How do I make sure I get the best possible grades ? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey, so my kind of mini-dream is to get A's or above in everything, and an odd B or C in the subjects I do not really care about and the ones that will not really affect my future. As this is my second proper week of Year 11, I'd like to start early as we had assembles in school of the Year 11's last year, saying what they could've done better and pretty much all of them were talking about starting revision early. So here I am, wanting to do what they didn't. Any current or past year 11's here that could help me ( and probably a lot of others ) out with this ? Whether it is revision or just general tips on how to get the best possible grades.

    Hello! It's all good and well to start studying early. I think I started studying properly during early january/ late december and came out with 8A's and 2B's Try setting yourself goals for the end of weeks eg using page markers to rule out what sections you want to finish within a set time. Personally for history i had 3 booklets worth of information to learn, each split into 3 sections, so I gave myself a half a week- week per section.
    I'd also write down when your exams are and plan your revision around that revision timetables work with some people as well (I always make them and never stick to them )
