Agreed. Although I was doing SGs and I'm not sure how they and GCSEs compare, but all I did was brush up on anything I hadn't been paid attention to in class - a lot of my year, me included , spent a lot of time messing around between 3rd year and mid 4th year - and then a couple of past papers for most subjects. Starting two weeks before the exams until the end of the exams (~6 weeks) I estimate I worked every third or fourth day, for a maximum of two hours.. I got distracted frequently.
I thought the exams were fairly easy. Expect 1s but I might get a disappointing 2 in there, knowing my luck.
As long as you have a good grasp on the subject, very little revision is needed, and it is very important not to do too much revision because when you get to A levels, when it really matters, you'll have burned out.
Do as much revision as you feel you need, but don't do anything you'll regret later.

Absolutely. I'm fairly intelligent.
Started physics revision earlier this month for 2 or 3 days, then got bored of it and doing some final prep today for the exam. Hopefully I'll get a decent grade.
hope you'll get a good grade too but if u get bored just try different techniques I used to always get bored revising and leave it too but now I am taking my gcse's a bit more seriously - think of the end result
