Ok so I have gcses in less than 2 months and I’m so stressed out!!!!😓
I’ve been revising but I can’t memorise anything😕I’ve just done my second set of mocks and I think I’ve failed maths and English...Again. I got a 3 in both my English language and maths mocks a few months ago. I’ve been revising a lot since then but I don’t think I’ve improved at all!
How do people revise?
What do I do if I fail all my gcses?🤔😕

start with a positive mindset!! do as much as you can, just focus on the present things dont always go downhill, they do get better evetually. you are as capable as anyone else, do not lose hope!! Something that works for me is making flashcards and doing exam question so just make sure you practice as much as you can, also try using quizlet, its really good and helpful for revision, im pretty sure it does all of the subjects xx

I revise by turning every line of notes into a question and writing it on a flash card e.g:

A rain gauge has a sharp rim to measure from a precise area

Goes to:

Q: Why does a rain gauge have a sharp rim?
A: to measure from a precise area.

That way you are learning by active recall and not just re reading notes.
Past papers are also helpful because they help you identify gaps in your knowledge.

Hi,

Here is some advice I could have for you:

1) Talk to your teachers, that honestly helped me go up 2 grades from February to May in English lit, because they can help you if they know you’re going to try and put the time into revising. You may think you’re being annoying but they won’t mind, it’s their job to help you and so if you just ask for the help they should be happy to give you any help you need.

2) PRACTICE PAPERS - best form of revision there is, either exam style questions or full papers, there’s loads for English language in particular on google and worst comes to the worst just take the first page of a book and then practice the structure question or a language question or whatever you find hardest. Do them in timed conditions though, as then you can improve and get better at the exam.

3) for English language - READ STUFF. Books, news articles whatever you want really a mix of stuff is good and it will improve your vocabulary and how well you write which can often get you a good few extra marks

Finally, don’t panic! GCSEs aren’t fun, they’re really stressful but you’ll be fine honestly. If you fail it’s not the end of the world, your college/6th form will let you resit. Persevering with your revision though will pay off, just trust me on this......

Hope this helps xx

Make flash cards, do LOADS of past papers, and write practise essays. If you don’t have time to write the actual essay, do a detailed plan and tick off the points using the mark sceme. Quiz yourself using the flashcards and when you do past papers, f you get anything wrong, add that question to your flashcards so you don’t get it wrong again.
