    What is the most effective way of revising and is three hours a day enough and five hours on weekends so I would have done 39 hours of each subject I haven't started yet but will start tomorrow is this enough to get all a stars?

    It depends on how you revise. It's better to not simply read but to do things as well like revising off flash cards, doing past papers, etc. What grades have your teachers predicted you to get?

    Honestly, I revised my ass off and it paid off. For my year 10 exams that were end of June I started doing little bits beginning of may (reading over old work) and then built upto doing past papers etc (if any of your exams are AQA a lot of past papers are available free on there). A week before my exam I was able to write keywords on flash cards and remember what it was about.

    Good luck

    you're year 10? there's little point..as those exams count as nothing. Try and enjoy yourself now instead, next year you'll have so much more work, eg GCSE's?

    GCSEs are more of a memory game tbh, not much technique. Your revision schedule seems to be fine, keep it up!

    I know they do!! I'm doing GCSE's and I'm revising like mad. I meant, I thought you were in year TEN? Is it not from year eleven onwards you do your GCSE's...Is this not someone in junior school?

    Um, they're most likely just modules in their subjects? Most people take a few modules in year 10...
