A question from a student:
I am sitting my Higher Tier GCSE exam on Monday and I have tried every way to revise but it just doesn't stay in my head! While I am reading the method, I just don't seem to understand it - it feels like i am just staring at paint dry on the wall.
I'm panicking! Is there any advice or even a video I could watch covering the whole of what i need to know?
I find this sort of message quite difficult to respond to: on one hand, I really do want to help; but on the other, there's part of me frustrated by the revision having been left so late. There's not an awful lot I can do... but here's what I suggested.
Thanks for your message. I suspect, unfortunately, that you've left it a bit late: trying to cover the whole of the syllabus in a weekend isn't really practical (it's generally two school years of work), and I'm surprised you've got to this stage without realising there's a problem.
I'm afraid I don't know of a good video site that covers the whole of GCSE. I do have some suggestions, though:
I wish you luck!
