I have found as I navigate my way through parenting four kids to adulthood is that things definitely do NOT get easier as they get older. Oh, sure, there’s definitely less sleeping/eating worries, and much less cleaning of bodily fluids. But other big stuff comes along and completely knocks your I’ve-got-this parenting confidence sideways.
One of those is the exams. I swear it isn’t THAT long since I took my own exams (listen, if I say it wasn’t, it wasn’t, okay?) – and I did pretty good in most of mine. But in the space between mine and theirs things have changed. Like, a LOT.
Oh, I can still hold my own in a discussion on the themes of Romeo and Juliet. But GCSE Maths contains things I didn’t even know existed when I was 15 (degrees are divided by minutes? Really?). And I only did GCSE Biology (well I did Chemistry too, but I got a D…), so help with the Physics elements of Combined Science? Nup, probably shouldn’t look at me.
Revision Guides are pretty much essential – you can jot notes on them, tie them in to your own class notes, stick post-it notes in, jot notes onto them from YouTube videos…. And these Collins GCSE Revision guides? Clear and straightforward explanations with super-handy concise revision notes – if you cover everything in here, you’ve covered the course.
And on top of that brill Combined Science revision guide, Collins have also added in the essential Atlas, The French Gem Dictionary, their very own ‘Little Book of Grammar Secrets’, and of course the essential pack of highlighters.
