What syllabus are you? I will private message you with a link to the vocab I used for my Latin GCSE.
OCR is the exam board. Booklover1313 you're saving my life rn!! What other GCSE's did you pick?
Quizlet’s really good for vocab, particularly the write function.

With grammar, i’d probably recommend Essential GCSE Latin - John Taylor

And in terms of learning, start with the vocab doing around 10 or so words a day. The link i’ve sent you includes verbs in all forms which is why it’s so big, but there are others with just the verbs in the I form. Do past paper translations too because a lot of the time, you can get most of the meaning from a few words, even if you don’t entirely know what everything means.
