    Hi there, I've done a few but I understand what you mean. I have planned out when I am going to do every available paper so that they are spread out and I don't use them all up before-hand
    Thanks for the reply and that's so clever! Have you allocated it all on a calendar, like one a week?

    Yeah I use Google Calendar and if say there are 8 papers available I'll divide it by the weeks I have left, if that makes sense

    They can be good but I personally don't use them. I think I'm more inclined to just know the content rather than what the examiners what - I find this out from the mark schemes

    I don't at the moment but when I start them for the GCSEs in the Easter hols, then I will be doing at least 1 preferably 3 papers per day. I'm going to do my weakest subjects as a priority and then the easier subjects when I want something less taxing.

    well my first exam is ICT and we haven't even been given any past paper details so we can find them which is annoying. But when I do, I'll use them and the day before the exam will go through past papers with the mark scheme and use this to further identify any weaknesses, but then on the morning before the exam I will read through my notes or use any flashcards if I manage to make any

    What do you plan to do?

    Sure

    This is for the week when I am off school for Easter, but when it gets closer to the day I will divide the time up into each section of past papers, notes etc

    Ah yeah I forgot about them

    Most of them are just links to the exam boards for past papers but there are some like for languages which are Quizlet and Atantot. For History I have bitesize and for Geography a site called Ace Geography has loads on case studies

    I have another screenshot of my calendar for yesterday, so you can see how I planned it out more specifically
