My tip is to make sure your prepared.
Make a list, discover your weak areas. Year 11 goes by fast so extra revision outside of lessons pay off. by figuring out what your weak areas are you'll be able to tackle them quicker.

And finally jut breath. Relax, you don't want to stress yourself too much.

Oh and a quick tip figure out your best revision method. Is it by colour coding etc.
You'll hear a lot of talk about how GCSE'S are the most important thing, but font let this put you off, enjoy it. All these things you do now sort of prepare you for a levels and uni.

  1. Don't stress yousefl too much but it's worth doing some revision, yes.
    Take maybe 3-5 hours a week - or maybe 2 afternoons - to maybe make flashcards or write down everything you remember from a topic without checking notes (you can also do diagrams and mindmaps). These are good revision methods and also save you time next year as you can use them as notes. Also, youtube has good revision channels and Seneca Learning is great for practising questions withouth too much pressure.

The new spec is a lot harder than you’d think, and you really need to be in the mindset for doing tougher exams than your used to. I reckon if you’ve done all the past papers and specimens for the new spec about two weeks to a month before your exams, you’ll be in the right mindset to smash them

Practice papers! You’ve got a lot more of them than we did last year so count yourself lucky. They’re vital for the harder new spec because the questioning is more important than the content- we had a lot of questions on things that weren’t specifically on the stuff we’d learnt but you had to have to use your knowledge to answer.

I can't reiterate enough practice papers.

Also, figure out what your learning style is. Some are visual learners (so mind maps will help), others are aural and some are kinetic (learn by doing).
