GCSE revision

I'm in year 10 and have started making my gcse resources (flashcards on anki).

Is there any advice anyone has to give?
The techniques I am going to employ are:
Spaced Repetition.
Active Recall.
The Pomodoro Technique.
A retrospective revision timetable.
Textbooks and youtube videos for consolidation, with flashcards for memorisation.
Past papers closer to GCSEs for technique.

Our school hasn't done mocks yet, so I can't give an accurate prediction of what I'm on track for, but I'd say it's mostly 9s.

GCSE subjects:
Mathematics - Edexcel
Physics - AQA
Chemistry - AQA
Biology - AQA
English Literature - Edexcel
English Language - Edexcel
History - Edexcel
French - AQA
Statistics - Edexcel
Computing - OCR

I'm also taking an AQA level 2 qualification in further maths.

I would like to know any advice people have to say on GCSEs, no matter how obscure.

Thank you! :smile:

Hey! For science I would definitely recommend freesciencelessons and cognito (which also has loads of revision resources on the website which is completely free).
As for English, I do AQA but I think Edexcel is similar (I may be wrong)- Mr. Salles, Stacey Reay and Mr. Everything English have sooo many useful YouTube videos all themes and characters.
French- If you have access to Netflix or other channels that allow you to change the audio of what you're watching, I'd 100% try watching TV shows in French and adding English subtitles.
I hope this helps and good luck in your GCSEs, but don't stress too much you've got loads of time :smile:

Thank you for the tips!
I knew about most of those and I’m not stressed in the slightest. :smile:
Looking for straight grade 9s and full marks in maths.
