Hey everyone. GCSES are very soon and I really missed out on a LOT of revision.*
What would be the best way to improve most importantly:
-German*
-English Literature
-Music (Written Exam)
-RE
I just really want to get everything at at least a 7 and my English Lit and German need a lot of work to get there.*
I just really need the revision techniques / practices I should follow and any tips for ANY specific subjects (except Maths, no need).

Same! For maths what would you recommend? I know it's practice but how should I do effective practice please?

For German (My only good GCSE so far)for writing and speaking try to use at least 1 or 2 idioms(I can send you a list of idioms if you want). Use varied sentence structure like starting with the time phrase first and using conjuctives.

Definitely use the conditional tense, modal verbs and past, present and future tense to impress the examiners.

For the future tense besides using 'werden' I also use:
-Ich plane,....zu infinitive
I plan to....
-Ich hoffe,....zu infinitive
I hope to....
-Ich habe vor,....zu infinitive
I intend to.... (I recommend this one since you're using a future tense phrase and a separable verb)

If you need any more help let me know (^_^ ) Although I suck at listening and reading.

Bro I’m pretty much in the exact same situation as you as long as you swap music with geo
I’m only good at science and maths and trash at everything else . I wanna get 9s in my science and math and somehow get a grade 7 or above for the rest because otherwise I would feel as if ive underperformed. STRESSING OUT!!!

Thank you! If you can send them, feel free to!
When it comes to Math & Further Maths for me, I get near full marks most of the time without revision but I'd really recommend Past Papers since they will have the different questions where you can practice putting your mathematical knowledge in use. Do the paper, if there's a question you can not at all do, skip it and finish your practice paper. Then mark the questions you've done. Afterwards, go revise for the questions you weren't able to do and do them and fix any corrections. Hope that helps!

In my opinion, the best tip would be quality over quantity. Don’t cram in tonnes of revision because the likelihood is that you won’t remember much by cramming tonnes of content in all at once, take it slowly, 4 hours a day is better than 8 if you can remember what you’ve learned in those 4 hours. Good luck to you, it will all be over soon 😊

I need revision tips for English Language GCSE AQA and I also need some revision tips for WJEC GCSE Film Studies. I could help anyone with Maths, Biology, Psychology and French if any of you need help or revision tips in any of those subjects. Thanks and Best wishes From Michael.

You're gonna hate what I'm about to say xD but the best way to 'revise' English lang is to do practice reading questions and writing questions; hand them in to your teacher to mark and look at what to improve. Another way is to practice grammar / spelling. A good way is by reading books but I know there's lots of practice websites and apps etc. I personally don't need help in your subjects but a friend of mine would love advice for psychology lol. I heard it's hard! Thanks!

Buy the Psychology Revision Guide as that will help you for each topic. Do Flashcards or mind maps on each topic.
Do practice and review questions as the book I have also helps with that. Which topic does she struggle with the most? If you know?
