    It's imperative for me to know the importance of stepping up revision. Inevitably, though, a short stint of motivation will end; how can I ensure that I stay motivated? I don't want to be left behind by you lot, I want to stay on track! I claimed that I would start revision around four or five months in advance but, of course, this hasn't happened; revision shall recommence tonight.

    How many hours are you doing a day currently?

    Would you be willing to share some revision resources for: Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Computing, English Language, English Literature, Geography, Mathematics, Physics, Religious Studies and Spanish?

    Thank you in advance. Good luck this summer!

    How many hours are you doing a day currently?
    2 hours on weekdays and 5 hours weekends. Wish I could answer your other questions

    I did my GCSE's two year ago so I've got some advice that I know works.

    1. Prioritise. I knew to get into college I needed 5 A - C grades so I picked 6 GCSE's (one was a reserve) I knew I would achieve well in (including maths and english) and decided these were my priorities. I focused most of my revision on these and revised much less for the others.

    2. Work out which way you revise best. I found out I remember things best when I hear and see them so I watched a load of you tube videos instead of re writing notes. I also forced family and friends to quiz me.

    3. Staying motivated is easiest when you're revising with someone. By working together you can get things done faster and when you don't have the answer they usually do. I had a friend who did most of the same classes who I revised with.

    4. As for how much do you do? I think I did 1.5 hours a night, 4 - 5 hours on a Saturday and then took Sunday off.

    Good Luck!
