    I'm really hoping for high A's (AAAA). So far, I just had my Mock results 2 weeks ago with CCEF
    Biology "C", Maths "C", English Language "E" and Chemistry "F" .
    I'm planning to start studying everyday from now on, but how long do you think is ideal to study everyday, 2-3 hours. what about breaks? is 15 - 30 minutes enough?
    I've got 12 papers to sit on May/June, including Edexcel IGCSE English First Language A.

    You don't need a schedule just study as much as you can. You'll feel it when you need a break or aren't productive anymore.

    I suggest making a revision timetable and doing an hour a night, picking a different subject each day. Also, make sure you put in a 5 minute break after every 20 minutes, good luck hope this helps

    Don't stress yourself out. A lot of people tend to do bad in mocks. I am currently predicted a B in A2 Biology and in my mock I got an E. That was probably due to not doing a ton of revision for it and having a lot of other things that were more important, such as interviews and coursework, to think about. So I am not overly worried.

    If you are worried get some kind of revision guide book and set a plan with that. Last year I did one double spread of revision for each topic a day so that I knew I would have done all needed revision before my exams as well as having some extra time to do past papers.

    If you are going to get a revision book however, make sure that you also use your class notes as often the notes you take in class have a lot more detail than in the revision guide, the detail you need in order to get the higher grade.

    Good luck I am sure you will do fine.

    Hi don't worry about mocks as much! Just do something everyday for each of your subjects, and continue focused.I was predicated a c/d for history and ended getting an A in for AS!
    Also, try to do past papers and ask your teachers to mark them, gradually you should improve and become more confident.

    I got AAAC in my mocks, A in history, A in english combined, A in maths and C in photography. For me, putting a time on revision is ineffective as you focus more on time than on the work. Just do so much so that you are regularly getting the grades you want in past papers, that's what I do.
