    GCSEs are coming up and I'm stressing out! There is only 30 something days left and I haven't revised. Everytime I think about doing revision I end up thinking about exams and getting so freaked out that I don't revise. I need to get my head in the right mind set. Is there any tips about how to get your self to revise.

    Maybe do some past papers to identify your weaknesses and then focus your revision on those things...it's not too late! What grades are you hoping for?

    Well I'm getting Cs and Bs. It's not amazing. Honestly I'm aiming for at least all Bs and some As my options are open to C or above. I just want to pass and to do that I need Cs and two Bs. But I think Im Stressing to much which has put some of my grades down a little but Thanks for the tip I will try it .

    Its best not to stress out, try going to the library or somewhere quiet and revising. A timetable may help so you know what to revise for and for how long include breaks because working for too long will only cause you to procrastinate and not fully focus.
    Past papers are a very good idea, attempt to go as far back as possible because most of the time the examiners tend to recycle questions or just rephrase them
    All the best of luck hope your exams go well
    On the day of your exam as well as the night before don't bother revising it'll all be forgotten and make sure to have a good breakfast to provide you with the energy you need
