My history teacher said at the start of GCSE’s at parents evening that I remind her of someone who gets a 6. I got a 9. She also said to my friend that they would be lucky to get a 4. They got an 8.

I was predicted a D in Physics (old system) and a 5 in Maths and got an A* and an 8 respectively. These were definitely my most hated subjects and I found it soo hard to revise for them because I found them so frustrating. I didn't even feel happy with them after the actual exams and my results were a complete surprise so don't ever doubt yourself !!

I did a lot of past paper questions and when I found a topic that I consistently got wrong (which was most of them lol), I'd find questions specifically on that area and do loadss of them. I'd also try and break the questions down into steps so I could see which bits i was okay with, and which bits were harder. And it seems obvious, but I asked for help from teachers and friends a lot too.
The hardest part is to keep working at it because it was so annoying when I was getting it all wrong and felt like I couldn't do it. You'll defo see an improvement tho if you just keep going with the practise papers and topic questions!!

Thank you, I did mine last year but my school did English lit in year 10 so I did it two years ago I watched some great YouTube videos, can’t remember the channel sorry. Loads of practice questions and pretty much memorised the revision guide.

I did loads of mind maps and went through them all on a whiteboard. I also used quizlet to remember loads of dates and used them in my essays. They make you seem like you know your stuff.
