So I am a Y8 IB student from a school in Hong Kong and I will be going to an UK school and I will be starting my GCSEs. However, I am required to take Y10 in my new school as the system is a bit different in the IBMYP program. Therefore, I will be skipping a year when I am going to my new school. I am quite worried that will it be hard for you to pick up your GCSE subjects without going through Y9? I picked Eng, Eng Lit, Maths, Phy, Chem, Bio, His and DT for my GCSEs.

If you work hard I think you’ll be completely fine. In my experience, everything started fresh in year 10; with new text books and new content. So I don’t believe you’ll struggle keeping up, it will probably be a step up for everyone

You should be okay. You don't need to have studied the KS3 syllabus (Years 7, 8, and 9) in order to study KS4 (GCSE) material.
