    So I've got a holiday of 2 weeks and 3 days coming up and I've got 13 GCSEs to do from the 3rd May to the 24th June.

    Those who have already done GCSEs:

    How long did you revise for per day during this period and what were any techniques you used?

    Current Year 11s:

    How long are you planning to revise for, and when did you start revision, if you have already?

    During my revision through GCSEs, I got all books on the subjects, I revised each subject probably an hour each ( with breaks in between ) and shared out through the week. However much you can without being fed up😊 make sure to remember - stay hydrated, still do fun activities to unstress & make a revision timetable! Or I would suggest the app pomodoro.

    I have done all my homework since September and bits of revision but I didn't start properly revising until early February. For the Easter Holidays, I plan on doing all my homework (which is 8 past papers and then some other stuff) and then I plan on doing a few past papers and around 6 hours+ a day on top, depends on what I'm doing. I'm probably going a little heavy, and I know loads of people are having breaks for a few days but I just wouldn't be able to relax knowing there's so much revision to be done so yeah I'm going to plow through with revision

    For GCSEs, my form teacher said we should revise 6 hours a day, but I'd say 4-6 hours a day depending on how busy you are. Remember as well to have regular breaks, if you do let's say a ninety minute chunk of revision all in one then you'll be sick and tired at the end of it. I did 40 minutes with 10 minute breaks in between but I guess you could go up to an hour.
    Hope this helps!

    I'm planning on being in school for most of my holiday as I'm super lucky with the teachers I have. I'm going in for revision so I think that's me covered

    Your teachers allow you to go into school and be taught by them during the holidays?
    Wow, that's lucky!

    Yeah, I'm practically in school for most of my holidays! I know I'm honestly blessed with the teachers I have this year!
