    So I've seen quite a lot of people make these and I thought I would make one for myself. Hopefully it's going to help me to get on with my revision because I've literally done jack all this holiday (I've done the tiniest bit of History, Biology and Chemistry so far).

    Okay so I'm aiming for:
    Maths: A*
    English Lit: A*
    English Lang: A*
    Biology: A*
    Chemistry: A* (will probably get an A)
    Physics: A* (will probably get an A)
    History: A*
    PE: A* (but will probably get an A)
    Spanish: A*
    Drama: A*

    In my mocks I got:
    Maths: A
    English Lit: A*
    English Lang: A*
    Biology: A
    Chemistry: A
    Physics: A* (Lord knows how...)
    History: B (exam technique was non existent)
    PE: C (haha yeah my exam technique was very poor)
    Spanish: A*
    Drama: A*

    For my A Levels I hope to do Biology, Geography (let's see how that will go without the GCSE...) and Politics.

    My revision technique is kind of jacked up because I don't do much revision but I'm definitely going to step up in the upcoming 6 weeks.
    Sciences I watch videos, make notes then make a poster on each module (it takes 2 hours each module so it really is not efficient).
    History I make a poster for each section of the syllabus.
    Drama I don't, but I will probably make notes about my performance.
    Spanish I revise vocab and verbs with a flip book.
    English I haven't thought about revision yet but I will probably make posters about characters and read through my notes for poetry.
    PE I make posters and notes.
    Maths I do past papers and practice questions.

    So what are you guys hoping for in your exams? What are you hoping to take for A Level? And how do you revise for each subject?

    I've already done my GCSEs in IT and RE and I got A*s in both.

    For A Level:
    History

    French

    I revise by using flashcards and past papers mostly. But I don't revise for Maths or French apart from looking over topics I find difficult in Maths and learning some complex vocabulary and structures for French.

    Hi,

    I am going to try and aim for all A*s too but I won't be too disappointed if I don't.
    In my mocks I got:-
    Maths-A
    English literature-A
    Biology-A
    Chemistry-A
    Physics-A*
    History-A*
    German-A
    Latin-A*
    French-A*
    And I haven't got my English language back yet.

    I revise mostly by making notes and doing questions from the textbook and cgp books. But I haven't done much yet
