Advice for starting GCSEs plz

Use active recall methods like blurting to memorise content and then do loads of practice questions. Then separate the correct answers from incorrect, focus on the incorrect answers, and do more similar to those incorrect . Use spaced repetition and you should get all 7s,8s, and 9s. I worked for me, my little sister, my little brother as well as carrying our A-levels. Always focus on your weaker topics and when you revise don't sit there for hours on end. Stay consistent every day 1-2 hours of a mixture of blurting and questions. Remember to keep a well-rounded routine so you cover all subjects evenly. With subjects like english and history/geography, do practice papers at home and ask teachers to mark them and write you back some feedback.

Good luck :smile:
