helps you to gain an understanding of the topics.

    I can't really help you with GCSE art, as I do not do it. The best advice I have is to do papers for everything, just to get the timing right. As for English literature paper 2, you have a lot to do, in a short amount of time, so you might want to perfect the timings. For me I write down the time I started a question and when I should finish, depending on the marks, this works for me.
