Right so I've started revising for my 10 gcses and 1 as today (did some revision before but can't remember much). My revision basically consists of me making notes, reading notes and testing myself. The plan is that when I've finished with the notes, I'll just do past papers until the exams. While I think this is a good plan, I have a slight dilemma.

When I write notes, I take a long long time (as in, one topic in RE takes 10 mins so a unit; ie 3.1, would take 2 hrs... and a topic in history takes 20 mins). By my calculations, I haven't enough time to revise everything before my exams. I tried just reading but my retention rate is crap then...

I think it would be best just to do past papers in maths and units 1 and 2 for all three sciences (unit 3 is in june, so i have time during half-term) as they are my best subs.

Any ideas how to speed up revision?

Thanks for all help

essentially, for sciences, I try to write notes but this takes at least 15 mins per page for me to make sufficient notes. Should I just read through the cgp revision guide and do past papers??

I wouldn't make notes on everything but when i revise sciences i usually do all the questions from the textbook (took a couple from school lol) then i read the specific topic in the cgp books. Also don't calculate the amount of time you have left. I did and if i took that time seriously i would be screwed. Take your time ensuring that you've understood what your revising because there's no point in just making notes. I've got my exams too, good luck mate!
