GCSE courses have a lot of benefits for aspiring students, and it does not always have to be expensive. The prices you pay are wholly invested back into your exams and qualifications, to give you the best service available. The exam fees contribute to extra educational material to provide and aid both students and teachers.

Some places will only charge you the fee of the individual test paper, whilst others will expect an admin fee or other contributions to manage room hire and invigilators. The cost of taking private GCSE exams range typically between £30 to £100, dependable on the specific GCSE’s you wish to take. Better rates are available by asking around different centres.

Pacing yourself is very important. Therefore, taking an hour or two out of each day to revise is more than enough. You don’t want to cram! For each half-hour, set a timer for 25 minutes. Focus on your scheduled subject for the whole 25 minutes, and then relax with a 5-minute break.
Make a timetable
A revision timetable is key. Planning one week at a time will help organise your subjects into a much more realistic way of learning. Your teachers will have planned revision for the exams so it’s useful to insert that in your revision timetable as well.
You control the pace, so start with subjects that mentally challenge you and persevere through them first. It helps to tackle the hard stuff in the earlier process by taking out key components and solving through tough questions resourcefully. As you approach exam time, subjects you find easy will be much quicker and easier to learn.
Practise, practise, practise!
Closer to the exams, it is advised to spend more time learning through past papers and exam questions. Taking time to complete a paper in accordance with the real thing will help ease your exam nerves and get you focused more on the questions so you can answer them to the best of your knowledge and efforts. Mimicking any sort of exam situation will help you face the real assessment with a much sharper and clear mind.

Tackling questions in a tired state can be quiet distressing and makes you lose focus more. It is fundamental that you get your rest for a better, improved outcome in the exam.
