    Need some help before i start year 11 next month

    It's not that bad at all. Just start it as if it was any other year and then adjust to what you have been told regarding your revision and exams etc.

    What do you need help with, specifically?

    Firstly, you need to find or what type of learner you are and use revision tips for that learning style.Get the specifications of all your subjects;it tell you exactly what you need to know for the exam so you don't waste time learning what you don't need. From the spec make notes or flashcards then keep on going over it until you know it.If you're a visual learner posters and diagrams may also help. If you're an auditory leaner you can make your own mini pod casts and listen to it on the bus or whenever you're free.The most important thing is to do past papers. For essay subjects like history learn how to structure your answers for top marks. For science based subjects you need to memorise all the answers you got wrong...they recycle the questions,so if you memorise the mark scheme answer you won't get it wrong again.
