Honestly if I get 4/5’s in my subjects I’ll be over the moon. Especially in geography and history

your right, but thats the thing I'm not walking out of my exams because I don't even walk in for some of them. Its not great having all my family who did really well in there exams like B's,A*s act really high grades where as I'm predicted less then a D and less then a level 1 pass for my two Btec subjects
Ye. When other family members do better, parents can sometimes fail to acknowledge our own achievements.I hope you do well in your exams

Just wanted to give everyone some advice. I am in year 13 doing my A-levels this summer. GCSE's are not the be all and end all of what you do with your lives. Grades only get you so far in life . I applied for a competitive course which you need straight A's for i did not get any A's at GCSE or A level and have an offer to do veterinary medicine next year. i know how stressful it feels but trust me after the first exam it gets so much easier the exams are the easiest part in my opinion. If you need any advice dont hesitate to ask me but honestly dont stress about them they are not worth sleepless nights. But you are all going to do great wish you all luck i will be joining you too with my horrendous A levels ahah x

Haha, I think this is needed to be honest. I personally have not started revision (yes I know I should) but I am doing ok, a 6, 5 5's and 2 4's which doesnt impact me so much. Only problem is (and this is a big one) I missed the whole of Y10 Maths due to a teacher trainee who was VERY bad at english. It is one of my 2 grade 4's and I need it a 6 lmao. MathsWatch isnt a favourite of mine so for now I am slowly gripping understanding in lesson - because I have no idea how to begin here - can't even find a spec list!

Hey I’ve made a chat for year 11’s to just say how they are finding and coping with gcses because I just want others experiences so I don’t feel so alone. Get your worried off your chests so we can all relate and get through this together😂😢😫

Isn’t it mad that it only feels like year 11 started last month and gcses start 3 weeks after half term😫

I done GCSE’s two years ago and got 8A**-A. You should study for each subject specifically and do practice papers for all the sciences. There’s not that much stress. Take it as a fun process. The day the GCSEs were finished for me, it felt like I had no purpose and my life felt completely empty. Main message: EMBRACE THE CHALLENGE!

1 month today guys, 1 month till our first exam😭. But 2 months today until our last! (For me anyways). These next two months are going to be verrrryyyy eventful. Do you think the leading up to exams now will be quick or agonisingly slow due to all the boring revision? I’ve found my Easter holiday has gone pretty fast so far as I’ve been revising for most of it. My parents forced me to go outside with them today to get me away. I spend hours and hours but I just feel like nothing is going in and that I’m doing it wrong. I’ve got notes for all of biology, chemistry and only physics paper2. One module of history, one module of music and nothing of English. Romeo and Juliet will be the death of me. It gets to the point where I question who is even speaking English, Shakespeare or me?😂😭😭
How are you guys revising for English lit? I really need help for that

My maths teacher is forcing me to take higher maths and I’m only scraping 5s and I’m terrified this maths higher this year will be the hardest ever (as teachers said as we r getting comfortable with new spec they are making it harder) and then I would fail maths! When I could have just taken foundation. I have frnech speaking on 2nd of May. I just can’t take all this pressureee😫

My family are saying I look ill... lol
Is anyone else revising LOADS and feeling like they're still not doing enough / not processing the information?!?! I know you're meant to break it into chunks but I've tried that and it just makes me more stressed...
My parents are saying I look ill too. They see me and keep saying “are you okay you look really pasty, give yourself a break” and I’m like wow thanks for the confidence booster😂😭 they forced me to go outside today with them coz they r worried about me😂😬

Honestly I'm going insane and I can't handle all of the pressure, the thing I struggle with the most is sitting in my exam hall; as soon as I get in there and sat down thats it I'm having fully blown out panic attacks and can't complete me exams. This is scaring me so much for May because the next two years of my life depend on my grades.
I can’t handle the pressure either. I’ve started to break out in spots (I never get them normally ) and my eyebags are literally so dark I’m literally wondering if I’m changing race from the eyes downwards 😂 and yeah I know it’s so stressfull. I hate it coz I’m worried as it is and then my tummy starts wanted to imitate the sound of a whale in the complete silent exam hall like no thankyouuu

I got a 9 in maths two years ago. The grade boundaries are extremely low for the higher paper. Just do everything in your study guide and you should get atleast a 6. Do all the maths practice papers aswell. Also there’s no such thing as ‘this year it will be hard’. Because if it was harder, the grade boundaries would be lower so it’s the exact same chance to get the grade you deserve

I hated the poetry part. I think u need a basic understanding of all the poems but only need to memorise 3-4 of them as a lot of them are very similar and u can use the 3-4 which you know well, to compare with the poem in the paper which they choose
