I have my GCSE's coming up, and I was wondering how long before the exam I should start revising.

Someone please help?!

Depending on how much you need to revise... Now, probably.
If you have exams such as French - where you need to learn for a speaking exam, you should start learning answers now.
If you have exams based on set works, such as Music, English or Latin, you should also start revising soon-ish, so that you are familiar with all the works before you start proper revision (past papers, notes, etc.).
And also, if there's stuff you find particularly difficult, get it out of the way now - if you're in the UK, there's a good chance you're on half term as of now - look through your subjects, and come up with a list of high priority revision topics: you can discuss what you find difficult with your teacher when you get back.

But, in terms of hardcore revision... not just yet. Maybe start in about 2/3 weeks.

Well, by hardcore revision, I mean truly focused, staring at revision guides, making notes, or in the case of languages, learning what to say in your oral, etc.
I think on study leave/holidays, good 6 hour days are important- it should be like you're at school, but you're not.

I somewhat disagree about the waking up early idea- well, if it works for you then good: but I'd much rather prefer starting at 10 and going on to 4/5pm.
But anyway, everyone likes to do different things- find out what works for you- ie. how long you can keep interested in a subject, how often your breaks need to be, etc.
