Are GCSE test testing you a lot on what you did in year 7 and younger years or more about what you learn in year 9 and ten ?

In my school we started the GCSE content in year 9 so I only revised that stuff.
Start from whenever your school starts GCSE content.

Year 7 and year 8 are mostly just to strengthen your understanding of each subject and gives you a chance to see which subjects you enjoy before you choose your GCSE options.

As others have said, it's mostly adding and expanding on what you covered in year 9 and there are a lot of new and interesting topics that you cover, so I wouldn't worry too much about trying to remember things you covered in previous years.

It’s your course modules only. So in Science only what you do in the course (textbook) and like humanities and English will be on the texts and stuff. I don’t understand how you would think that content before the GCSE course starts would be in the exams.

so are you saying that year 9 basically the start to learning GCSE topics? and year 8 and 7 were just foundation years to build up knowledge? xxxxx

Exactly.
Most courses don’t start until year 10. At my school only maths and science started in year 9.

Yeah, I'd say so, I would advice that you ensure that you have revised everything you did in year 9 as it will come in handy for year 10. Don't do any hardcore revision though, just briefly going over things to make sure that they're still in you head will be enough. At my school we started the GCSE course at the start of year 10, and I'd say that for subjects like maths and English we were expected to remember most of the things we did in year 9. For the sciences and humanities there were a lot of new topics and information that we had never covered before, but some things were built on the foundation that we had from KS3.

Literally it starts when they tell you it does. I don’t get why people don’t understand this. I explained it all to this guy a while ago. It starts in year 10 normally except for some, mainly maths and science that start in year 9. When you start the GCSE texts and work from the GCSE textbooks in class, it does mean this is GCSE content. If you’re working on random units like in history the world wars, or in science doing things from the activate text books, then it’s not GCSE. After your options. If you did it before your options it’s not GCSE because you didn’t chose it as a GCSE subject.

Yeah exactly, I mean we started everything in year 10 and I was surprised to find that some people briefly started in year 9.
