    Same here. I guess just skimming through the textbook doesn't count. And I have no idea how to make a suitable timetable or how I would ever stick to it

    I don't feel like I need to start revising yet; in most subjects, I'm able to comfortably get a high B or low A without revising.

    True, I fear that I won't get a sufficient amount of A's and A*'s (I'd like to apply for Cambridge) If I remain complacent .

    My predicted grades are A for everything, but I know that with the right amount of effort I can get an A* in maths,sciences, computer science, possibly french and history. (I also have an A* in GCSE Polish, since it's my first language )

    I'm aiming to leave secondary school with at least 4 A*'s at GCSE.

    Well done for achieving an A* already ! I was predicted 6A*s and 4As but there's no way I'll get those unless I make a start now. I just CANT get myself motivated..

    School days (3 hours -usually 2/3 subjects) :

    5:00pm -7:30pm I get all homework done set on that specific day
    8:00pm -9:30pm Revision for whichever subjects I have planned.

    Non -school days (5/6 hours -usually 4/5 subjects) :

    3:00 pm -9 pm

    My target grades are 6 A* and 5 A, and I find sciences hardest.

    As such, I use all my science homework that I get as revision- because I get loads, partly thankfully. If I get a homework to do a past paper, I WILL NOT use the mark scheme, and I WILL treat it as a real test to as much reality as I can. It worked when I got 52/60 in a C1 paper, and I am rubbish at chemistry.

    It's all about finding your weaknesses. Thankfully, I've pretty much already got 4 GCSE grades- one B which I'm trying to turn into an A-A*, one I don't know the result of yet, and French and Maths A*. I'm also on an easy route to an A* in Sociology, so I'm only revising about half of all my subjects.

    In January I stuck to the whole 'one hour each subject' and got through 3 on a weekday and 4/5 on weekend, but I found it didn't work for me as well because sometimes I was just getting the hang of a concept and I would be in routine so it would be like 'right, times up'. Now I just revise each subject until I'm satisfied I've made progress, which is sometimes 30 minutes and sometimes 3 hours, I feel like on a whole this works way better (although I do of course do ALL my subjects within a week - I don't just stick to one so I have some boundaries) because I am getting more stuff done and I'm learning more

    with my mocks i did 1 or 2 a day, maximum 3, and i'll probably do the same for the real ones when i finally start
    doing 6 a day seems kinda pointless, how would you remember everything??

    Is this for GCSE or AS/A Level?
    For GCSE, I started around late April (first exam was May 5th), and did about 4 hours a week. This wasn't due to laziness/etc, but due to a medical condition. I finished with 3 A*s and the rest As. What I'm trying to put forward by saying this, is that everyone works differently. My long-term memory is pretty ****, but I can hold information for short periods (a few days, etc), so I revised close to the exam dates.

    If other people are doing 6 hours a day, it doesn't mean you have to.

    For AS/A Level? **** knows, I'm so far behind I'm ( _ ) this close to dropping out : ) ) ) )) ) )

    6 hours a day is a bit much for GCSE level don't you think?

    For me, I'm focusing on my Art right now and trying to get that out of the way before the modules in June. I've never found revising months early to be effective for me; there is a serious lack of motivation. I have a plan to study 2 hours a night starting from the end of April and 3-4 hours on week-ends.
