    This method is good for working and then allowing yourself breaks every so often:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pomodoro_Technique

    Drink lots of water, don't sacrifice your sleep, eat some nutritious food, use techniques that actually work for you (e.g. flashcards, mindmaps, rewriting notes, teaching someone, textbooks, revision guides) and just yeah work hard.

    get all your books together and write out the chapters and things you need to do. make a list then go form there. start as soon as possible, and just focus on it.
    tbh 10 hours a day isn't right. do 5-6
    rather do 30 mins of proper revision than 2-3 hours of revision where you don't get the info properly, have proper sleep.

    i dont know what else i can do to get all the topics covered in the time i have. with an aim for four As, its all very scary. But thanks a lot for all the advice and the pomodoro technique looks good! I find it very hard to revise early which is why i have left it so late. I ended up cramming the night before at GCSE. I am very confused as i have sooooo much to learn in 5 weeks. xx
    sorry about grammar and spelling mistakes, i am on my phone lol

    and yeah do loads and loads of past papers. there is only a certain types of questions that they ca ask you. once you get the just of answering questions then thats good. and talk to your teachers and ask them where your weak points are. there are easter holidays now so you won't be in school ,but if you are able to just email them.
