The General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) is a qualification which students sit at the age of 16. Most students are entered for 8-10 subjects at GCSE although there are some schools where individual entries number 12 or 13 subjects. University admissions tutors and employers are more likely to be impressed by the more moderate range of good grades which show application and commitment.

There is quite a lot of work in each GCSE so it's always advisable to plan for that and make sure you can cope with the workload. In the vast majority ofschools GCSE Maths, English Language and Science are compulsory and the other subjects you will be entered for will be options that you choose from a range offered by the school (in some establishments a language is also compulsory and in others, Religious Studies too). All in all it's worth taking a lot of time in Yr 9 identifying those which you have to take, and then finding out as much as you can about the others before choosing your options.

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • Compare the representation of class and status for 3 music videos

    "Conclusion These Three videos are all good to compare because the situations are similar in the way that everybody is portrayed to be either high or low in class and status through camera angles, lighting ect. But they all have different story lines. Nelly is trying to get her husband out of her mind, JK is in rehab and the people in the Wiley video are getting through a day in the office. They all compare well in how different status and classes can be used in different situations. Jamiroquoi is high in status while Nelly is high in status but lower than the other people in the video and although Wiley isn't actually in his video, his puppets do a pretty good job of showing that he is high in status."

  • Compare the ways in which the two film openings present their characters and themes, and set up the basis for the story of the whole film.

    "I think that the opening of the more modern version appeals to me more, as I find it very interesting to see the clashing of setting and language working so effectively. The repetition of the prologue was also very good, as it made the opening much more memorable than Zeffirelli's version, something which is key for a good film."

  • Analyse and comment on the effectiveness of the media devices used to present war in sections of Braveheart and Saving Private Ryan.

    "In conclusion I would like to state that both films used their techniques effectively with the wanted effect imposed on the audience. Also, that the use of the camera shots was cleverly organised as they clearly let the audience know what was going on in every one of the scenes in both films. Also, the realism made the films seem more appealing as it made it seem as though it was the complete truth."
