my advice; look up last years grade boundaries and increase them by 5% as that's what they will apparently go up by but of course it changes depending on how everyone found it. But that could give you a rough idea

find the exams/subjects you took and times the mark by 1.05 and that is a rough estimate of what it would be. This isn't accurate though and it could be different!!!

I feel the same. It's so stupid and I wish we still did the old gcses with coursework as I'm soo much better as coursework! These new exams are basically just memory tests :-(

Exactly! I feel like the only people who get 9s r ones who r just then naturally smart people not the people who actually put tons and tons of effort in like if it was effort grades I’d be getting way better. 1 test can determine ur future so dumb

You could literally know everything on the exam but just word it wrong or a question trips you up and it means you fail the exam! Try not to worry, and just take them one exam at a time because it wont ruin your future as there are always resits and other paths in life to take if you don't get the grade you need!

GCSE'S are a walk in the park once u get into y12. They really are not that hard, especially with the stupidily low grade boundarie. Your telling that without a decent amount of efficient revision you cant get 70%? you just need to play it smart; securing the easy marks is the simplest way to get a grade 9

it's a stressful situation to be in when you're right in the exam. So yeah it might be easy once i get to college but it's hard when you haven't done anything past these types of exams. I don't think you should get to tell someone whether an exam was easy or not since it really depends on who they are. :-/

yes but comparing the gcse’s To last year they asked us the decent topics which everyone knows about but this year they are asking us stuff thst your skip over because ur like how the hell r u meant to know that off by heart. It’s just dumb when ur in the exam and pressure gets to you and u csnr remember something and ur stuck there for 20 mins strisght trying to recall what it is. It may seem easy now ur past year 11 but if they r thst easy my teachers shouldn’t be struggling with questions on it.
