    I was just wondering if I don’t have mentor what should I do ?

    • Hi Ishaq,

      Great question. The first thing I’d do is ask your school to connect you with alumni. It becomes easier to relate to people who’ve been in the same position as you and understand the pressures you face. We are working on putting together a mentorship scheme so please keep an eye out on our Facebook page for more details.

    Hi i am in year 9 and i am so bad at English and i need a big boost.There are 12 sets in english and im in set 10 so please reply asa soon as possible

    • Hi Alisina,

      Thanks for your question and well done for searching for these answers while you are still in year 9. With everything else, there are techniques and tricks you can use to improve. However, English and other languages can be quite tricky if you don’t have a natural aptitude for them. Have you tried tutoring?

    I dont know if i should purchase this book because i have really runnish memory and have tryed everything to make it better, will this help?

    • Hi Immy,

      Thank you for your interest. We have a great memory technique in the book called the scribble technique which has helped thousands of students remember/understand even the most difficult information. To put things into perspective, I used the scribble technique to revise for a Biology exam during second year A-Levels. It took me about 3 weeks to revise for it and finished around mid September. I started revising for other exams and didn’t touch the module for about 3 months until we had a random mock paper test in class. I scored 62% in that test – the highest in the class. After skimming over the textbook and completing past papers 3 days before the exam, I bumped up my final exam mark to 96%.

      I had the same success with many other exams during A-level and also at university. Many other students who have read the book have also given great feedback on the method – check out our Amazon reviews!

      I hope this helps,

    • Hi,

    I have the 2015/16 book from my sister and have read it the whole way through. I loved it!!! however I’m doing the 2017/18. Shall I repurchase the book? How different is it? Is there an updated version?

    • Hi Enis,

      No there is no need to repurchase the book. We made changes with some of the examples, grading system and some updated research. However, the core principles are the same.

    Hi, i was wondering what subjects you cover in this book? As maths and science are key subjects i NEED to be studying, with my maths target grade is an E and science being a D 🙂

    • Hi Emma,

      We categorise all subjects into 3 areas:

      1. Memory & learning
      2. Method & Understanding
      3. Written prose

      We then provide a strategy for each of those areas. The study techniques described are great for the sciences and other subjects where you need to memorise a lot of information.

      I hope this helps!

    I have been getting E’s and U’s in all of my mocks but I am predicted A’s and B’s in my actual exams. I’m struggling to understand what I’m doing wrong and I hope that this will help me to understand what it is I’m doing wrong and also to reach my predicted grades!

    • Hi Elana,

      Thanks for ordering my book and I hope it helps! Please feel free to ask any questions on here and I’ll be happy to help.

    Hi, it’s Sam.. I really need this book as I’m not doing as well as I set out for at the start of your ten, im now in year eleven.. This book will help me because I’m predicted C’s in everything and unfortunately I have been hitting below by a little bit..

    • Hi Sam,

      Thanks for dropping us a message and for your interest in How to ACE Your GCSEs. It’s great that you’re looking ahead. Like you, at one point, I too was predicted C/D grades. In fact, I rarely saw grades higher than a B in class tests, mocks and actual exams. Achieving good grades was a difficult puzzle back then. However, now looking back, I understand why I continuously underperformed. There are a number of reasons but it started with ignorance. I didn’t truly understand what I needed to do on a daily basis to achieve good grades. It took me years of crap grades, heartache and failure to realise what I had to do. Eventually, I had a strategy that I believed in and that worked continuously through college and university.

      My advice? Start this year with a study strategy and get some sort of plan down on paper. Then try to execute that strategy in the first few weeks without second guessing whether it was working or not. It’s the very least you can do!

      I hope this helps.
