    I wouldn't if I were you. I had mocks in December and revised for most of them the night before and did pretty well. For my real GCSEs I only started revising a few days before my first exam, haha . If you want to feel more prepared though you can start revising in November or October even, but starting now is a little too early and pointless, in my honest opinion. You don't need to revise 24/7 for GCSEs. Just relax while you can.

    I'm starting year 11 too and I will be doing revision, especially Spanish.
    My Spanish teacher is awful, he always pressures you and when you do bad in a test he also puts you down. He even got another teacher involved with me because he always pressures me so I didn't turn up to the speaking exams but luckily the other teacher was on my side and is now helping me with the exams after the Summer Hols...

    just like my year group and the rest of my school in general...but then again I'm not a good mock exam taker...
    Maybe you just need extra help for revision, I'm sure your teachers have your education at their best interests and will help you with the stuff you are stuck on in a particular subject. If you struggle to revise you should ask for help! I did for our history mock on Germany and our really Germany exam is in December so what I done is wrote a list of topics I didn't understand on Germany and my teacher sat down and explained them all in detail and wrote notes etc and now I fully understand the majority of Life in Germany. I fully recommend you ask for help when you start Term 1
