Hi! Are you sure you’ve even started the gcse courses yet, at my school we started them in Y10 and even if you have, you’ve got over 3 years before your exams which is plenty of time to go over bits you don’t understand!

If you don’t understand stuff it’s probably best to speak to your teachers about the workload/what you don’t understand :yep:

You’re in Y8. Nothing you’re learning now will be relevant at all to GCSEs. There might be a very small impact (some minor adjustments, maybe) on 2022 exams, but it’s extremely unlikely things will be affected beyond that. Don’t stress about Y8. Just pay attention in your lessons, do your work and enjoy your childhood.

You don't start your GCSE content until Year 10 anyway, don't worry about it, you haven't missed anything

im in year 9 now, so im doing mine in 2023. i don't think you have anything to worry about because you don't learn any gcse content in year 8, but that's just my experience with it.

Some people start in Y9. I did. But yeah, Y7 and 8 are for building the foundations for GCSE. Besides, anything that was relevant in Y7 and 8 is covered at the start of GCSE anyway (e.g. like animal and plant cells). Maybe spend your time figuring out your interests and exploring topics or subjects you’re curious in if you want to do something, OP.

Ouch, choosing GCSE's in Year 8 doesn't sound too fun. At least not from the "I'm 13 and everything is stressful" POV .
But yeah, don't worry about it OP, you will be fine.

That's even better, now you have more time to cover content. Most people before started at Year 10, so missing some Year 9 GCSE content really isn't gonna do much damage. You'll only go back over it in the following years.

i’m in yr 9 and honestly i feel exactly the same, i think don’t stress because know one can say what will happen so live in the present. I would hate for gcses and prom to be cancelled but we just have to deal with it because this is just how it is now, hope this helps! ☺️

Year 9s will be fine! Should the vaccine rollout continue at the rate it's going, corona should be handled as much as possible by the time you do your exams.

Enjoy the moments you make in Year 9 - you'll treasure these.

you're in year 8 so you won't be starting gsce courses until next year at the earliest- honestly, it's not worth stressing about that far in advance as it'll do you no good! just focus on doing the work you're doing right now

Chill. I didn't even think 2021 exams would be cancelled but look at what happened. Now I am home, not doing official exams.
I'm sure exams will go on in 2024. Correct me if I'm wrong. And you shouldn't even be thinking about them. Live your life and stop stressing.
- even more stressed out teen.

Hi,I’m in year 8 going on to year 9 as well.I completely understand how you feel. I am feeling quite stressed out about it. I think the best thing to do it every test you have try to get a really high score because what they might do is find an average of all your scores for the future. So I would just take each day and time you have as a valuable time so that you can learn and cover everything you need to learn and cover the things you’ve missed out. What I’m doing is after every lesson I’m just revising and going over my class work notes. I hope this reply helps.
