    Hey, I would say that revising might be a tad too early, even if your year is starting the new (and more difficult, I'm assuming) GCSE specification. Most people start revising for their GCSEs from year 11.

    Having said that, I don't think it would hurt for you to start revising earlier - it might even help in the long run, but if I was in your situation, I think I'd just make the most of year 9 by doing things I might not have time to do later, like joining clubs.

    If you revise in year 11 how are you going to get 100% in your exams

    It depends largely on what kind of learner you are too, I suppose. If you really do think that you won't do well unless you revise much earlier, then I guess you could start earlier.

    Even then, I really do think that revising in Year 9 is too early.
