How to revise a GCSE in one dayWatch this thread
Edit: Something I forgot to add earlier- I have already revised Biology GCSE. I am not starting from scratch
But if you do have to, I suggest you use the specification.

So I'm planning to cover the whole of Biology GCSE tomorrow, hopefully. I'm confident that I know all of it, but I want to go back over it for a final time to really cement this knowledge. Any tips on how to do this in a day? Reading over it doesn't really work for me.
If you have a revision guide, do the questions at the end of each topic. Do tons of last papers to see if you do indeed have any gaps in your knowledge. I'm at a similar stage to you, except I'm just going over Unit 2 at the moment, since that's my first Biology exam. Anyway, I think this is the best way to surely 'cement' it. If you can't answer a question properly, then just make notes on that area. Again. Past papers.

Probably not gonna happen in one day. I've been doing B2 and B3 for the last 3 days ugh
If you have access to loads of past paper questions which are topic specific, like me, then that's what I'd do. Revise your stuff then answer as many exam questions as possible.
Out of curiosity, how do you have so many past paper questions? I've printed off all the past papers online, yet I still don't have that many
I revised for my entire Physics GCSE in 3 days and ended up getting 98%.
- use the SPECIFICATION to make notes
- HIGHLIGHT the notes straight after you've done the topic to cement it in your head
- if you have time, then do some past papers
- wake up early on the day of the exam and read the HIGHLIGHTED bits of all your notes. (works best if your exam is in the morning) Best of luck x
I did the full GCSE chemistry course yesterday. However, I did revise for about 8 hours (with breaks )! I made brief notes on each subject and did all the questions in the book. I got a few wrong - but I just revised them again and again until I got them all correct. I would suggest doing it in chunks like I did, eg, 2 hours revision, 30 minute break and again and again. Also, get up early at about 7 and eat a good breakfast as it will help you revise. Finally, you should do all the past papers.
