    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

    Hi, I've been reading the thread because I also have GCSEs this summer. I've been putting some work in, but I'm finding motivation really hard! Good luck everyone.

    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.

    Were given board specific OCR and OCR cgp books for science. The cgp news condense the information. That's why everyone uses them.
