    Hiii! I just wanted to say that I've been reading this blog (managed 11 pages so far - mostly just reading your tips and skimming everything else) and I must say I'm impressed! :awesome:

    You're doing so well, especially considering this is only GCSE's. I can't believe I'm not even doing a fraction of the work you're doing and I'm doing AS Levels and doing way worse than you! Yikes! For my GCSE's, I on started revising 2 weeks before the exams and just copied all my notes out and it worked but it won't work for AS.

    May i ask how you manage to fit in 2-3 hours on a school night? Do you not get homework, or not have to do chores or do you work in all your lunches or what?

    I wish you the very best of luck in all your GCSE's and hope you get the results you want!

    Sorry about rambling so much - I talk too much

    In terms of hours, I do anything between 3-6 depending on school and other commitments (but that is with breaks and well-spread out).

    In terms of techniques, for a subject like science I will make flashcards and mindmaps. I also use past paper and then make notes on the topics I struggle with. For English I make character profiles and do past papers. For maths I just do as many past papers as I can find. For other subjects I do past papers, use textbooks to make notes and use flashcards to constantly test myself
    how do you mark your English past papers?

    hope you had a brilliant birthday

    Thanks for you reading my blog and I'm impressed you've gotten to page 11! This thread is soooo long (Page 19-20 might have some useful revision tips)

    I manage to do 2-3 hours because firstly, you're right, I don't do the chores and secondly, I work through my lunches and break times
    What AS levels have you chosen to do?

    I wish you the best too, with all your AS exams

    Hi there, thanks for reading my blog - Good luck for your GCSEs

    For motivation, just remember why you are doing all this, and also, when you do get a sudden burst of motivation to study - make the most of it because you may be surprised

    Normally I would take them in to school and get a teacher to do it - I use past papers more as a way to make sure I go over content rather than look at the way I write

    And thank you I have

    Yeah I completely understand - and I am in the process of really considering it all.

    And I ain't doing it because of the university, I just genuinely wanted to see if I could do it and I am interested in the subjects anyways
    That's good, you revise a lot anyway and you're super-motivated, so - I don't see why not.
    Good luck

    Haha, thanks, I'm on page 18 now! and I know, there's like 124 pages now but I'm reading this thread when I usually have nothing else to do like when I'm on the bus or waiting for class or whatever.

    OHHHH, I see, no wonder you can squeeze in 3 hours a night.

    Biology, Chemistry, Maths and History (so 2 are the same as the ones you want to take )

    Thanks! I'll need it!

    They're actually quite good but that is dependant on your examining board.
