# How much do I need to revise to get a C in GCSE Maths? watch

1. No one can give you a straight answer to this, it really depends on you.

For example, I never revised a day in my life and got an A at GCSE. My best friend revised for 3 hours daily 3 months before exams and got the same.

Your academic ability will define how much revision is required. Download a past paper and take it, that should indicate where your at, then work from there.

FYI, I do not recommend not revising like me. I got lucky, you might not
