    Thursday 31st March

    Today - Had a rather laid back approach today, taking a break from my usual 9am start. Although revision is important, I feel taking a break can be very beneficial, in order to come back stronger and put in the extra work the next day. Saying that, I am near completion of my Chemistry write-up. I am near the end of C2 and should complete it tomorrow morning.

    Tomorrow - I will finish my Chemistry notebook, the third of my notebook series. I am also likely to move on to Computer Science. I probably won't make too much progress but if I can, then all the better.

    Hope everyone has had a productive day.

    Below are some YouTubers that I have been watching recently who have given me great advice, not just for GCSE but for future plans and education. They might be helpful.

    God everyone has good hopes here, I have to learn a whole new science spec in like a week as I don't want to do it after the easter holidays :P.
    I'm retaking Science EDEXCEL because I got a B last year, ISA bought me down , so edexcel double award doesn't have coursework which is good for me.

    I've also go to learn the AS Biology Chemistry and Math/Further maths which is fine.
    Which me luck xD

    I'm not even sure if I can do it...

    Hi Sage25,
    Well done on your current progress and hopefully you get all the A*s you hope for. I was just wondering for maths have you got any tips on getting an A* as i always be a few marks off in my mocks and i always get to end of paper and i have questions that i don't know how to answer. Also have you got any tips on revising as i can never get down to revise with full focus and i always start really late. Thanks for the help

    One of the main things I realised after failing to do proper revision for several months was that revising the things that you already know is completely pointless. So for example the sciences, I revised one unit at a time. So for B1 lets say, I looked through the spec and copied the individual facts which I didn't know, and then wrote down all the set piece answers (condensed into 3 or 4 lines) for the 6 and 4 markers they ask almost every year. Mygcsescience.com is very good for finding these if you do AQA.

    For a subject like R.E you literally only need to do quotes (for AQA if I remember rightly), as a lot of it is common sense really. For history if you have paid attention in class you should only need to write down facts to revise, with all the exam templates having been drilled into your head already from practicing them in class and things.

    Feel free to ask me how I did other subjects, but generally my tactic was to write down like a cheat sheet for everything I would need for an exam, and then cram learning it for it the next day.
