Just making this thread to hopefully motivate me for the last push with revision. This year I’m doing six Edexcel International GCSEs as I already did 4 last year (Spanish, Biology, English Lang. and Geography)

This year:
Maths
History (WWI and II; USSR; International organisations)

English Lit. (Pride and Prejudice, An Inspector Calls and Of Mice and Men)

Latin
French
German

Any revision tips for those would be super helpful, and I can always give some for the ones I did last year if anybody wants them...

ONLY A FEW WEEKS TO GOOO

Oo yes I loved English Lang. I’d practise just going through the texts/ poems and picking out every language/ structure feature, until you can do it really fast. This is super helpful in the exam. Also for Creative Writing, I was told that all the examiners really want, apart from a story that makes sense, is for you to throw in techniques. So for my story I made sure I added some pathetic fallacy, a simile/ metaphor/ personification, a variety of sentence structures, a bit of description, and also a one sentence paragraph for effect. I know that’s not really a revision tip but it really helped me at the time. Otherwise just past papers, and also doing essay plans rather than doing the whole essay...

I don’t think so, but I’m not 100% sure because I’m home educated

The best thing I did was to record, page by page, my set texts. I listened to each passage through a few times, then using the latin I would write it out, then check it against the original english. I also put together a master copy, which was the entire text from start to finish, and I listened to that on repeat as I went to sleep in the hope that it would stay in my brain. Listen to the recordings on the bus to and from school or as you go to sleep, and you'll become familiar with it very quickly. Good luck!
