Hello . I would advice that specifically for English Literature that you practice every question in both paper 1 and 2 and make sure you know fully what to expect . Revise the major quotes from all the poems and think “ if i got this in the exam what would i compare it to “ ? . Then practice a response . The key for English Lit is practice . For the novels and plays it is important that you revise the plot , all the key characters and key quotes that link to them , context and key themes . Through lots of hard work i managed to achieve a grade 8 and i could not of done it without the continuous practice . It does take a lot of work but it is do-able i promise .

For your other subjects find a way to revise thats best for you eg writing revision cards , watching videos , making mind maps ect .

I hope this helps and i wish you all the best for your GCSE exams .

re- know your facts and verses/sources of authority well; make sure you do lots of essay practice.
english lit- you gotta be familiar with your texts. themes, characters, quotes, context...make sure you're confident talking about them. lots of essay practice.
english lang- break down the questions so you know what they're asking for. then exam q practice.
maths- practice again really, that's all you can do to get better and be more confident with the different style of questions.

Thank you all so much!
I will do my best to apply all that I learned. And the tips that I’ve been told and seen.
I know that I will do my best to work hard! And do my best, because I don’t want to let myself down. I just hope that these 10 days I have left will be used very effectively and that I’m productive
Because honestly my goal is to work as hard as I can. And then achieve what comes out of what I’ve done and worked for. If I achieve all 5s in the next mock I will be proud as long as I actually revise and work as Hard as I can!
So thank you ALL! I appreciate it all !
