The TRF Study area is a place where all members can help each other out to do well in exams and coursework. I noticed a few threads recently all asking questions such as what to do in their Maths coursework, what certain words mean and even a Spanish learning centre. I thought this might be a good idea to unite those kind of things under one thread.

Here are some websites which I use to help with GCSEs

General:

www.nationalgeographic.com/homework (http://www.nationalgeographic.com/homework) (Geography, history, maps help)
www.infoplease.com/homework (http://www.infoplease.com/homework) (Dictionary, almanacs, Encyclopedia, homework help)
SPARKNOTES (http://www.sparknotes.com/)

English:

Maths:

Science:

Revision/exam technique:

If anyone has any other recommended sites let me know and I can make list more comprehensive, I'll make sure to list below those who have contributed links so credit goes where its due ;)

Well, I guess that’s all for now. Hopefully this thread will catch on and help out a few people here.

Thanks to...

Alright i think, although i thought that on the original and i got a U so meh. Only time will tell.

same at my school. If you talked to your head of year, or who ever set-ups the timetables, you may be able to work something out.

Well, if you're absolutely committed to doing English, then I won't try to change your mind. But heed this - it is different from GCSE. There's a lot of new technical terminology and alot of detailed analysis if you want a top grade. That said, your two coursework pieces are completely open as far as content goes so it's great if you're creative, and there's always some fun when it comes to Language and Gender.

I know the feeling. I was forced to pick between my two loves of Latin and Music at GCSE. I figured the Latin course was a once-in-a-lifetime thing and I'm primarily a self-taught composer anyway, but that didn't make it much better.

I think the best thing is to just badger the teachers. It's not really fair. Although that does surprise me somewhat, since from four groups when I selected A levels, English language had a slot in three of them.

If there's anyone that needs a revision timetable, I've put mine as a template online. I've also made it in a two week style formation so I don't get bored of doing the same thing every week.

Go here (http://www.esnips.com/web/tom7rebornsOtherStuff) to download the file and then follow the title that says "Revision Timetable Template".

What a brilliant thread!

I'm doing my RE Mock Exam on thursday?

Any advice from people who did it last year? :)

Thanks for the links on the first post!

Reggie

I did the R.E. mock exam before christmas. MY best advice to you would be to read the questions carefully and take note of the fact that you should only be choosing one question from each page (you'll be given a choice to choose between two questions). Other than that, if you can back up your point with an opinion and a bit of your own knowledge to explain, you should be fine :)

Bonez
16-01-07, 17:25
Ok thanks. :D

We've been given a sheet about what questions we can choose from. So I guess I need to brush up on the information in those topics. :)
