    I try to do 3 hours for science but that's about it. There's so much to remember! I mostly revise biology because I can't seem to remember a lot. (I freaking hate Biology.) I also maybe read or listen to something in French but I'm trying to start revising for History as well... but that's not going so well.

    I don't really know how to revise because I've never done it before. I struggle to do 3 hours so I don't know how you're going to manage 9 hours . Depends on the person, I guess.

    I personally don't set time limits. I just decide what I want to do for the day (e.g. revise 2 lessons of Biology, do a C4 past paper etc. etc.) and just do that. Never liked using time limits because I can't really stick to them haha xD (doing A2s btw)

    Am I the only one that's barely managing to do 3 hours :lol:
    Nope :lol: I've left all my revision to nearly April now and I can't seem to do much. Revising is so alien to me but I fear it's late now (my first exam is on the 3rd of may! ) and I need to revise.

    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?
    I'm worried about the exact same subjects! There's just so much to remember and it doesn't help that I don't have a good memory

    I'm doing my GCSEs . My school advises against doing any more than 4 or 5... what you don't know by hour seven you won't know by hour 11. It's sunny outside . Go play football or get drunk or something.. they're only GCSEs at the end of the day

    I know how you feel man, I've kept revision too late but I think it's better I've done this because it motivates me to revise more.
    Today was my first official day of revision, I just done 4 hours worth, now I know B1-3 inside out upside down, not too bad tbh

    Same, today was my first day. I've set up a revision time table and sadly, most of my time is going towards Biology I'm glad I won't have to do Biology any more after secondary. Why the hell do I need to know about the spongy mesophyll layer and cuticles of a leaf!!!! kmt
