    Hi everyone,
    Currently i am a year 11 student, taking my GCSE. I am currently working at a mixture of A, A* and some B grades. But when taking my recent mock in school, i have noticed that my grades have gone down because of my poor time management. My problem was that i didn't know how to revise for all 9 subject, then to take the exams in a one week duration for all of them. Some exams are taken in the same day but i am really struggling about how to manage my time.
    Don't be afraid to give me any suggestions or how you guys manage your time to study for all of the subjects.
    Thank you so much, i am very grateful if anyone can help me resolve this.

    HI
    I was in the same situation, and one of my friends told me to make a revision time table and it really helps
    you could also make a list of things you need to do and tick them of straight after you've done them

    Firstly, I think you should make sure you have an early start. Getting things done at the beginning of the day is a whole lot better. For example, if you wake up at 8am and study unit midday, then you'd have done almost 4hrs and the day hasn't even properly started!! Plus, it just makes you feel good about yourself which is helpful during revision periods.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...fUCan&hl=en_GB Download this app to ensure that you wake up on time on revision days and don't sleep through your alarm. It hasn't failed me as of yet. :lol: (make sure you click "take a picture" in the settings option)

    Organisation is also pretty esssential, in my opinion.

    https://getrevising.co.uk/ - Go on this website to make your revision timetable. Then ...stick to it! It's v helpful.

    Distractions are awful and a lot of students seem to have a problem with it, so don't think you're alone if this happens to you too bc you're not. :five:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...oroTimer&hl=en Download this app to ensure that you don't get distracted.

    Finally, good luck. :borat: I hope you manage to sort it out, if you need any help with your GCSEs then feel free to PM me as I might be able to help.
