Thanks you!
For History I looked through past papers and made essay plans of the most difficult questions or frequently asked questions. I also made notes of key topics and learnt as many relevant facts and dates as possible.
For maths I did copious amounts of past papers and I did specific questions for weak topics from the textbook as recognized by incorrect answers in the papers.

Ah thank you so much - out of interest, which history topics did you do? Also there's SO MUCH CONTENT for history - I'm slightly worried I won't be able to learn anything so do you have any tips? Sorry for asking so many questions!

League of Nations, Peace settlement of 1919-21, Road to war, Early cold war international relations, containment, German depth study.
If you are short on time, I would recommend going over the key events of your topics and learning stats in the process. Make sure you know what happens over a certain period. That is the most important thing

How were you feeling after sitting the exams and going to get your results? Did post-exam overthinking ruin your summer?

Good question. After each exam, Whether it went well or not in my view, I didn't allow it to impact the rest of my exams. After exams, I personally did not think too much about my results.I tried to do things to distract me. It was always at the back of my mind but post-GCSEs summer if the most enjoyable one I've had with loads of chances to meet up with others

what do you recommend to do for german depth studies, I'm really struggling with understanding sources and don't really understand what they mean. I'm supposed to get 100% for my medicine through time but everything else makes me want to cry

Only too much. Although for some subjects, even though the content didn't come up, I could still use the extra knowledge I had to develop my answers even further. Specifically History and RS

How many dates did you have to remember for history? I got an 8 in the mock because it wasn’t including the Cold War and I can’t remember all the dates for the Cold War. How important are dates do you think as well apart from helping to order your response chronologically?
