    I'm predicted straight As (though I'm hoping for A*s) and I've only started revising just a week before half term. I revise for an average of 4 hours per day but I always feel like it isn't enough. Also, I feel like I'm being weighed down by subjects like Science, maths and history (subjects I'm taking for A-Levels) and it seems as if I don't have time for all my other subjects. Can you give me some advice?

    Hi there I'm actually a university student and it has been a while since I completed GCSE's . However I remember feeling that the volume of GCSE content was very large. Overall I achieved 10 A*s and an A at GCSE level. The best strategy I developed was using a timetable for my revision. Every day on the timetable would show all the hours I had available for revision that day. This allowed me to equally divide up my hours for revision between all my subjects. For the total hours of revision for one subject I would divide up the subject content into manageable sections. I also completed as many past papers as possible . I hope this helps good luck and if you have any questions feel free to message me

    To be honest, 4 hours a day is a lot!
    Find out how much you know about each subject and pick the ones that you do the worst in/know the least about to revise more on.
