    For all you guys who did well in your GCSEs... what was your best revision technique? Did it apply for all of your subjects, silence/music, timings, how much you did etc would all be much appreciated!

    I'm probably not yet qualified to answer as I've only done one GCSE so far but:

    I watch TV shows (obviously without much concentration) and listen to music (usually the study playlist on spotify) while working

    I work best with youtube videos, posters and flash cards

    I spend around 4 hours on a weekday and up to 10 hours on a weekend; last year with my first GCSE I started revising around a month before and revised 3/4 hours a day on weekdays and around the same on weekends, I don't remember doing too much on weekends, then again it was only one GCSE so I didn't have all the work in the world to do

    if you're visual and doing sciences, mygcsescience. now i know why people call him a god among us

    i've forgotten every unit 1 but he basically taught it to me again

    if you prefer casually doing notes from books you coud listen to mozart-it doesnt make your studying worse and apparantly it can be better according to other accounts but i'm not sure. I listen to him occasionally when revising long theory subjects (history :/)

    audio/auditory- podcasts, make your own raps from notes, videos also

    kinaesthetic- read your notes out loud, walk around with your notes, make flashcards

    or do a combo of all
