You have loads of time left! Don't panic. A lot of people don't start until the Easter break anyway

We have some of the same exams, so here's some of the stuff I use to revise that I find really helpful:

Maths:

These videos are of a maths teacher going through all past papers. Really good way to see how to answer questions and become more confident on the topics you aren't sure on.
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...gtWdMxJb3VTBeU (Non-calculator)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9V2...d56x2f08JEa2v7 (Calculator)

Here's all of the past papers if you want to have a go at some:
http://qualifications.pearson.com/en/support/support-topics/exams/past-papers.html?Qualification-Family=GCSE&Qualification-Subject=Mathematics%20A%20(2010)&Status=Pearson-UKtatus%2FLive&Specification-Code=Pearson-UKpecification-Code%2Fgcse10-mathsa

RE:

An RE revision channel that's really good at summing up everything you need to know: https://www.youtube.com/user/MrMcMillanREvis

Personally, I find doing past papers and sort of memorising the mark scheme on of the best ways for revising for RE. Here's all the past papers if you want to have a look: http://qualifications.pearson.com/en/support/support-topics/exams/past-papers.html?Qualification-Family=GCSE&Qualification-Subject=Religious%20Studies%20(2009)&Status=Pearson-UKtatus%2FLive&Specification-Code=Pearson-UKpecification-Code%2F2RS01&Specification-Code=Pearson-UKpecification-Code%2F2rs01

English:

Literally all the videos on here are sooooo good for English language. https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...guage+aqa+gcse. I used to be awful at the English exam because I didn't really have a clue what I was doing but these have helped so much.

Again, here are the past papers: http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/engli...d-mark-schemes.

Overall, what I recommend the most is to try and do as many past papers as you can. Especially for English as it's mainly based on exam technique.

Good luck!

You have a lot of time!
Make a revision timetable Count all of the topics/units which you have to learn and slot them into different time periods. You know how quickly you can revise, so give yourself appropiate time to absorb all of the information.

Also practice papers are key so once you have revised, have a go at papers which you can easily access online and are relevant! Keep going over all of the knowledge (maybe make flashcards so you can test yourself?) it's a very good way to ensure that you don't forget the information.

Also look at your specifications online to see what you actually need to know, some of the info in your notes (given by teachers) may not actually be in the spec.

Create goals and targets for yourself which are achievable Also make sure that you take breaks every 25 mins or so (schedule that into your timetable!)

Also make sure that you DON'T procrastinate.

Sleep well, eat well and make sure that you get enough exercise - go on runs/walks during your breaks

I hope I helped and good luck! Aim for as many A stars as possible I am sure that you can achieve

Yeah I completely understand about not having the motivation. I sometimes get that to. However what you should do is think about the end goal. So if you set yourself targets and then you can have the motivation. Idk it works for me as I do work and then I may watch Netflix after and then continue with my work.

Just imagine where you want to be in the future i.e sixth form, college, etc.. and that should motivate you.. or at least it works for me
