I'm hoping to be studying most of the following subjects for GCSE in the next year:
English Language: AQA
English Literature: OCR
Maths: AQA
Triple Science: AQA
Ethics and Philosophy: AQA
Geography: AQA
History: Edexcel
Health and Social Care: OCR

Please could you list a some books that would be useful for each subject. Any other tips would be appreciated too.

- Cgp books are the only revision guides you’ll need
Just type in CGP {Subject} book
I use it and it’s very helpful

however i suspect your school will give you all the textbooks next year when you start the gcse courses. The only thing that I recommend you buy yourself right now is the CGP guides, apart from that see what textbooks you're given next year and take it from there

I found BBC bitesize sufficient for most subjects. For English, lots of free content is available on youtube so i wouldn't bother getting a textbook for that. CGP textbooks are amazing for sciences. Good luck

Although it's not a textbook, I found 'freesciencelessons' on YouTube to be a great resource.

Yes, we use it in science lessons during lockdown. They were quite useful - thanks so much!
