    [QUOTE=FlyingBird;62905287]How much and what kind of revision are you doing?

    So far I have just done odd bits- flashcards, notes and mind maps but from tomorrow I have a checklist for everything I need to complete. I will start with note taking and flashcard learning but in about two weeks time I will move on to mostly past papers.
    Do you have any tips on other things I could do, I am still finishing off planning out my checklists.

    So today is my last day of my 1 week holiday😩. I am getting more nervous about GCSEs each day, and I don't know if I am doing enough revision. This week I have completed 20 hours of revision and my full revision schedule kicks in from tomorrow (12 weeks until the first exam.) I am in the process of creating revision checklists on each of my subjects, but I am worrying whether I am planning enough revision or not. In two weeks time I am going to begin doing morning study sessions before school, because although I love sleep you have to make sacrifices to succeed!
    Tomorrow after school I am going to do a P2 test and then write notes on B1 Topic 1. After that I need to do more on my PE coursework because if I get full marks in that then it will ensure I get a good grade.
    I am going to update this tomorrow and see if I can stick to my goals!

    Today I got home from school at 4 10 and did a B2 past paper. I then had a 20 minute break until 5 30 and put my dinner in the oven ready to come out at 6. I spent 30 minutes doing literally nothing, ate my pasta bake and then got back on with revision at 6 30. At 6 30 I did a C2 and a P2 past paper until about 10 to 9. I didn't do my French or PE as I planned to and I have held off geography revision until form time tomorrow (The test is 4th lesson.)

    Tomorrow I want to:
    6-6 45 B1 T1 science notes.
    4 30-5 30 PE coursework
    5 30-6 French Speaking Exam practise.

    So yesterday and today we're both unsuccessful😩😡. Yesterday I did 30 minutes of PE coursework, which I was going to do more of today but I managed to leave my memory stick somewhere in school😤. Today I did.... Ermm....Nothing😱😱. I am slightly annoyed with myself but I am just too stressed to even care right now.

    Memory sticks are designed to be lost! I'm forever losing mine too. (Almost lost it this afternoon actually) Everyone needs days off to re-calibrate. Besides you've done loads of other things this week. You don't want to burn out before the actual exams,

    I know, it's so frustrating because I knew excactly what I could be doing with my time but I just didn't.

    I hope your French speaking goes well too, I hate them so much more than the writings...

    Thanks, I don't mind them as such for some reason. Everyone seems to be panicking about it but I am feeling fine.

    You're lucky then. Pronunciation is the tricky part for me.

    Yesterday I had the most productive day so far! (Not being sarcastic there,) I was out in the morning but did revision/ general school work from 3pm-8pm.
    Today I just completed a B1 test and got 77% meaning an A- massive improvement from last time. Tonight I need to work on my French speaking for a few hours, complete section 4&5 of my PE coursework and maybe go over my B1 exam and write some notes on topics I struggled with.
    I want to put my timetable for each day, so I can check my levels of productivity, and anyone who is interested can have a look.
