Hi, I've been lurking for a few days but first time posting because I seriously need help.

I do the following exams, and my mock results have just come:

GCSE: Maths, English Lang + Lit, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, History, Economics, Computer Science, German and Philosophy.

AS: Maths, Philosophy

For my mocks I got 9s/A*(AS) in everything except German and History and in my AS I got a C in philosophy. In German I got a 7. which is bad enough and a 6 in History....

I really need some tips fast on how to prepare for german and history and philosophy. German is a real shame as I'm really good at it! If I don't I'm going to completely fail this summer..... Thanks!!

Okay for a start, "completely fail" is a massive overstatement and you're going to get loads of people telling you to go away if you keep moaning about very above par mock performances. Most people would be over the moon to get these results in their actual exams - let alone their mocks (which, tbf they probably didn't revise for!). However, speaking as a student with slight perfectionistic tendencies; I understand that these were not the grades you had in mind so I'll try to give some advice.

For German - prep really well for your speaking exam. Idk how you do it but I had to learn a picture and answer some prepared questions, as well as a few unprepared ones. Learn the picture by heart and as many of the prepared topic questions as you can. This is worth your time because when you do the writing section of your exam you can just reel off a load of perfect A* phrases that you've already memorised.

For history, learn your dates to get a really good idea of chonology. Then just practice, practice, practice. At GCSE there's such a set exam technique you get used to it if you keep doing timed essays. Actually time them though to add the pressure and make sure you don't waffle on.

Sorry idk about philosophy but good luck!
