I want to share my tips on how I got all 9s in my GCSEs.

Starting revision early
- most people start during the easter holidays, I started late February. A few more weeks of revision will build your confidence and mean that when exam season comes around, you will not need to spend late nights revising. Rather you will be able to fully recharge and be in the right state of mind early.

Focus Your Revision
- investing time into aspects you struggle to understand rather doing what you like and find easy. Seek discomfort, when revising.

How do I make flashcards more efficiently? I've been spending a long time putting glitter on them but unfortunately the derivative of my grades in my practice exams with respect to time appears not to be positive. Should I write some things on them as well? For example, I need to memorise the formula for area of a rectangle given the height and the base, but it just won't stick in my head. I've tried making it into a limerick but I can never remember it.

I've watched the UnJaded Jade video on how to make flashcards twelve times now, but that hasn't helped my grades go up. If I spend a few hours on your website looking at your GCSE results slip will it help me?

For English, the best practise for me was writing practise essays on potential essay titles for your exams. For your shakespeare texts: write essays based on either characters or themes (which haven't already come up in exams). For the poetry section, work on analysing on the spot or memorising 5 of your best analyses.

For English Language, writing some pieces of fiction or non-fiction based on previous titles in past papers is useful practise.

Check out my website, where I have uploaded english language and literature papers from my exams.
Just google "dream believe achieve naman"
and click on the "howtoget9s.com" button and go to the english page.

I have chemistry for OCR but during my revision I did AQA past papers and the content was extremely similar.

Once again check my revision website.

mate, if flashcards are useless then try something else! Watching Jades' videos or spending a whole evening on her website won't make the difference. There are different ways to learn stuff! Flashcards are not the only thing. You seem to be one of those students who want everything ready (just assuming). She used HER METHODS to get all 9s however, it doesn't mean that her method will fit into YOUR methods! (iykwim)

You need to be able to find something that works for you. You could visit her website and find something useful or not. If you are willing to pay go ahead but her flashcards won't guarantee all 9s

Thank you! Can I ask you how did you deal with the calculation questions? For example bond energy/moles/concentration etc

First and foremost, understand how your equations work and then memorise them. Second of all, adopt a clear and systematic layout. For each chemical involved, label what you already know about the quesion and then based on what you know. Make sure your units match the units required in the equation. Try this with some practise questions and keep me informed.

Thanks.
1) I got 8s in English Language and Literature, 6 in Religious Studies, 9s in everything else.
2) I started revising late feburary before some of my teachers had even finished the syllabus.
3) During half terms, I did around 5 hours a day of which I got 4 hours in before 1'o clock. Morning is optimum revision time.
I will upload a copy of my revision table on my website.
This can be found by googling " dream believe achieve naman"
