Well, I'm a YouTuber doing incredible so far.
The thing is, how can I stop going on YouTube for 3 months? GCSE's are much more important and I want to Achieve an A* in Maths.
I can't follow a schedule where some say make a video once a week, I can't once i'm on it. I'm on it. I take a lot of pride and passion in to my videos and that goes on for ageesss.
I need to somehow STOP going on YouTube. Period.

1) Make a video about you taking a break to do your exams.
2) Focus on your exams.
If your audience is in any way sensible they would understand. If not...I don't see why you'd want to cater for them lol.

It's good that you are thinking about quitting YouTube to focus on your studies. If you want that A*, you're going to need to put in a heck of a lot of time doing past paper questions. My teacher has this cycle for improving in maths that he taught us, which was basically: Do a past paper > pinpoint areas you need to revise > revise (recap) the topic> do questions on the topic > attempt PP question again > repeat. I know that sounds like a long process, but to me it's the best method for improving your knowledge and abilities.
The YouTube problem I can't give too much help on unfortunately. Yes, I would take a break and quit if it sounds as addicting as you say it is. You could even add a chrome extension/firefox add-on that temporarily blocks the site so you cant get thrown back into doing videos.
Just remind yourself: Is it better to achieve high grades, that can get you to good A level courses and good jobs, or to grow something that at the end of the day, won't really impact you that much, and doesn't really have that much of a positive outcome?

Fellow Youtube here who just did the same thing.
First off, it's hard. I admit that, it's really really hard. It gets harder when your growth is getting better, and you have subscribers interacting and leaving positive feedback. That's why you should just STOP. That's why I did, for a few more weeks left
Know that it's not like its forever, its just for a little while. People will understand, we are an understanding folk, remember that.
If you have any other questions in terms of the mechanical impact it will have on your channel, just throw me a PM, it will be my pleasure to chat with you. I'am actually interested in seeing your channel too
