    I made a note of any topics I found difficult as I did the past papers, then any I got wrong as I marked each one, then made a few notes/read over each topic before doing the next paper.



    No worries



    It's a bindi, 'cause I'm totally indie like that
    Lol How much did you revise during the easter holidays?

    Uhhhh for sciences I watched all of the mygcsescience videos twice each, maths I did past papers and went to revision sessions and the others I either looked over the night before or showed up and hoped for the best. I don't recommend!!!

    I remember making brief notes on the whole chemistry spec, some parts of physics & a fair bit for history (so many dates to remember!) - however, I'd say just revise until you feel mostly comfortable with each spec

    Also, it's easier to go over everything (and I do mean everything) for your mocks, so you can chill a little when your actual GCSEs come around. In other words, make notes until you're sick of making notes/you have to take your exam/you legitimately know everything off by heart.

    Managed my time well, started learning way earlier so I had time to revise when it came closer to exams. And if I didn't understand topics I wasn't scared of asking for help from teachers and friends after school. Watching youtube videos for sciences helped too. But mainly do past papers again and again. Good luck

    I did virtually no revision, 3 hours a day at the most because GCSEs were disgustingly easy.
    i dont think its the difficulty of comprehending particular parts of the syllabus, its just that there is quite alot of content to cover/memorise
