    Hey,My GCSE Exams are only next year however I know the exams for this year are upcoming.
    I'd love for some people to tell me in-depth on how they revisit,So what they user and what revision methods they use(mind maps...).
    Also,how much do you revise per day and how long ago before exams did you start as I'm in year 10 currently and I was thinking of starting at the start of year 11 so almost a year before...

    Hi,
    I'm also in Year 10 and in my School we usually get tested on topic that we just learnt. So what I do is that I make flashcards that I can use for the test and can also come back to these notes when I'm in Year 10. Mind maps are also a good way of revising if your a visual learner. I think when revising for the real GCSEs, first complete past papers for each subject to see what you know and mark it using the mark scheme.Then revise, then do another past paper to check how much you have improved.

    I prefer to write up my notes and then type them up so that I have a backup. I also use past papers and youtube videos for maths and english.

    I started revising in january and do around 5-6 hours on a school day and then around 7-8 on a weekend.

    Hope I was able to help you in some way.
