    Past papers are KEY
    Try memorise things.
    I do 3-4 hours on school days, if i am busy then 2-3 hours.
    Weekends- 6 Hours is minimum 9 hours Maximum

    Bear in mind it's not the quantity but the quality
    Think of the long term- that is what everyone says but it's rubbish I mean it doesnt motivate me at all.

    i'd recommend doing a revision plan from now up until the end of your exams. it doesnt have to be uber detailed with hour by hour slots. Also, you want to write the units for each subject that you need to study in your timetable instead of just writing 'biology'. If you plan all your revision out, you know what you need to get done and when so you'll be less stressed as to whether or not you'll be able to cover all the content and get practice exam questions done too. Hope this helps.:burnout::burnout:

    Btw did you use flashcards to learn all the content first then past papers, or a mixture of both?

    I did my gcse's in 2011 so this is off the top of my head, I have 12 gcses above grade c and i think 6 of them were either an A or an A* and then the rest B's except for the C i got in english.
