Hi, I am currently in yr 10 and will be doing my first mocks in the beginning of May.
So far, my GCSE course has consisted mostly of extreme stress (leading to demotivation) and way too much time spent revising using ineffective stratagies.
I have just about had enough of pushing my mental health to the breaking point, and figured that something has to change. I would really appreciate any tips for effective revision/how to achieve grade 8s and 9s/ ways to turn your GCSEs around and achieve the grades you really want.
Personally, I naturally enjoy learning and really want to do well- the only thing that has been getting me down is stress and fear of being a failure.
To give you a bit of background, here are a list of exam boards and target grades for each subject:
English lit, AQA, target 9
English lang, AQA, target 9
Maths, edexcel higher, target 9
Sciece, AQA triple science, target 8
Geography, AQA, target 9
German, AQA higher, target 9
RS: Catholic Christianity, Islam & philosophy/ ethics, Edexcel A, target 9
Art, AQA fine art, target 9
