I have Computing and RE as early entries this year in Year 10 and was wondering when I should start revising to achieve grade 8s or 9s.

RE is pretty much a free 9 as the grade boundaries are always so low, I did it in year 11 albeit with no revision and got a 9. I didn't do computing GCSE, although I know even some of the best computer science people I know found it very difficult when it came to the exam so I'd start revising earlier for that

Like the guy above me said, RS(RE) is quite easy. I’d still work for it if I were you, but half of it is common sense (I revised the night before and still did well)

I don't know much about the new GCSEs as I did mine before they got significantly harder, and even then I started revision as early as possible. I did RE for GCSE and I didn't find it that hard so I prioritised the harder subjects. I'm guessing computing is harder (I didn't do it) so start revision as early as possible for computing, but don't neglect RE too much to avoid any surprises in the paper
Good luck!
