    I remember making brief notes on the whole chemistry spec, some parts of physics & a fair bit for history (so many dates to remember!) - however, I'd say just revise until you feel mostly comfortable with each spec

    Also, it's easier to go over everything (and I do mean everything) for your mocks, so you can chill a little when your actual GCSEs come around. In other words, make notes until you're sick of making notes/you have to take your exam/you legitimately know everything off by heart.
    "fair bit for history"

    there's too much....

    I didn't start revising that early. The earliest I started revising for was core science (two weeks before the exam) which was worth it as I got A's in the exam (even though this got dropped down to a B overall because of coursework ) Basically I just revised the whole of the CGP revision guide, I'm not really creative or anything like that when it comes to revision.

    Maths I got a B without revision, however I had a tutor. Though I do recommend you to go through all the topics before your exam and do practice questions.

    English I have no idea how to revise for, never did, hence getting 2 C's for it.
