Here we go...

Today has been the last day of school and now I am going to the wonderful world of GCSE Revision (!). I have been told to revise for 6+ hours every day because I am a robot. What people don't realise in my opinion is that GCSEs are about LEARNING THE EXAM not LEARNING THE SUBJECT. Most of the GCSE Exams do not test the subject yet I see many people revising facts that are guaranteed not to appear. In every subject there are questions that will appear whether you like it or not and you don't need to be a genius to work out what the questions will be. Most of the GCSEs have a huge emphasis on 'advantages and disadvantages' not real subject matter.

To anyone revising for GCSEs - good luck and anyone is welcome to post comments.
