    I hate revising...
    I'm in Year 10 and have one GCSE to this year and am struggling to revise for that!
    How the hell am I meant to do my GCSE's?

    If you don't know how to handle all the revision you're expected to do, check out this thread for loads of tips if you haven't already -> http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...2&goto=newpost (coincidentally mine was the last post)

    I'm not telling you to read all of it but there are some good ideas there. I highly recommend buying textbooks as soon as possible and as you learn topics in your subjects, revise even if it's just a little bit every day. It's amazing how lost you'll feel when it comes to tests if you haven't been doing work at home.

    Don't stress and don't overdo it. If you have any concerns then you're free to ask teachers of connexxions advisor for help (if you have one in your school) plus you've got TSR which I'm finding to be quite nice.

    I can't tell you how you're "meant to do" your GCSEs, you've got to find the best method for you. Simply start by reading over what you did in school when you get home whether it's in a book, BBC Bitesize, TSR or wherever to keep it all fresh in your mind. One thing I can tell you for sure is that the feeling of dread is normal, and trust me, it only gets worse when you're in Year 11 watching the weeks go by. My ICT teacher even says that he thinks the GCSEs are one of, if not, the most stressful times of our lives because there's pretty much no way around them. Don't let the stress get to you and keep your head above the water. If they offer sessions at school during lunch, before or after school, go to them. You'll be surprised at how many people turn up to them (or at least I was)
