    How long before should I start revising for my GCSEs because they are on June the 27th and what is the best way to revise for them. Thank you to anyone who answers 😊

    Now is a good time to start revising!!!

    leave it until the night before...

    just kidding, maybe in the next few weeks

    As someone who didn't revise for my GCSEs until the night before each exam, I feel like I'm not one to talk. But I will talk anyway.

    Sorry to sound like a school assembly, but you should already be well underway with revision. It's best to start after Christmas. It's not that crucial at GCSE, but keep this in mind if you do A-levels.

    My favourite way to revise is to make revision cards. Making them is so much more effective that actually using them. Also I like to copy out all my notes and textbooks. It really depends on what kind of learner you are. I am 95% a visual learner, and 5% kinaesthetic. Find something that works for you personally.
