Hi. I'm going into year 9 and want to get an early start in my GCSEs as I'm aiming for 9's & 8's. I know it's early but I can not find many resources and I just want some tips. Dose anyone have any advice? (And before it comes up I am trying to prioritise my social life as well).

If you do history, geography or a language GCSE, Quizlet is so helpful for learning dates, case studies, vocab etc.

For sciences & maths, I recommend doing lots of past-paper questions, and for every topic or sub-topic create a phrase bank, with phrases which come up in most mark schemes (for example, evolution in Biology - pre-existing genetic variation in a population due to random mutations, individuals which possess the advantageous allele are more likely to survive and reproduce and pass on their genes to future generations. The phrases 'individuals', 'advantageous allele' and 'survive and reproduce' are very crucial). For English, I recommend Mr Bruff, and Mr Salles, and if your school has it - Massolit has been so useful for A-Level English Literature, that I am sure it will also be very helpful for GCSE English Literature.

(I hope that helped, and if you have any other questions - I am very happy to help! )
