    Hey, so lots of people have been telling me that to get really good GCSE grades (mainly A*s with some As) I need to start revising now, but ik it sounds silly and everything, but idk how?
    In year 10, I made notes and mindmaps for all of the topics I covered, and have done the same thing this year so should I just be re-reading them?
    It seems a bit early to do past papers, and for some subjects (like my iGCSEs in French and Spanish) there is only 1 set of papers so I knida want to save them?
    Does anyone have any tips on what I should be doing? Thanks
