    nah because since these will be done quite recently, you might get used to their format and the way their mark schemes work (which may be wrong for your exam board)

    Yeah it should be fine. I'm doing the same but I'm giving majority importance to science and maths as they are my weakest subjects. Then in between I do history, Spanish Etc

    Find other ways of revising - certain websites might give you quizzes and questions on various subjects/topic areas (ex. bitesize) and past papers from other exam boards /might/ work if you only focus on the topics you have covered in your own exam board as well.

    1) Do huge (and I'm talking A3 sized) mindmaps for each module/unit. Stick them onto the wall if possible.
    2) According to my biology teacher, "You can never do too many past papers!" (though I would disagree, but hey teachers know their stuff)
    3) If it's maths, consider looking at papers from other exam boards, GCSE further maths or even C1 from the A-Level. You can never complete all questions on those topics.
    4) If it's a MFL, go around the house with sticky notes (if parents will allow it) and label objects with the foreign language. Who knows, it may even benefit the rest of the people living in your house.
    5) Hold study sessions with friends. Test each other on topics etc.
    6) Ask your teachers! It appears that they have an endless supply of material.
    7) You mentioned doing 5 hours of work per day. Remember quality not quantity. Can you think of any methods that would decrease the time needed but allow you to learn more? Not only will this help your GCSEs but it will also benefit your A-Levels where there will be A LOT more content being squeezed into another 2 year course.

    Hope this has helped
