gcses

So basically i have my gcses starting on the 16th of may and i am failing most of my classes. I am in set one because my target grades used to be all 9's and now theyre 4's oops. I am failing english the worst and i got a u for it in the year 11 mocks. i take triple science maths music english and business and french.
any advice on what to do would be great aha im not very good a getting myself to revise thankss
heyy im not doing my gsce im in year 10 however i have been in set one everything and get average 8/9s so here is my advice

it would be a good idea to figure out what type of learner you are: auditory, visual, ect.

active recall - past papers are your best friends and im very serious. they will help you understand how questions are asked in your gsce and the very specific mark scheme

^^ to find past papers or specific exam questions on certain topics check physicsandmathtutor.com

flash cards are also a great deal of help
dont waste time rewritting notes from your revision guides it will not help you, your not absorbing any new information. especially this close to gsces its not worth it.

For english:
- mind maps / blurting
- flash cards
- go on yt and find videos that go through how to answer questions/structure and find practice questions and attempt to replicate it

for science subjects:
- past papers
- flash cards
- freesciencelessons and primrosekitten on yt is a great help

humanity subjects:
- same as english
dont think you cant achieve a good grade in your gsce due to a small bump on the road im sure you will be able to do it if you put in the effort! you can ask me for any more help! good luck!

Learning styles have been debunked, but I agree with the rest of your post.
