I started studying today. I started studying at 4 (it currently 8:26 where i live) and I am taking a break right now - I plan on doing another 2 chapters of biology before i sleep.

It might seem a bit excessive to study all day, but since i NEED to get all A*'s i intend to do whatever it takes.

When do you plan on starting?

Well technically I have done little bits of bio over the past month but I wouldn't class it as revising. I'd like to think either tonight or tomorrow. I'll do a bit tonight but i'll start properly tomorrow.

Don't study all day. Your brain will stop taking in info

I have tutors for maths and science so i guess they count as revision as they have been helpful, and I've done a little bit of geography and english

This thread makes me feel better about my lack of revision *phew*

Edit: I have no idea why this post is my most liked post on TSR. I can sense that a lot of people are in the same boat :P

How can you revise everyday? I can't because I live far away from my school and I have homework and extra curricular activities after school. Otherwise I spent Sundays doing revision.

nothing yet!

I intend on starting the 31st of March (to be specific...bc it's a Monday!)
I didn't realise it was a normal thing to be revising already, I only know of one of my friends who is revising currently.
I've got my last French speaking exam and my art exam next week as well as the final deadline for my H.E CA so only after that will I have free time to do so!

About 5 Or 6 hours a day plus extra revision sessions every day after school. About 8 hours per day at the weekend and 2 hours extra tuition a week I'd recommend mind maps, practice essay writing, mock exams, revision cards... good luck in your exams!

Alright, I may not be welcome here cos I've already done my GCSEs and I definitely am not here to brag, just giving advice.
So I did my GCSEs last summer, I had 17 exams in total and I started revising in the easter holidays, which were admittedly earlier last year. I made detailed notes using a combination of my own notes, textbooks and revision guides for most of my subjects - and for sciences I CANNOT STRESS HOW GOOD MYGCSESCIENCE IS seriously watch his videos! He's a lifesaver!
Ok so I'll tone it down now... so basically after making notes for the exams I had before may half term I did past papers and marked them - mark schemes are excellent because you see exactly what answers they're looking for - a lot of questions are quite repetitive. During may half term I revised my next set of exams and did more past papers.

Ok so basically that's how I revised - and I got 13 A*s it may not work for everyone - many take a longer time to grasp ideas and so should start revising earlier. Good luck to everyone!!
