Would it be wise to revise for subjects that i need in A-level and University rather than waste time on the others since I'm just starting my revision and don't have much time.

Try and get as much done as you can in the Easter holidays! You still have time!!!! This mentality of 'I don't have enough time so there's no point in bothering needs to stop' make a revision timetable and prioritise what you need to revise based on how soon the exam is and how much work you need to put in. Then make revision notes/ look st the specifcstion, do past paper questions, look up mark schemes to see the model answers etc for each subject! You might think you know what you want to do now but you may change your mind and if you don't give yourself the opportunity to do well in other subjects your choice will be much more limited! Give yourself the best chance possible of achieving the best grades! Good luck!

I hardly revised for my GCSEs, i revised for some exams the night before, but not most of them, and I did great (3A*s, 4As and 2Bs). it doesnt prepare you for A Levels though. so i'd say get revising, regardless of the subject.

You could learn 12 GCSEs in 2 weeks and get As and Bs comfortably so no just revise them all.

Definitely the first one which is what I'm aiming for 8A/A* and possibly 3 passes for the other GCSEs as I'm not in need of them and time is short.

But I'm a BIG procrastinator it won't help for me to have more GCSEs to stress about when they aren't need right.

Generally you need A*s and As in all GCSEs to get into a top Uni really.
