    Hi there,
    How many of you are only starting revision now? If you are, how much do you plan to get covered? How many hours do you plan to revise each day?

    Thanks in advance

    Well GCSE's aren't really meant assert an "hardcore revision" period for you, but you should do as much and early revision as possible to attain the top grades. Im focusing more on English Lit, Lang and Geography (content heavy subjects) and I hope to do 6 hours a day. Then ill go straight to sciences and maths. Core subjects first!

    I have my AS exams(year 12) exams right around the corner and have done hardly any revision so far. I hope to get quite a lot done over Easter break.
    This may be helpful :
    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 getting onto your next course (sixth form, uni, apprenticeship etc)

    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 exams (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,
