    Hi, my GCSE's are in about 2 months and I still haven't started revising. I am sitting about 12 GCSEs and I am aiming for the majority of my grades to be A/A* and a C in French. When should I start revising? How should I revise? Am I royally screwed because I haven't started revising yet?

    Thanks

    Hi
    I'm in a similar position, I've got 17 exams all together (aiming for majority A*'s) and I've not really done much revision. However, I've created a revision timetable today, and I'm starting tomorrow. Don't worry starting near easter time is good, and tbh you don't need to do loads of revision to get good grades. Throughout the holidays, I have done 3 days per subject; this means 2 days revising content for one subject, then on the 3rd day exam qs.
    So I suggest you get a plan together, and make a revision timetable.
    (I'm aiming to do 6 hr slots each day-
    8:00 AM- 9:00 AM) (11:00-12:00) (2:00-3:00) (4:30-5:30) (6:30-7:30) (8:30-9:30)

    revision techniques- https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/g/d...ow-to-revise-5
    Study timetable in case if you want to make one and don't know where to start:
    These methods pretty go with all the subjects...
    Method of revision:
    - mindmaps
    - teaching others
    - recording yourself and listening back to it
    - repeating things aloud
    - revising with classmates
    - drawing diagrams
    - making a song of it
    - a silly story to help it stick
    - making notes from textbook then summarising those further into your own words (try having a limit on number of words to stick to key points)
    - writing things over and over again
    - using colour

    Make a list of all the topics, prioritise them by ordering in terms of which you need more help with/need more time to go over, then tackle each one

    If there is something you're particularly stuck on, ask the teacher for help!

    Get practise from exam and practise questions! It will help to reinforce things and find your weaker areas.

    hope that helps
