    It's now only 4 weeks until my GCSEs start, and I haven't exactly done a lot of revision yet . What can I do to make sure that I get all of my predicted As and Bs in all of my 13 exams?

    It's GCSE. You don't need to revise.

    If you're really worried though, 4 weeks is enough time, just start now.

    Seriously, kick yourself, pick up a textbook, paper and a pen and start. Once you get going it's much easier, trust me.

    Then there are spider diagrams, tables, highlighting notes, reading notes, talking it over with a friend, past papers etc.

    experiment a bit.

    Thank you - all of these comments from people are great. I will definitely be taking all of these into account. Plus, I need to read all of "To Kill a Mockingbird" in a month. Is there anywhere where I can download a free audiobook version other than from Librivox - I concentrate better when I'm reading and listening.

    Thanks - I was thinking of doing past papers, and I only considered doing Powerpoints until now. How many exams have you got?
