How do I get started revising?? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi! So as I'm sure majority of you are aware, it's around 4 months until GCSE's start!! I am fully aware I need to start revision but I have no idea where to start 😩 I have always revised for mock exams but I just don't know where on earth I should get started to revise for my actual GCSE's!
    I currently attend one hour revision classes for Biology, English and Maths after school, each once a week.
    The subjects I'm studying and the grades I wish to achieve are; (I'm targeted as a straight A student)
    Biology - A (I have an A* already in the ISA)
    Chemistry - A (I have an A* already in the ISA)
    Physics - A
    Maths - A*
    English Lit - A (I have an A already in controlled assessment)
    English Lang -A/A*
    Spanish - A* (I have A's and A*'s in controlled assessments)
    RS - A
    History - A (I already have an A* in controlled assessment)

    If I achieve higher that's even better, but I'll be happy with a few A*'s and the rest A's ☺️ I just have no clue where I start revision from 🤔
    Any tips would be appreciated huge amounts, thank you!

    Just do it . I haven't started either...

    Start with the subject that you dislike the most or the one which has the most work in it. I normally do science first or geography x

    Look at the timetable of the exams and see which one you will be doing first so do it from order of when you do the exams and a mixture of the difficulty of the subject.
