    Ok guys so this is how it goes,

    step 1) write your goal first on what GCSE results you hope to get

    step 2) every single day from today onwards you update how much revision you've done (HONESTLY) to get feedback and hopefully motivation from others,to keep track of your progress...you can include how many hours as well

    step 3) well there is no step 3....

    This will hopefully be something extra to keep you calm and carry on

    THIS IS A PHENOMENAL VIDEO TO KEEP YOU MOTIVATED AND REFRESHED

    Thank you - I revise about 6 hours on weekends and holidays, and 3-4 hours on school nights, but I feel like I could do more

    yh make sure you do 50/10 where you do 50 min revision with no distractions and 10 min break continue for 2-3 hours then take a 30 min or 1 hr break works best for me!

    Sciences specifically make up most of my revision at the moment, so I'd say at least 14 hours a week - maybe 2 hours a day, depending on what I am doing in the other subjects
    In terms of individual sessions, I probably do them for an average of 20 mins unless I am doing a past paper

    I've photocopied the contents pages of the revision guide and I tick them off as I do them, but it is generally random, I will pick out a topic I feel least confident about and make notes on it.

    To make science less daunting, you can always record youre voice on a voice recorder and repeat it through headphones and keep repeating it until its all in your head, works best for bio and chem too! for literature as well if you want to remember key quotes or themes
