Preparing for GCSEs in year 10 Watch
Tips from me are basically read over what u have done in lesson that day at school so u understand it better. Just go over ur notes from class and read over the chapter in ur skl guide book or any other revision guide u have. (This will probably take u 10-15mins max for each subject uve had that day at skl) If u don’t understand then go ask a teacher or look online but make sure u understand it straight away (coz I’m teaching myself things my teachers failed to teach me since the past 2 years). Go on websites like get revising, BBC Bitesize, cliff notes and shmoop for English, and Kerboodle (if ur skl pays for that), mathswatch, maths genie, Corbett maths, on YouTube there’s freesciencelessons and mygcse, Quizlet
Also make flash cards everyday after skl for the things u learnt so if u do like a bit of a chapter from biology in skl that day make notes or flash cards when u get home when it’s fresh in ur mind so u don’t have to do it b4 ur exams
Hopefully that’s helped u but basically learn the content as u go along coz then u don’t have to learn it all a few weeks b4 ur exams like I am right now 😒
First of all, I would really like it if people didn't say things such as "Oh, that's way too early to revise for GCSEs" or "GCSEs aren't that important". They're important to me and I want to do well in them, which is why I'm revising early on. I'm not looking to do hours of revision everyday, but does anyone have any tips on how I should revise and how much I should revise? Also, are there any websites or apps out there that are good for GCSE preparation?
Get revision guides and use them. It's time to start getting great at maths, if you're not too confident there. You'll be told to do past papers, make sure it's useful. If you approach it wrong, you'll find them useful. You should focus on key phrases. To get top grades, you need to have a deeper insight on patterns in the mark scheme. There are certain key words and phrasing structure. Practice papers should be done too early, they should be late stage and use as a means to find stuff you don't know and you need to actively use that to improve.
