Revising for GCSE Exams in NovemberWatch
I’m going into Year 12 now, but I WOUKD start revising very little in November. Honestly it seemed on your grades now and what you wnat to get in August. But don’t overload yourself now because you’ll just stress yourself out. November mocks will be coming up so revise for them. And it’ll give you an idea of what you’ll get in August. But I would properly start revising around January? Little but often
This year's results will be better on average than last year's so don't panic yet. Only re-sit what you feel you absolutely have to and don't bother re-sitting a GCSE if you're taking the A level, it would be a total waste of time and the school's money.
I've been told they're going to be lower than expected though by everyone until now. I guess the best thing to do would be wait until August 20th and decide what to do.
The grades schools have submitted are significantly better than schools usually achieve and so these are being moderated down to more realistic grades. However, Ofqual have announced that overall the GCSE grades will be 1% better than last year's results.
