In the last decade, the government has taken significant steps to improve the standard of maths and English in England. This arose out of concern in the education sector that not enough children were attaining the expected standards. So why is learning maths and English so important? 1. University: Many university courses require pupils to have both maths and English to at least GCSE. 2. Jobs: Most employers won’t consider an applicant unless they have at least GCSE grade
GCSE revision can get a bit same-y. Read subject, make notes on subject, make smaller notes on subject. Memorise notes. Repeat. Here are some tips to make revision interesting and effective! 1.) Record yourself: Instead of writing down all those terms you need to know for your subjects, try recording each term and definition on your webcam or mobile phone recorder. Rest your eyes by playing these recordings back, trying to breathe deeply as you take it all in.
