If your school is anything like my school, by the time you’re in Year 9, everyone kicks into hyperdrive.
“This will definitely be on your GCSEs, so listen up!”
“Your daughter is very good at [insert subject here]. Is she considering taking it for GCSE?”
“This decision is the beginning of the rest of your life.”
It drives me bonkers, and I imagine it’s even worse when you’re actually doing your GCSEs in a few short months! I can’t even begin to imagine what the stress is like, trying to juggle revising for at least 10 subjects. Luckily, the internet can be a brilliant resource for revision, and there are a lot of websites specifically aimed at GCSE students. With that in mind, I’ve compiled a list of the top 20 GCSE websites that I have found.
