    Disappointingly, the time spent on revision has been almost none. Any ideas as to how I can make the most of the weekend?

    You're screwed because you haven't revised for mock exams?

    That's kind of like being screwed because you haven't packed any wooly jumpers for a trip to the sun.

    Well, slight exaggeration. I started early, almost forgot everything and done barely any in the last two weeks.

    Hey, The worst thing you could do at the moment is cram every thing at once. You need to look through some past papers and as mentioned in a previous post, really focus on the areas your not as confident on. Your not gonna get everything into the weekend so a timetable is really gonna be your best friend over the next few days. Hopefully You learn something for when your actual exams start...

    See I don't learn to forget; when I learn or revise, I don't forget things, so I prefer to start early, giving me time to revise everything, knowing I won't forget the things I did earlier.

    I did no revision on my gcse mocks and only failed 2 things. Turned out to be irrelevant when it came to doing the actual GCSEs where I didn't fail anything. People panic about mocks unnecessarily.

    When done right, cramming works so well at gcse. If it can work for actual gcse exams, it'll work for mocks. It just takes dedication and organisation tbh. Also, people cram using past paper questions and mark schemes, so if OP were to cram like this, he/she would be doing what you're suggesting, but just more of it.

    Read through the spec, see what you know. Revise over notes and go through past papers. Read through the spec again and if you have to, repeat the exam questions you've just answered to so you get the hang of how to answer them. Tbh, you should've started ages ago - but then again, I did the same thing when I did my GCSEs lol
