This thread is for the year 10s

My GCSE results

English lit - 9
English lang - 9
Maths - 9
Biology-A*
Chemistry- A*
Physics- A*
German - A*
History - A*
D.T - A*
Geography - A*
Religious Studies - A*
IGCSE/Further Maths level 2 - A* with a distinction

Maths

To get a 9 (quickly learn all the theory- the easy part) and do a ton of past papers. Ask your school teacher if you can have some access to some of the 9-1 papers.


English

For English lang, it is practically down to you. Write a lot of creative writing essays and ensure that it is marked by one of your teachers (if they are bothered). You can dm me one of your creative writing/story essays if you want...and I can mark it for you.

But for poetry...type on the internet Charge of the light brigade (any poems etc) and then WORDPRESS...I repeat WORDPRESS.
(https://madameanglaise.wordpress.com...l ord-tennyson/). You get various analyses that are a lot nearer to a level 9 analysis.A lot better than the CGP ones. Don't try to memories the poems (waste of time). Memories 5 specific quotes for each poem during the summer as well. Don't burn out during the summer and have fun while you can. Starting early is the best thing you can do. Since you are looking at my thread...it shows that you want to do well and get that level 9! That is a good thing and shows that you really care about your grades (the first step to get a level 9).

For english lit...try to find other school's revision guides and use that. Dm me if you want some. During the summer, try to read the 3 books at least 3 times (I know this can be a lot for many here). This can really help you have a full grasp on the plot of the story.

Good luck! Hope you get the level 9 in English and maths!!! If you want to ask any questions...feel free to ask



To those who worry about their GCSE grades

GCSE and A-levels mean nothing when you get into Uni. Grades are just the basics tbh. What makes you an interesting person is your work experiences etc. My favourite quote is “Life is like a piano; the white keys represent happiness and the black show sadness. But as you go through life’s journey, remember that the black keys also create music.”
Life is practically a set of musical notes. Everyone has identical notes. You are born with the starting note. You die with the last note. But what defines you is how you play the musical notes. With colour or with sadness and worry?

Nothing but I guess not being bored when waiting for someone to respond when you are talking on a different thread? Not everyone is selfish lol..."you don't always have to gain anything as there are still some altruists left in this world ".

Nope, I do it all the time and I'm predicted AAB.
What's the latest you've been out on a school night and what is your conceptual idea of an exciting social life?

I guess parting all night? My idea of fun is doing activities such as camping (like DofE) with my friends. I barely play any games (haven't even touched fortnite yet)...just watch films so I practically have a lot of time to kill.

I don't want to sound arrogant but I am naturally gifted when it comes to memorizing/intelligence? I can memories things people will spend 3 hours looking at within an hour (semi-photographic memory I think?...if that exists).

Like I said "There should be a website online where you can buy past papers. I can email some of the past papers to you by dm (so private message me your email address). There is a website that I use called https://www.drfrostmaths.com/. It is a very very useful email. Get your brother to help you (if he is willing). To get a 9 (quikcily learn all the theory- the easy part) and do a ton of past papers. Ask your school teacher if you can have some access to some of the 9-1 papers."

To be good at maths...just do a ton of past papers...

Regarding english...

For English lang, it is practically down to you. Write a lot of creative writing essays and ensure that it is marked by one of your teachers (if they are bothered). You can dm me one of your creative writing/story essays if you want...and I can mark it for you. Also read this article..https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...rts-john-lewis . I love Charlie Brooker's sense of humor. If you can replicate his work into your own...guarantee a 9 in english.

Is poetry in english lit or lang? I forgot. But for poetry...type on the internet Charge of the light brigade (any poems etc) and then WORDPRESS...I repeat WORDPRESS.
(https://madameanglaise.wordpress.com...lord-tennyson/). You get various analyses that are a lot nearer to a level 9 analysis.

For english lit...try to find other school's revision guides and use that.

Good luck! Hope you get the level 9 in english and maths!!!

To everyone here...if you manage to find a silver bullet for every subject (a document or website which consequently puts you above the rest)...you will get that A*. The websites that says "use this website to get a level 9 or A*" frustrates me...those websites are practically scams. At the end it is down to you as a person...not how long you sit on your desk to revise...but what YOU will do and how YOU will spend your time wisely.
