So, I’m a student in Y10 studying for GCSE.
I have quite a bit of coursework to finish for Business Studies and Spanish. Should I complete my coursework in Y10 whilst I have the time and opportunity- or should I wait until Y11?
I’m unsure as we are kind of just told to do it and are set time limits but then the time limits are just forgotten about. So it doesn’t really get done.
Any advice would be much appreciated but especially from GCSE students and onwards
Thank you! X

If you can do it, then I don't see why not.

There isn't any coursework for GCSE Spanish or Business Studies in England. Where are you?

Definitely do it as you go along. You wouldn’t want work to pile up towards the end. You can always do it during summer or other holidays if you don’t have time during term time

I am in England, I have coursework for business studies and the ‘coursework’ for Spanish is writing up around 50 paragraphs in preparation for my speaking exam.

There is no coursework (NEA) for Business. The old specification had some but the new one does not https://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/busi...on-at-a-glance

ohh right i can only speak for Spanish I have just done my gcses and got a 7 for spanish (i still don't understand how) i did AQA too and remember preparing for speaking it was such a pain writing it then getting it checked and having to improve and rewrite it , but in that case i think it is a good idea to get it done earlier on as you'd have plenty of time to memorise it before your exam, i got my questions ans answers sorted and had a week to memorise which trust me wasn't enough to memorise like 20 questions i could've done a lot better if i had more time bcoz i'd forgotten most of it

I'm in year 11 and i'm doing igcse. I have coursework due tomorrow (not even joking) which I haven't completed because I should've done it in year 10. (And I'm currently super stressed out because I have to finish and I can't bring myself to do it). Trust me, if you are aiming for high grades then you want to get your coursework out of the way from the start (not rushing it but doing good quality pieces). If you do it this way, in Year 11 you can focus more on practicing for the exams and not on finishing your coursework and you can go back and change things you don't like instead of having to write things from scratch. So in the end it will be a combination of both years and getting help/feedback from outside (to make it better) so that you aren't rushed when the deadlines come.

Wow! Well done on your grade 7, that’s amazing. In my school we have to do the whole speaking, listening, reading and writing, but I would say it’s not awful as all the vocab kind of goes hand-in-hand with each other, and vocab is the key to success in GCSE Spanish, according to my teacher😂

Thank you so much for this! It’s really useful to know what to do because we are just told to do the work and not always checked up on.
Thank you! I’ll start with my coursework ASAP I guess!😂

thanks and I remember the 4 different exams it was awful, but yep vocab is the best and learning vocab that you can apply to everything like connectives, opinion phrases etc. I found speaking the easiest because we got to prepare for it. Also because the speaking exam is first, whatever questions&answers we memorised for that we were able to use for all the other exams ie writing and it made life a whole lot easier..

100% if you have the time. An hour or two every couple of days is enough to put a significant dent in - plus you don't want that burden or overload when you suddenly get a final deadline.

Yeah I completely get what you mean, we did a set of speaking mocks on a certain topic in Y9 and I got full marks! I just used those answers in my writing, or something similar, and managed to get a grade 9 for that also, thank god for the speaking exam😂
