Here goes,

English language - 7
English Literature - 7
Science (Combined) - 77
French - 5
History - 7
Computer Science - 8
Health and Social Care - M2
Arabic - 8
Religious Education - 8


To be honest I am not completely mad about them considering I came to the UK (from Saudi Arabia) 4 months before the pandemic/lockdown so I was pretty much clueless and still trying to navigate my surroundings and their system. However there is still the slight disappointment that comes and goes, but at the end of the day here's what I got and it can't be changed.
You did really well. Better than at least 90% of students.

I mean for coming to a new system and especially during covid, those ares till v impressive scores. In the old scorings those would almost be straight As which is great. If you’re still disappointed at all, just remember that these are v unimportant compared to your A levels

Thanks, My teachers said that a 7 is a Grade 'B' in the old spec and 8 is considered an 'A' which now that you've said that and after a bit of research I don't understand why they would say such a thing.

Did better than I thought I would in some, worse than I thought I would in others, but overall came out of the harrowing experience that was the last two years with 9 GCSEs, enough to get me into my college placement without any resits.

I'm so happy over these results couldn't have asked for better, I plan on doing 4 a level's next year: Bio, Chem, Psychology and Medical Science and hopefully get into Oxford or Cambridge for Uni.

For advice, id say always look at the online marking schemes and see what the standard is!
Bit late but those are great grades, just want to ask how you revised for english literature and english language

I unfortunately got a 5 in GCSE English Lit do you think I should go ahead for a remark or keep it as 5. I'm scared my oppurtunites will be narrowed later... I'm still in year 10 btw: we do english lit gcse in year 10.
i mean a 5 is solid pass so it should be okay but english lang is more important anyway

Hi, I am not OP but also got all 9s. I would recommend revising well for mocks as if they were the real thing, as they are both good practice and a head start on revision for the actual exams. I would HIGHLY recommend going over the specification for each subject and making sure you know and understand all of the content - my method was to copy the spec into a word document and basically treat it as questions, answering underneath with my own knowledge and then filling in the rest with notes/the internet. You could also turn the parts you are not strong at into flash cards. When it comes to revising for actual GCSEs, it is useless to *just* write out notes - as well as this I would suggest active recall. Try to find your preferred method as soon as possible, whether it be flash cards, practice questions, or something else - it’s different for each person. For any essay subjects you are taking, I found timing much more of an issue so definitely do as many timed essays as you can to work out how much you can write in the time - for me the issue wasn’t having enough to write, but instead having too much to write, so it is important to be able to pick out the correct amount of relevant information for the exam.For non-essay subjects try to do past papers - you can find them all online. Also if you are taking biology look at mark schemes because they ask for very specific words to get marks...Good luck for your exams, but remember GCSEs are not the be all and end all of your education, they are just a stepping stone to the next stage of life so don’t stress too much!! Hope this helps!
