    Have i left it too late to revise? Basically what happened is I was revising well in the easter holidays but my product design and I.T coursework interfered MASSIVELY with my revision so i haven't done any since? I'm doing triple science and am predicted A's/A*s in all my GCSES - Have i left it too late to get those grades?

    THANK YOU ALL

    It will depend how bright you are, how much work you have done, how much work you will do. Some people will be fine, others not so fine.
    Just do what you can between now and the exam. How long do you have? You can achieve a lot in 3+ weeks if you work hard.

    Nope, as long as you work hard from now till the exams start you should be fine. You have revised before its not like you are just starting so you should have no problems..

    Goodluck.

    Well I've worked hard in class for the past 2 years at least!
    Basically my first exam starts on the 16th May. Then I've got one on the 17th, one on the 19th and two on the 23rd
    So that gives me a fair bit of revision time I suppose: it's not hard as such because I've worked hard - it's daunting more than anything!
    Do you have any revision tips?
    Thank you

    Do you have any tips on how to revise effectively, in a relatively short period of time?

    :eek: It might be a bit hard, but you can do it. Just make notes for important sections, use the specification and do loads of past papers.

    For science and re you can make revision card and notes to go over for history you can create a timeline for key events and do past papers for all. I don't do Geography sorry I don't know what I would do.

    It's better to revise now than not to revise at all. Although I think it is quite late now but as long as you start right now and revise properly you will still achieve better than if you don't at all. Good luck though.

    I did not do History or Geography so i cant really help.

    Past Papers - This helped me the most
    A4 Posters (With short and brief things too help trigger your memory in the real exam)
    Flashcards (Again only information which is relevant and not long winded answers)

    Trust me all is not lost - You just need to get your head down, do whatever whether that be waking up at 6am and not going to sleep till 2am its better to do your best now then regret it later.
