lmaooo I rate that the Asian parents part hahaha. basically all u gotta do is find your weak spots from every subject and mainly focus on them cause whats the point spending time on things you already know? make a list from each subject of the things you find hard, then dedicate them each to a day. make sure youre realistic, its good to be ambitious but you gotta know your limits. tick things off as you learn them, but remember to take breaks in between everything.
hope this helped x

make a routine like wake up at 7 revise two hours of this subject than 2 hours of this and each day try your best to finish all the work you set yourself to do, if you feel anxious for the exam you probably have not done enough yet so stop what your doing then work. Delete all distractions more effort it takes you to play ps4 or something less likely you'll do it. If you want motivation think about the regret you would get if you failed you GCSE's on results day imagine if that happened and imagine if you got god grades, that should get you started.

sameeee Im getting 5's in maths chem and physics cause they all involve maths I cbaaaaaaaa. all 3 sciences are compulsory for us and we gotta take 4 options. why's rs compulsory for you lot? a language used to be compulsory for us but they ended u bringing the average grade from our school down to a 7 instead of an 8, so we don't have to anymore. I sweae down , my school only care about grades. my best subject is drama I love performinggggg

ahh all 3 compulsory? Thats unfair, u should be able to chose if u wanna do combined or triple. We have 3 options luckily, and extra languages are available if anyone wants. Our schools really multicultural and most people belong to some kind of religion(specially christianity and islam) so thats why, but trust me everyones failing it, like even me im a muslim and i dropped to a 5 from the 8s i used to get before SAME they care about grades but dont provide proper teachers, like honestly the main reason why im so bad at maths is bcoz i havent had good teachers. Oh drama?Thats niceee, i remeber drama lessons used to be really fun. People in my year have finished their drama gcse like last month, how lucky they got one less subject to worry about. Have u done urs??
