Are GCSE's hard work and how much time do you spend doing homework and revising/studying etc.???
I took my GCSEs last year and I have to be pushed to work when I am at home (study leave) because otherwise I won't bother. It's not usually much, just depends how much you know of the subject. For example:
You know a lot in French, it will come easy to you than people that hate French. You hate History, therefore you won't remember or listen much in History.
Try to get along with the teachers, the more you get on with them, the easier the lesson will be for you. Meaning if you can do the homework it will be done quicker because you knew what you had to do and how.
People work differently. I don't remember things. Therefore I crammed everything in at last minute and I passed with As and Bs.
Hmm it was a lot, because for some insane reason I took 10 classes (yeah I dunno), I also didnt study till last minute. None of this was smart. I'd do as many practise papers as possible. Our eng teacher used to keep us after school every week to do a practise paper. I would recommened doing one on your own if your teachers dont demand it...
Depends what courses you take, don't take applied buisiness, it's hell! I'm currently doing my history and it has to be in before Friday, I also have Geography to be in for them, unless you have a lot of time on your hands, I advise you don't take more than one humanity. Begin to revise in year 11, in little and short sessions, good luck!
well I dont much im doing applied business! and yes it really is hell im also doing applied art, textiles, citizenship and R.E
I know I should study but I cant concentrate very well!!
and its also harder for me because I had to repeat a year due to missing to much because of medical reasons. gosh so much stress! lol
I Spent an hour a week = /
but I did have loadsa revision posters above my bed that I looked at before I went to sleep , school ect..
It helped a lot but I had some really weird dreams about circle theroms and shizz like that but they stayed in my head so it was all goood = ]
Throughout your courses your teacher should do revision lessons particularly before exams. You should also try putting in a bit of revision whenver you can (which is what I need to be doing lol). But basically the more effort you put in the more that will be rewarded.
as with anything. you get out what you put in.
