Hi there! I'm currently studying for 10 GCSE subjects and my exams start in 6 weeks. Should I revise multiple subjects at the same time or one subject per time to not mix it all up? What's more efficient?
Well, I would not revise just one subject in one day. I would revise several (e.g. 3) subjects each day, for about 45 mins per subject. Make sure you include some breaks and if you find yourself getting bored or tired, take a break immediately.
You should revise multiple subjects per day instead of just concentrating on one because you might find yourself becoming uninterested and it helps keeping your day varied (but focus on your weaker subjects more).
Nevertheless, if you find concentrating one one subject per day to be more productive, then do it by all means.
P.S. Make sure you spread out your subjects and split your time up into "bitesize chunks"
I like to set targtes rather than a time for example:
Today I will study English by the end I'd like to write 3 paragraphs about a particular theme etc.
Maths I will complete 30 questions from the book
Science I will complete one whole test paper.
That's just me - I find workiung uhnder timed conditons I never go back and finish work when the time is up!
I'm revising here too (got 24 exams starting in less than a month!!) and I basically split my day up with a morning revision session and an afternoon one, with a nice long lunch break in the middle. I'm doing one subject in the morning and one in the afternoon, but splitting the subject up into different topics and spending roughly one hour on each topic.
Then after dinner in the evening, if I'm not going out with friends or family, I'll do practise questions in the topics I did that day to make sure it all went in. Been doing this for about a week now and it seems to be working for me
Just find a routine that you enjoy and can focus in, and stick to it
