Hiya! I’m in year 13, and welcome to the student room! My advice is to not stress too much, trust your teachers (they’re there to guide and support you!), use your holidays well (they will be missed in year 11!), and honestly enjoy your subjects as it’s unlikely you will have the opportunity to study such a broad range of concepts and ideas again!

Hey and welcome! I totally agree with the person above me but I’d also recommend making revision resources as you learn each topic so that you can use them when you have a test on those topics, both in Year 10 and 11! I tried to make lots of digital flashcards and posters but do what’s right for you. Also just have fun! Good luck!

Thanks for replying everyone! and thanks for the advice. Yeah I usually do like to make revision notes, mindmaps etc and I do lots of quizzes and exam practice before the actual exam. A lot of people use flashcards but I've never used them before so I'm not too sure on how they should work.

hi, year 13 here. advice for english (both), your teachers should gradually teach you the format for answering questions, which will be the same in every paper. you definitely need to learn these!! your teachers will eventually make you do practice papers until theyre engraved in your brain. dont panic about it now lol but by year 11, just a heads up, youll need to kn ow it. it should come naturally if youre paying at least some attention, so my advice would be to not skip those lessons!

If you’re interested in flash cards I’d really recommend the app Quizzlet! You can make flash cards on there or use ones other people have made and since they’re online you don’t have to worry about losing any paper! Moreover, you can input when you have tests and the app will send you notifications encouraging you to work through all your cards before your exam, helping you to feel really prepared and confident in the content!

Hi, yeah I think they are basically doing this. We've almost finished An Inspector Calls and I have an exam on it tomorrow. It's really good because in class and for homework we've been making charcter and theme pages and also loads of practice essay plans.

yeah definitely safely store those notes on characters and get decent quotes for them early on. i ended up losing my year 10 ones/binning them because i thought they weren’t important, i was gutted by year 11 because i had to re-find quotes for every chapter all over again😭
