GCSE Diary

I feel as though that I might have not revised enough and GCSEs are in less than 4 months. I will record everything that I have revised for here. However, I would really appreciate if you guys give me tips. It will really help me <3. Feel free to write here everything you have done too and it would also be great to write motivational quotes that will help us all do well. I am trying to aim for grade 9 in all my subjects. Wish me luck.
What subjects do you do? I'm in year 11 as well!

okk,i do maths (edexcel), english (aqa), history (aqa), combined science (aqa), computer science (edxcel), spanish (aqa) and economics (aqa). we don't have exactly the same subjects but some similarities! what topics do you do for history as a period study, thematic study, wider world depth study and british depth study? For me, it's Germany: Democracy and Dictatorship, Power and the People, Conflict and Tension: the inter-war years and Elizabethan England.

Bio- genetic engineering, selective breeding, types of communicable diseases

I think you should start now! It’s better late than never and you still have quite a lot of time to learn content without cramming! It’s all about being precise and using the revision time effectively. Firstly, I think you should evaluate the best revision methods that work for YOU, because not all people learn the same. For example, flashcards (they don’t work for me but I know many who love them), blurting etc. Watch videos on revision tips and after you know what works for you, begin ASAP! You want to be able to be confident when you walk into the exam room in May so be prepared and don’t cram things in when you have only a month left!

Good luck 🤞
