In my mocks I got 1D 5C and 3 B without no revision whatsoever. Can someone tell me what I'm capable of if I revise?

All you need to know is that success in GCSE is relative to the amount of hours you put in

What would you call quality revision techniques?

With revision, a lot is possible. People forget that yes while academia is partially intelligence, a great deal of it is putting the effort in and knuckling down remberimg content and practising how to answer the questions. I'd say you are capable of at least all C's and B's but there's no reason why you couldn't get all B's or even a few A's if you really try. There's 6 weeks left now, so you should get a wiggle on but I believe anything is possible if you actually work hard!

Thank you so much, I've found it so difficult to motivate myself and the best I've done is 45-60 minutes revision a day over Easter in 15 minute sessions, but I find it actually stays in my brain? But on the other hand I feel like I should be doing more, thanks a lot for that little bit extra motivation, and confidence

I think that is good because it's always quality over quantity, if you revise for a lot of hours on end but you find yourself distracted and as if you're not getting stuff done then there's no point doing it. I think you should keep that up but perhaps do a couple of sessions of it, so give yourself that time twice or perhaps 3 times a day, you'll get used to it but it won't feel like you're spending all your time revising. You're welcome, you will do well!

Btw, on capability. I'd say its 95 percent hard work and 5 percent intelligence. intellgence will get you far, but hard work will get you further!
