Hi. I am currently in year 10. Just want an idea of how much work i need to do in year 11 per day in order to get all 8s and 9s at gcse, and what kind of steps i will need to take to get there.

Thanks!

well when I was in year 10, I didn't revise that much. in year 11, I worked hard for mocks. I say that u should start revising for gcses after December. don't start revising hardcore from December, make it hardcore as you go on. i just done 2 weeks of exams, think I done good in science, probs 7-7 or 8-8

you should start revising from the start of the year by making sure you understand everything but not overdo it, if you leave it to January and dont understand something it won't go well. Also whats the need for all 9's no course requires that.

Right now im doing 2-3 hours on a weekday and around 5 hours on a holiday/weekend because i have end of years coming up. I want all 9s in biology, chemistry, physics, maths, geography and RS, and 8s in the rest (german, english language and literature, computing) as a minimum. Predicted 3 9s, 6 8s and a 7 but want to get a lot better than this.

Why just why are you revising for that long, sit back and relax a bit in year 10. All you need to be doing is making sure you understand the stuff, not overload yourself with work

start as early as possible! it might feel pointless revising so far in advance but honestly you won’t regret it. especially subjects like english where quotes are important, try and learn these early on. make flashcards throughout the year/for mock exams and then you can reuse these when revising for the actual exam.

in terms of time frame, i would start doing small bits on weekends whenever you can and start doing work after school everyday (or most days) around feb half term. you may not want to the work, but trust me it’s not fun to be there the night before an exam having done almost no revision

You are going to be burnt out by the end of GCSES and then the part where you are meant to revise (A Levels) the most will become the hardest for you just saying

Yeah they’re you’re eoy exams for year 10. You get mocks in year 11. Honestly just calm down a bit this year you don’t need this stress and all this work. Start working hard after december - just make sure you really understand all the things you are taught

I swear people like u just come and start threads to make people who are not so academically clever feel uncomfortable. Like just come on here to show off about your smartness. If you're getting all 8's and 9's now then what's the need to ask. Just continue what your doing and then your fine. So what's the problem???

don't get me wrong grades r important but not everything. Ensure u got a lot of extra curricular... and a personality. This is not directed at you specifically lol just a general statement. I mean ask yourself why u want these grades. What will they lead to? Will you ever be satisfied? With your attitude you will get all 9's so relax and keep doin what ur doing.
