    Well I'd say make the most of the Easter holidays (If you have them).
    Make the most of this time to catch up/ start revision. Don't dive in straight away, just start with some gentle revision like reading the textbook and make brief notes on topics you don't understand so it's not too overwhelming at first and put you off.

    Take frequent breaks and make sure you get plenty of sleep

    Lastly, do past papers! Try to time yourself! Don't feel like you have to do all of the papers. Just do as many as you can and make sure you learn from them in terms of exam technique. It's also a good way to see which topics you need to revise again.

    Good Luck for your exams! :woo:

    DO : Create a list of goals that you wish to achieve by the end of the Easter holidays
    DO : Complete a past paper, pick out areas where you can improve and create a flash card for it. Few days later complete a question on this area again and see if you understand it now. Seeing this improvement can often motivate people.
    DO : Think about the reward ! Imagine exceeding all your target grades and completing the A - Levels/BTEC/Apprenticeship course you want

    DO NOT : Read, highlight and copy out pages and pages from a textbook, this is passive revision and you will not remember it
    DO NOT : Sit there all Easter thinking about your GCSE's (easier said than done, i know) as this will only worry you. Actually get started which is the hardest part about any revision.

    Remember, despite you having exams just weeks after you go back, take a break and give your mind a rest.
    Hope this helps,
    Lee
