hey there
i am in year 11, and i am about to finish all my exams soon so i have a few tips,,
your grades right now are very good and you should be extremely proud of yourself!!
the only tips i have is mainly for maths, biology and i can help with english! my final grade is a 6 or 7 rn, so i have plenty of suggestions,
for maths, especially in year 11, use the website hegarty maths, it is so good and explains every possible topic you could think of, math gets pretty intense in the higher tier exams, some stuff you wont even learn in school ( well in my case anyways ), i only got a 4 in my mocks, i struggled a lot. so make sure you study your maths!! ( also physics too! )
for biology, im getting a grade 6 , i would suggest making sure you have plenty of revision cards, as it is very content based.
For english literature and language, i would suggest doing word banks with new words you have never used before, grabbing a good vocab will help you so much in the exams. ensure you know how to analyse deeply and understand potential symbolic terms that might be in your extracts, you can revise english by going over past papers, if you struggle with english ( especially poetry or any of the lit exams ) there is a youtuber called Mr Bruff, who deeply analyses these things
anyway gl for the future the exams are achievable, as long as you keep up to date and study plenty

Don’t stress about your grades so much in y9- went from a 6 to a 9 in my y11 mocks so it’s very much possible to boost your grades over time

For now focus on just
understanding the content so it’s easier when it comes to revising quotes.
And look back at assessment feedback to see how your answers could improve.

It’s honestly just about the technique of answering the question; which is to be critical and analytical, and once you’ve got that then you’re sorted

But that comes from practice and you’ve got plenty of time for it so literally don’t worry.

I dont really have tips for improvement but I have tip for when it comes to revision

start very early like from year 10 constantly go over the stuff you already did and do practice questions on them that way when you get to you're exams you won't be stressed and overwhelmed and having to cram everything

don't worry too much as you're in year 9 right now- just do the work you're set, revise for end of unit tests, exams etc but don't burn yourself out. enjoy this year, as it's a nice year. just make sure you're on top of things in year 10 and not leaving revision till last minute. practice questions for english and maths are important so make sure you do plenty of those! hand essays in to your teachers too so you can get feedback. i recommend sparknotes, mr bruff, mr salles teaches english, litcharts, shmoop and cliffnotes for english :yes:
it's so easy to waffle and lose focus of the question on english so always plan your essays and constantly be looking at the question
