How to manage revision and past papers for exam?

Report Thread starter 6 years ago
I am stressing out right now. I have my GCSEs and they start may 13th. I want to revise for all 3 sciences (I do triple science) but I don't know how to schedule my revision. I have made so many timetables and they won't work.

Should I do a week of B1-B3, C1-C3 and P1-P3 revision then past papers, then same for B4-B6, C4-C6 and P4-P6? Or should I just revise this whole month and start doing loads of past papers next month, April?

I tend to leave past papers until the last 2-3 weeks before the exam. It's not too late, so don't stress out. You could go through C1, B1 and P1 at the same time, then additional, then triple. Don't overwhelm yourself.

If it helps, break down all the tasks you need to cover weekly rather than on a whole. For example, make a list which says that you need to cover ____ topics from P1/C1/B1, additional or triple, in this week. Also, look at mygcsescience on youtube!

I can also start you off, if you like:

This week:

Cover 2 chapters from B1; make notes
Cover 2 chapters from C1; make notes
Cover 2 chapters from P1; make notes
Recap notes and do practise questions from textbook and internet as you go along

This may or may not help, but don't stress out!
