I mainly used flashcards for memorisation oh and lots of practice questions.
Use the resources given to you and for the love of god pay attention in lessons.
Just work hard; what goes around comes around 😉
The only thing anyone talks about is exams and this can be scary, but as long as you know that it isn't the end of the world if something goes wrong it's a lot easier to cope. Start revising early (everyone says it but it's true) and you will be fine. Don't compare your revision/progress to anyone else's, you are on a different journey to them.
Take every opportunity of help from teachers. I was lucky enough to be able to attend 7 hours of before/after school revision a week, and this helped me massively. If anything like this is available to you, take it. Teachers can cater these sessions to the people who turn up every week, and its a good way to revise efficiently. I would forget I was revising as it just felt like an add on to the school day.
I hope this helped and I wish you the best of luck!

There were few revision guides for some subjects and we only got our RS and computer science textbooks about a month or 2 before the exams. You would ask a teacher, "so I got x% on this test, what sort of grade does that equate to? " and the teacher would say "ummm, it's hard to tell really because this is the first year"
But, in the end, hard work pays off and my friends and I were all quite happy with our results
So yh do your best, make sure u get a decent grade in maths & english and the subjects u want to continue with, and just do well generally to get into sixth form. But really it’s A Levels that matter more.
Yes, it’s stressful as it’s your exams but as long as you revise and stay on top of your work, it’s not that hard. You’ll spend the year believing it’s so difficult but really it isn’t!
Just revise and stay on top of work and it’ll be fine! It’s your last year so just behave and revise and you’ll be fine
