Hey guys!

I thought I’d start this thread off to help everyone out!
So, leave you predictions below for what’s gonna turn up in the actual GCSES May / June time.
If anyone has predictions for Edexcel Combined Higher Science, and Edexcel History (Cold War, Henry, Medicine and Germany), I’d love to know haha.
Make sure you leave the exam board and tier so it’s easy for people to understand

** remember these are just predictions

that's helpful so they probably won't come up this year, so i'll spend less time revising their characters/quotes etc?

The thing is, you should still revise them, especially poem wise, because the question could be 'compare remains and a poem of your choice', and that would require you to have information of another poem in your head. And you might want to mention Sheila in your answer.

That’s so similar to me! I’m doing Edexcel changes in medicine c1848-1949, Cold War, Russia/Soviet Union and the USA 1918-1941. How are you finding it and how did mocks go?

Ah I have really enjoyed the content- we just started medicine a few weeks ago (so after mocks), but i am finding it hard to organise notes by theme and all. So about mocks, my russia and usa bits went really well and i lost about 5 marks in each, but my germany didnt go very well (probably because this is the one i had the least knowledge and revision of - for my 16 marker i was out of the time period they gave so i lost a lot of marks there :/ ) How are you finding it and how did your mocks go?

I generally structure my exam questions the same way and make sure that i am directly answering the question (using discourse markers such as: One effect is...Another effect is..., and it honestly just helps keep the structure) and not including too many irrelevant pieces of information, because there is hardly enough time in the exam (honestly 45 minutes is not enough ugh). It depends on the questions - the medicine and germany questions are quite different and i am just learning how to do the medicine ones (i literally have a 16 marker about surgery in front of me and its due for tomorrow ohmyy).
The other igcse subjects i do are maths, triple science, spanish (but i have different boards for my other subjects - i also do english ocr, additional maths ocr, geography aqa, computer science aqa)

I have always really enjoyed history as the content is very interesting - although there is SO much of it! I’m finishing theme 3 of medicine this week! As for the mocks, I got 108/120 overall which was a grade 9. I’m doing history a level btw!

Sorry for such a late reply! No, for some reason we’re jumping all around the place but we’re finishing theme 5 in school tomorrow so we can do revision now! And no I have no idea what topics we are doing at A Level, but my sisters friend does A Level history at my school and I believe she said she’s doing the tudors so possibly that? Do you know?
