Tips you would give a GCSEs student who doesn’t know anything doing exams in 7 monthsWatch
In terms of getting good GCSEs, I know it seems pretty daunting right now but TRUST me, it's perfectly manageable, even if you know absolutely none of the content at the moment. I promise you that. You'll look back and see (assuming you're going on to do A levels). So take me for example, I didn't revise at all like you for most of the year but in the last week (you read that right) I grinded and got some decent grades to show for it. (9, 8, 8, 8, 7, 7, 7, 7, 6, 6, 6)
My tips will vary for each subject, and it depends on what your strengths are. There's two parts to this: motivation and revision.
For English lit, try some practice questions and this blog really helped: https://madameanglaise.wordpress.com...-1-question-3/ Honestly, if you can't be arsed to read the books, don't bother. As long as you've got some good, short quotes for each topic and character.
For English language: same as above apart from the books. Also, a massive thing that gets you marks is the creative description/story in the final question - what I did was write the perfect description and kind of memorised it then manipulated that description to fit the question.
For maths: Mymaths, youtube videos, maths textbooks + practice questions. It's an annoying one to revise if you can't be arsed, but when you can, it'll help a lot. Music in the background helps a lil.
For the sciences: TEXTBOOKS. I legit kid you not, the day before each science exam, I would go through each page of the cgp book, write up the info on my cupboard with a rub-out pen and memorise that info. I didn't have enough time to do exam questions because I was too busy trying to remember the info, but it worked out in the end. (I got a 7 for each science)
I won't lie to you, I still struggle with motivation even as an A level student, but I think a couple things to bear in mind may help. For example, the prospect of what you want to do in the future - if you looked at unis you want to go to or courses, or apprenticeships, ANYTHING. Just something to motivate you into wanting it. I can assure you though, no matter how unmotivated you are, when it comes down to the final week, you'll be doing something. Listen to music with it, to keep you on task, use the extension "self control" to stop you getting distracted, and make a to do list of doable aims you can do for each day.
I know school sucks any enjoyment out of learning (ironically) but you need to force yourself to find something enjoyable to attach with the subjects you're doing. For example, maybe test yourself with your friends, make it fun, make it into a competition, etc, or find something you like to associate learning with so you're more inclined to learn and like it.
I don't know if this helps, but I hope it does
