Hi guys, I'm starting year 9 so I'm wondering what the difference between it and year 8 are, like what stuff I need to bring with me (ringbinders?), ways to study effectively, places to buy cheap but good stationary, if I do my GCSEs then etc (as apparently some people have to do maths gcses early?!). if you could help me and tell me about this stuff i would be grateful, thanks :3

but... why do all the year 9s carry ring binders around then? and apparently you choose half your GCSEs then?

When I moved to year nine it was half the year doing work like year 8 just then I chose my GCSE options half way through. Could be different in your school but from what I understand that is the general layout of it. As for what to bring, just bring what is needed for that class. You may not need ring binders for certain classes but you might need them for others. - you need to figure out how you learn/revise and work from there. Tip- figure that out before your GCSE/A-level. And I did my maths early but I don’t think it was year 9 early

Lmao ring binders, wait until you get to lever-arch folders, that's when things get really intense. If they've all got ring binders it might be because the school gave them ring-binders.

You choose your GCSEs in year 9, yes. Think about what subjects you don't want to carry on with. Re: early GCSEs, that probably won't be the case, you'll sit them all in the same season.

Really the most important thing you need to do is pay attention in lessons.

yeah that's why I wanna get ringbinders as I'm assuming they use them as it's easier to keep study papers in neatly, thanks

I don't think they got the ringbinders as they're not 'school style' 💀 I think they might be for studying? so I'm just gonna get a bunch of studying stuff tbh to try and get organized before my GCSEs, and thanks, I've already talked about that with my parents so I'm pretty sorted, thank you.

How? What are you going to put in them? Students in Year 10 in my school haven't even touched a folder in their life but they still do well.

Dear oh dear....
The tough times have begun for you kid you need to stop all your social life and concentrate on just doing homeworks, once you have finished homeworks read your books. You have not waste time in year 9. The fun is over now things just got serious....

just do your h/w, try do a little revision each week so year 11 isn't one major shock. YOU ARE SO LUCKY if you don't go to a school like mine, they try scare us when year 11 is the most important. Just chillax, but work hard. You still have 3 more years.


The Works is a nice stationary shop.
