This might sound harsh but it’s unrealistic to expect all or most of your grades to improve to a 9 if your GCSEs are next month. But definitely focus on a few subjects especially, with hard work I’m sure you’ll see results. I can help with French, German, or music if you’re doing any of them, send me specific questions

Honestly I wouldn’t recommend learning answers off by heart. You’ll be screwed if you have a mind blank, and the questions they ask in the exam tend to be slightly different to ones you learnt
E.g. In my French oral I got asked “what did you do yesterday for the environment” — combines two questions/topics so there’s no way I would have prepared for that
Instead learn a few set phrases and key terms for each topic that you’ve learnt about
Revise verb forms and conjunctions etc. so that if you get asked a question you hadn’t thought about you can answer spontaneously
Good luck though
Also I’m doing Cambridge igcse so idk if our topics are similar to yours

yes but my speaking is the only thing thats going to help me as i'm horrendous at everything else, therefore I kinda HAVE to memorise it all, p.s. I got that question too and literally all i could think of was 'hier j'ai recyclé avec ma soeur parce que c'est bon pour l'environnement', ffsss

Idk if you have to give a presentation in your oral (with your spec), if you do just make sure that’s really good and as long as possible, coz that means less questions asked about it

I did the Grade 9-1s last year when they first rolled them out for English Lang., English Lit. and Maths. Predicted Grade 7s for both Englishs, getting grade 6s in exams leading up to the GCSE. Proceeded to get 9s in both - teachers hype it up so much it really isn't that hard tbh.

Also got 8 in Maths despite being **** at it. Just relax and you'll do fine, its not rocket science

The only thing I can offer you is reassurance that the grade boundaries were lower than most expected last year.
