    I am currently in year 12 and am willing to help if anyone wants some guidance or advice on revision for GCSE. I did geog,history,fine art,maths, spanish and all three sciences.
    1) I'm currently writing my own revision notes for the sciences (1-2 A4 pages for each topic). Is this good?
    2) How should I revise over the notes I've already written? (Should I start going over them now alongside writing new ones?)
    3) When should I have finished writing my notes by?
    4) When should I start doing past papers?
    5) How should I work through the past papers? (should I start doing them open book/ should I repeat them till I know the mark schemes, etc)
    6) Other revision techniques?

    These are a lot of questions but any help would be appreciated

    I will try the best I can 😊
    1)yes that is a good idea as long as you understand them
    2)dont go over them just yet keep adding notes then when it gets nearer to the exam start to refine your notes down to flashcards for example
    3) there is no end point it can be the night before the exam, any notes are useful if done productively
    4) past papers are really useful to time yourself and see how much you remember. I used past papers when i went on study leave.
    5) start open book definately then do it closed and make notes on where you missed out on some marks so you can learn from it
    6) mind maps were my life savier for GCSE (but maybe because I am a visual learner idk).

    I started doing past papers independently at the beginning of study leave but did quite a few within school.

    Yeah so for my revision as you have so much for GCSE i broke each subject down and did about a topic per day per subject (if that makes sense) i gave myself allocated breaks and watched videos from time to time about the topic I was revising.

    Thanks for doing this,
    Im also doing a language but I am doing French. How can I learn french really fast and the get the highest possible grade? (A bit of an open question-sorry!)
    Ok well for GCSE to do well you literally need to learn the text off by heart (sorry thats the harsh truth) you dont really need to adlib at all. So i would say learn your speaking and that kind of helps for everything
