    Hey, i'm aiming for a mixture of A's and B's in my gcse's this year.
    (taking 11 gcse's in total)

    should i start revising after the half-term? (12-22 feb :p: )

    just out of curiousity, how long should i spend revising a day and on each subject?

    should i revise the subjects i'm not so good at first?

    or should i revise subjects such as history from now until the exam? (memorise facts etc.)

    Thanks TSR!

    p.s. +rep to helpful answers!

    My history teacher (a genius) suggested to start lightly febuary half term.

    He said to plan it out into 3 sessions a night (each session no longer than 30 minutes) and at the weekends 6 sessions. Work out what subjects and what area in that subject your gonna do.

    Yes, by the end you will be sick of it but you'll know it really well :-)

    Do the most revision in your subjects you are least competent in. Be disciplined with yourself, and enjoy doing the revision.

    Christ I didnt revise for mine until about a month before, but I suppose if your the academic type then getting information in for the long-term has to only be a good thing so go for it

    in bold: so it's three 30minute sessions of revision a day? 30 minutes for each subject?

    thanks :p:

    You should revise 3 hours a day (Mon- Sun), covering 4 subjects, therefore 4 sessions( each session 40 minutes long, and 5 minute breaks between sessions).

    This is what I do

    Do a little but often, go topic by topic working through the subjects you need and the subjects you are weakest in. I would advise starting now but if you know all the stuff then you can procrastinate a little longer.

    History, Maths and other heavy knowledge based subjects should be the first ones you concentrate on as it massively better to do a little for a long time.

    Remember to always take frequent breaks as it prepares the mind to absorb more, according to the Memory Championship people they said you should take a break every 30 minutes or so.

    Don't worry too much about it, just be confident.
