Hey everyone, I did my GCSEs a year ago and the biggest thing I learnt was that making notes is a waste of time. It doesn't count as revision, instead, we should focus on memorising and applying the knowledge (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukLnPbIffxE <-- great video that i thoroughly recommend all students watch).

Anyways, to save you all the time, I'm selling my GCSE notes. I got all A*s and 9s and everything I learnt is in these notes!

The subjects and exam boards are as follows:
IGCSE Edexcel New Syllabus: Maths, English Literature, English Langauge, Maths (I don't have notes for this but I do tutor in it- don't hesitate to ask me any questions), Biology, Chemistry, Physics
IGCSE Cambridge New Syllabus: French, Spanish, History
AQA New Syllabus: Computer Science
OCR New Syllabus: Latin (I did Aeneid 4+6, Druids)

I also tutor Additional Maths

making notes THEMSELVES helps people understand and go through what they need to learn. copying out a textbook and selling it isn't really good for anyone except you.

it's a waste of time and since GCSEs I've bought notes off other people. Watch the video I linked above to see the evidence.
It's all about working smarter, not longer. We lie to ourselves thinking that copying out and making notes is a useful activity when it's simply not true, unfortunately.

didnt need the ted talk thanks lol. it helped me a lot personally, u can't talk for every single person at once. sounds to me like you're just trying to make a bit of buck out of struggling gcse students, which is a bit sad.

of course, I can send a sample if you would like. They cost £10 each and will be emailed to you once you purchased them.
