      Sorry you didn’t do as well as you hoped 🙁

      Check out How my grades will affect my career in health to get some helpful answers – it’s not a simple yes or no answer there’s more to it/

      Also I don’t know if you’ve seen but we have a GCSE Results area that’d be really helpful for you 🙂

    Hi,

    I’ve just sat my GCSE exams and i’m waiting for my results. I spoke to my mum about different health routes I’m interested in and she mentioned that GCSE grades may be considered by employers or universities. Does anyone have any more information about this?

    Thanks!

    Hello my name is Molly and I am in year 9, aspiring to be a psychologist. Anyone else here wants to become a psychologist too? If so, what are you doing now to help yourself achieve that?

      Hi Ellis!

      Revision can be daunting sometimes for all of us! I’d advise you to find your rhythm. Some of us are morning people while others prefer to work in the evening. Some people work best in 40 minute time slots while others can throw themselves at a task for hours on end. There’s no right or wrong.

      And make sure to find your right environment! It plays a large role in your ability to concentrate, so make it comfortable and relaxing.

      Take one thing at a time until you get it right!

      If you have any other question, don’t hesitate to let me know 🙂

      Hi William!

      GCSE Revision can be tough if you are struggling to focus.

      Here are a few of our blogs that will help you (and others studying for GCSE’s) get through this revision period:

      1 Definitely take a look at this blog: Top Tips For Revision. It discusses the need for a balance between revising and taking time to look after yourself. It sometimes feels like taking time away from your books is just wasting time, but trust me, you need it to keep you sane!

      My advice: Take regular breaks that involve getting up and about. Also, don’t fall into the trap of checking snapchat or Instagram even if you lie to yourself and say it will only be for a few minutes, because your feed will just be filled with other people who are procrastinating or making their life look sparkly and great- neither of these things will be helpful to your wellbeing when trying to focus. Everyone does revision differently, the last thing you need is to start comparing your revision style to others!

      2. How to Manage Time Effectively Before Exams!

      3. When you’re taking a break, this blog will help you to feel less alone! GCSE Revision- what is everyone saying

      Ultimately, in a few weeks this will all be over- just keep going!
      GCSE Revision- you got this!

        I’m in 6th form and these tips are helpful for me Megan

        when I was revising for Gcses I needed some background music because my room was so silent when i was in there revising alone. I tried my normal music but it made me feel like doing anything else! My mum ended up making me try “outdoor noise” which we found on youtube and that helped me. Have you tried it?
