    Any tips for Year 10 revision? I have eight exams in May/June 2011.

    I've decided to officially start my revision tomorrow, Wednesday 13th April, and do seven hours a day until 26th April. Thoughts please? Here's my timetable....

    7.00am - 8.00am: GCSE Edexcel Geography: The Human Environment

    8.00am - 8.30am: GCSE OCR Religion and Applied Ethics: Philosophy 1

    8.30AM - 9.00AM: BREAK 30 MINUTES

    9.00am - 10.00am: GCSE OCR 21st Century Physics: P4P5P6

    10.00AM - 12.00PM: BREAK 2 HOURS

    12.00pm - 1.00pm: GCSE Edexcel History: USA a divided union? 1945-70

    1.00PM - 2.00PM: BREAK 1 HOUR

    2.00pm - 2.30pm: GCSE OCR Religion and Applied Ethics: Ethics 1

    2.30pm - 3.30pm: GCSE Edexcel Geography: The Natural Environment

    3.30PM - 4.30PM: BREAK 1 HOUR

    4.30pm - 5.30pm: GCSE Edexcel History: Germany 1918-39

    5.30PM - 6.30PM: BREAK 1 HOUR

    6.30pm - 7.30pm: GCSE OCR 21st Century Chemistry: C4C5C6

    Will this be enough? I keep panicking and imagining a mixture of B/C/Ds on my results slip next September!

    I thought that was your exam timetable

    A 2 hour break?
    That seems too long.

    I'd suggest shorter breaks- it's only for a couple of weeks so just bite the bullet and really push yourself. I found 15 minute breaks every hour or so more effective at GCSE.

    I suggest doing 30-45 minute revision sessions, because your brain starts to lose concentration after that. Just do 10-15 minute breaks in between instead if you're so keen on revising that much

    Is this mock exams or real exams?
