Feel free to ask questions, put revision resources etc
Help each other out and be supportive
A long year ahead yk
Be friendly no hate will be tolerated!

Alrighty I do a Christmas Carol, macbeth and inspector calls along with power and conflict as my poems x

I think the choices my school did isn't bad but personally I found romeo and juilet easier then macbeth to annotatate ๐Ÿ˜‚ but both are good

I can help ppl who do jekyll and Hyde or romeo and juilet as I have learnt these as gcse texts but they aren't the ones my school is doing

Maths - edexcel
Geography- aqa
Spanish - aqa
Biology - aqa

Im doing biology, physics, chemistry, english, religion, sociology, history, art and maths (all aqa except for maths which is edexcel)
I am not excited for exams but I'm excited to finish them hehe

I have no clue what to do after gcses( probably go six form)

My school is doing macbeth (I hate Shakespeare) jekyll and hyde(so interesting I like it) inspector calls ( MY FAV)

+i think PHYSICS AND MATHS TUTOR is the best website for revising any science subject
It has questions mind maps flashcards.etc

Good luck on studying๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™Œ
my friend does pe gcse and she normally just googles GCSE pe past papers and a lot of past paper questions and website with pe GCSE questions come up. hope that helps.

Heyyy
I do
- aqa english literature (Much Ado, Love and Relationships, Inspector Calls, Pride and Prejudice)
- aqa english language
- edexcel maths ( and maybe further maths idk)
- aqa biology
- aqa chemistry
- aqa physics
- aqa geography (coasts and glaciers)
- aqa food preparation and nutrition
- ocr computer science
- aqa spanish
- aqa rs
I was petrified for year eleven and I already hate it so much ๐Ÿ˜ญ
My revision methods are just making neat lists and reading over them - itโ€™s a bit time consuming but I find this is the best way for me. If not then Iโ€™ll use websites like cognito (sciences), activelearn (spanish), mathswatch (maths), spark notes (english lit), cool geography (geography) and seneca for most subjects
Hope this helps and I should be able to help with any of the subjects iโ€™m taking except english literature or language bc iโ€™m really bad at them xx
