I'm currently at year 10 and I will do my Cambridge IGCSE at the end of year 11, I'm doing Igcse physics, chemistry, biology, maths, English Language, Geography and ICT. What are the best books to study from and what can I do to help achieve A* in every subject apart from memorizing the textbook and answering past papers.

Are the books published by Cambridge university press better than others and where can I find past papers by topic(speciously for geography).

Are the case studies for geography a lot? (I'm thinking of dropping geography maybe).

i heard Cambridge books are harder bec they want you to study higher than the exam standards and stuff// oxford is good too and any books that says "endorsed by cambridge inter assessment" is good enuff

i plan to drop additional math and physics, and replace it with drama igcse, & arts and design igcse . I realised that there was no point for me to take the subject as IGCSE&similar exams are used for a person's future goals and plans, and my future had nothing to do with add maths and physics needed. i realised that i had been holding on to these 2 subjects still, for the wrong reasons: 1) since the beginning of when I chose my subjects, I've never dropped any of them and just kept adding more subjects. I was lowkey afraid to drop any because I was afraid that if I told my friends or teachers that I dropped a subject, they would think I'm not smart or don't really trust me enough to support me for my igcses (they're my only support because my mom doesn't really support it personally, she doesnt rlly understand the concept anyway, she just keeps saying that she is waiting for me to finish my IGCSE so smth smth money work smth smth. so yeah, i didnt want to lose my support from my teacher and friends.. so I kept holding on until now. I realised that my friends won't really mind anyway because they are my subjects and its not like i change my subject taking once a week. this is my first time and theres no harm. I felt alot of pressure and unnecessary stress from having to carry the subjects i didn't really want to take. so now im dropping them, I feel an immense weight lift off my chest (:. I am giving myself some days to think about my decision and confirm what I want. also, considering to drop either business or accounting. So, if i drop accounting I'll take business. If I take accounting, I'll drop business. still don't know thoughh and I gotta get help from my past school teachers. (im self studying/homeschooling with a tuition teacher coming over to my hse to teach me now)

oh yeah! and I'm considering on taking coordinated science instead of pure sciences, or just chemistry and biology without physics

[Hey there!
I have the choice of taking my gcse's early, like taking them at the end of this year (year 10) , i can take chemistry , physics ,and maths .
Which are subjects i wish to take for AS level.
Do you think i should take (gcse: chem, phy, and math) early and at the end of year 10, then do AS chemistry physics and maths at year 11 with the rest of my gcse subjects, or wait and do all my gcse subjects at the end of year 11 , then do my AS level at year 12 . Please reply soon

+ Do you know if i plan to study in America do i need to do AS level and A level or just AS , because i heared for America i only need to do AS level with my gcse's, i plan to go to UCLA.
Thanks.
