I got 11 A*s at GCSE and 5 A’s at AS. :)
It’s right in the beginning of the year! Don’t start revising for exams now, you’ve barely covered any of the syllabus. Do make sure you’ve understood things as you go along, read over things in your text book as that’ll mean you’re not starting from square one when you do start revision closer to the time. You’ll have some modules in January presumably - spending the Christmas holidays revising for them should be enough. And then spending Easter holidays onwards revising for summer exams should be enough. Don’t be scared, just work hard and don’t stress and you’ll be fine. Feel free to ask me any specific questions if you need help though.
Uhmm, the exam board will entirely depend on what your school chooses. But honestly AQA French is pretty easy, message me off anon and I’ll be happy to help.
Hi, thank you so much! Hmm it was a year and a bit ago now so hard to remember precisely but… GCSE exams start in May right? So it was probably the Easter holidays in April? The problem with GCSEs is not that they’re really very difficult but rather that the sheer amount of stuff you have to learn is really quite overwhelming. Because of that, I recommend starting fairly early and not leaving everything til the last few days. But not so early that you get really fed up with it and start not following your revision timetable - make it realistic.
To be honest, I have always wanted to be a doctor, ever since I was a little kid and dressed up in a little doctor outfit and went around ‘making people better’ :P but obviously I had to make sure that it was the right thing for me and that’s where work experience comes in. When I did it I enjoyed it so so much. I really felt right in the medical environment and I could see myself doing working there. And that’s what really confirmed it in my mind, that and visits to various medical schools and finding out what the course is like (because there are people who like the idea of being a doctor but the medicine course doesn’t actually suit them - you gotta be careful)
Hope this helps in any way!
I wouldn’t say that. I think it’s really important to take have time off, enjoy yourself and relax, otherwise when you do study you won’t be working to your full potential and it’s a waste of time. So that’s what I did. However it’s equally important to know yourself and how you learn, and do the amount that you need to do to succeed. Yes, I worked hard for my GCSEs; in the couple of weeks leading up to them especially it’s VERY important to focus. But I made sure to do other things too.
Lots of tips! Here goes:
That’s all I can think of for now, do you have any questions about particular subjects? And I got all A*s so do feel free to ask, I’m happy to help.

last night was amazing, my friend came round and we watched films. pride and prejudice just never ceases to amaze me, i love love love love love it. mr darcy and elizabeth are so perfect.
also whilst watching i had flashbacks of the time last year or the year before when me and monica had to act out the scene where mr collins proposed to lizzie for our GCSE english. guess who was mr collins. just the thought of professing my ‘violent affections’ still cracks me up. ~
