I'd say Christmas time if all those exams are in May/June. Everyone has different ideas on when though. :sadnod:

the day before the exam, if you are semi intelligent you'll still smash it.

They're GCSEs; half an hour the night before is more than enough

tbh most of the people on tsr are bsing when they say they only did half an hour of revision for gcses, just ignore them

it is perfectly possible to get good grades with that amount of revision, but i wouldn't recommend it. imo around a month/month and a half before exams is plenty if you pay attention in class

CGP revision guides are just the best thing in the world. If you want to do well in an exam, I suggest finding a guide suitable to your subject, and for GCSEs, reading it is more than enough revision.

Taking notes and testing regularly will obviously boost your knowledge, but you can get by with just reading it.

I would make notes as i go along but seriously start revision around Christmas time (only light revision) and do hard core (as in the time you become a ghost) in easter/ February half term if you have time

You're 14, as I've just learned from another thread. Don't correct me on how the OP should revise for exams that I've already sat a few years ago and you haven't. Come back and involve yourself in the discussion once you've sat your GCSEs in a few years time, young one! :rolleyes:

Revising for GCSEs is like revising for the Sunday morning crossword; they're just memory games

So just because I'm fourteen that automatically means I don't know hot to revise for exams? :lolwut: That just sounds ignorant to me :rolleyes:
Your first post was misleading and revising for exams shouldn't be just learning the stuff the night before. You have to do it throughout the year in very small chunks then during exam season. Go over the content a little more intensely :fyi:

Not all of them and that doesn't mean you should just cram the stuff in the night before. :no:

You don't know because you haven't sat these set of exams before. Also, it's one thing to input your own opinion into the discussion, it's another to correct someone who has years worth of experience over you and has actually sat these exams. Listen kid, come back and correct me when the smell of your mothers breast milk has dissapeared from your breath and you don't wet the bed anymore

You really should start revising now doing questions on the things you have already been taught and re-look over your notes when you get home for school as that is the best way for you to actually learn them instead of waiting till about a month before the exam and cramming everything in!
