    Hahaha I know those people who are crazy and being fools need to sort out , well it is their lives it is literally up to them How many hours are you planning to do? What do you want to get in your gcse's?
    I'm aiming for 9 A stars. My teachers tell me that I can achieve it if I try because I've been coasting since I've started my GCSEs and I've been getting As and Bs and some A stars.

    I can fluke English Language, English Literature, Business, Drama, French and History. I'll get A stars in those.

    I just need to revise for Maths, Biology and Physics.

    But I'm going to revise for everything in the coming holidays.

    I use the cgp books and go over every single past paper. They can't really ask you a trick question if you know the content. It's just their style of questions and wording that catches people. At least this is what I'm going to do during the holidays. I usually just flick through the book at 6 am when my mock is at 8

    7 hours. I plan on doing way more and that to for 2 weeks. I do agree with you. I can't focus in school much. No one can at the moment. Too many idiots doing funny things because they know that they're going to flop their exams.

    7 hours is just a minimum average - plus it is not about the hours but how effectively your time is used. And yep, school seems to be full of people who don't want to learn and feel like they can wing everything when that is not the reality.

    Yup totally right I hate those people i mean if they don't want to revise then they could let us study -.- really pisses me off but obviously i dont want to cause fights or anything like that so it is better if i leave it
    Going to a mixed school makes it worse

    The cgp books are as condensed as it gets. I don't feel the need to make flash cards. Yes, I do the content and then the past papers and then go over what I need to do.

    Well done and good luck for your exams - how do you manage your time at the moment for revision (as in, before the holidays approach)?

    And is 'fluking' exams the best idea? Wouldn't it be better to have a sound understanding of everything so you can apply the knowledge to various istuations, rather than just wait and see?

    That is true about the fluking thing I mean maybe he is really like immensly clever or good at those subjects but why not just revise
    For example : I recently did a Maths Exam got an A* and was my real exam for gcse but we are doing another one in June and I felt like i didnt need to revise until someone told me that i can get a better grade and the more good grades you get the better

    sorry for interrupting i just had to say Lol
