Cramming stories for GCSEs?

Success cramming stories for GCSE?
Yea, when I did by GCSES I didn't revise properly for 2 of my exams that I had on 1 day so the day before the exams I crammed the 2 subjects in and ended up getting an A* and a B in the subjects that I crammed in. Yea it was stressful but it can be done. Good luck!

I would type down all the notes from the workbooks into a google document (to get through it quicker) and would mostly jus type the notes into my computer 2 times. But that day before the exams, I stayed up until after 12PM trying to cram it all in. In the exams, I just kinda used common sense in some of the questions
I hope this helps :smile:

If you don’t mind me asking what grades did you get for your mocks before the GCSEs? And did you cram for them?
B in English lit
A in English lang
C's in the 3 sciences
B in maths
B in history
A in Geography
A in Religious studies
A* in Food and nutrition

I didn't really think too much about mocks, I revised a bit but mostly waffled through the mocks

My current grade is a low 4 in maths right now and I need a 6 which means that I need to move to higher. would 2 weeks be enough to learn the higher content? I’m also getting a 3 in history and I also want a 6 how do I learn all the content and cram it within 2 weeks?

For the maths I think it would be possible if you work hard at it and for history maybe but idk but it is possible. u could ask your teachers to help u like ur school might have after school revision sessions where u could ask the teachers to go through anything that ur unsure about. For history it might be best to practice past papers to improve ur exam technique
Never read a word of the textbook throughout year 10 and in 2 weeks i learnt all the years content and got an A in geography
Learnt 1/12th of the a level psychology in one night before the exam ive never studied before and got an A
