I'm currently going to year 9 this September and at school teachers have said the GCSE curriculum starts from September. I have big ambitions of being a heart surgeon and becoming a millionaire through marketing and investment or just being a really good experienced surgeon. I'm doing 10 subjects. (I was in the top 50%,so I got chosen to do 2 extra subjects)I will sit 11 exams.(2 papers of English) Following subjects are:

Maths
English language
English Literature
Biology
Chemistry
Physics
Religion
Geography
French
Classics
Electronics.
I'd like to get 11/12 A* stars and I'm doing pretty well in school right now. Is there anything I can do to prepare for these exams?
I struggle with memorizing information and do get stressed out often.

Best wishes,

Hi Littlepop1,

Here are some revision tips:

1) For each subject, get a copy of the specification, so that you can tick off each topic as you learn it - this is especially useful for science and maths where there are lots of different concepts to learn.
2) Make revision notes as you are going along and update them regularly, in whatever format you like best, e.g. mind maps, flow charts, bullet points etc. I've just finished my A Levels and I personally like to type up notes for each subject in Word documents, so that I don't need to waste time flipping through lots of books and folders trying to find information when revising - instead I can go straight to the Word document the information is on.
3) A great way to revise is to have a go at past paper questions for each subject and compare your answers with the official mark schemes. This way you can identify any weak areas and check that you understand the material properly.
4) Stay on top of your work and try not to let it pile up as it can get overwhelming fairly easily.
5) Leave yourself plenty of time to revise before exams and don't leave revision to the last minute - leaving it too late is surprisingly easy to do unfortunately and leads to lots of unnecessary stress.
6) Take regular breaks from revision so you don't get overwhelmed with information. Try not to make the breaks too long though so that you can keep your motivation going and stay in the right frame of mind to revise.

I hope these are helpful for you, and good luck
