    by starting my gcse revision notes now, have I left revision too late do you think? My first exams in may and I normally spend the whole day making notes then memorise them like a day or two before the exam. But is it too late now to start revision for gcses to attain A/A*? if I do start now, how many hours should I do a day?

    No its not late, don't worry. Do about 2-4 hours everyday and take a day off its Still a break.

    Good luck!

    Nope it's not too late. Do a couple of hours a day through the easter and you should be able to still achieve good grades.

    I am committed to revision and with getting the A*/A but I do take about 10-15 minute breaks in between every subject does help a bit with focus. I do get tired but it will be worth it on results day when I have 10 A*/A because I bothered to put the effort in. I have ADHD and this makes life much harder especially with concentration levels but I have just managed it.

    I'm going to be revising everyday throughout these Easter holidays, starting tomorrow. i plan on 4-5 hours a day with regular breaks. I'm predicted all A*'s and one A, but i think i've left revision too late so i might fall short in some subjects. I'm mainly worried about History and the triple science as they are content-heavy subjects. Any tips for revision from people who have already sat their gcses or in the same boat as me?

    Well done on your mocks!

    For English language, I literally just look at past papers. I'm not creative at all tbh, so I do take a bit longer on the higher mark questions where it usually asks you to write a letter / story etc. In terms of revision, my English teacher tells us to read newspapers/magazines and other forms of text regularly to improve our understanding of the layout/structuring and vocabulary of various texts. Also, in the actual exam time management is key!

    Very useful, thanks!
    How do you revise for english literature? I always fail terribly with B's on the mocks.
