I'm not sure about psychology, but english literature (and by this I mean my exam board) requires 1 piece of coursework per year, which should conform generally to a 2000 - 3000 word limit.

Exactly :) Most GCSEs are exam-based and a good deal of revision'll see you through.

Dnt worry that much trust me i didnt even bother revising until the last month (im not saying dnt revise, dnt get me wrong)!!! Make sure ur coursework is of the highest u can do and just go for it in the exam. Remember, in humanity subjects mostly there is no right or wrong, its the way u argue ur points eg in english and history and re etc; sciences get hold of CGP's books for science and dnt listen to the teachers who say 'if u just learn them and nothing else ull fail' learn the stuff in there for the sciences, its really simple cut down and helpful
Is there ne particular subject u need advice in? dnt hesitate to ask

Gd Luck (im in college now btw just dne the GCSES)

Perhaps for Science you could ask to be put into the foundation exam-highest grade a C but quite easy to attain and like wise with Maths-highest grade there is a B.

gcses are easy! just revise enough and you can can get As in all of them. you just have to remember stuff.
im an A2 student now and gcses seem so easy, there is no understanding required or anything! just get a good revision book, Remember it all and you can get an A!!! easily

Good luck, you have loads of time to revise!

Oh yeah, CGP books are great for science revision! (That is, if you can stand the awful jokes!). It sounds as though you're in a similar postion to the one I was in two years ago. My GCSE's eventually consisted of A's, B's and C's (I was chuffed!)... I think people always do better than their predictions, and if the teachers are predicting you those grades you can probably get them or even better!
As for doing three AS subjects, that's a good idea as long as you work just as hard as you would if you were doing four. I did three AS subjects and it hasn't counted against me at all, I've had offers from some good universities! I take psychology and English lit, and I can tell you that they are a wise choice of subjects, you can really get into them!

Good luck!

It's easy to say that now! But I seem to be the only one who feels that they were under more stress during the GCSE's than in their A levels- I'd hate to be doing 10 subjects again. At least with 3 subjects I can remember all the topics I have to revise for

Psychology is very interesting. My exam board has no courseowrk during the AS then one MAJIOR piece in y13 towards they a2 thats worth a whole module. Other exam boards do this differently, and some might not have any at all so check on the exam board you'd be doing and ask the teachers about it.

I was predicted a C in history, D in eng lang, and C in geography. hell i even got a D in my eng mock 1 week before the exam! Results came through and i had got an A for Hist, A for Eng lang and B for Geog. Those teachers don't know anything!
