    Hey guys. My exams starts in October. I am starting my revisions next Monday. I am so stressed out and frustrated because I've been so busy procrastinating. I study Maths, English, French, Economics, Business Studies and Travel & Tourism. I don't know what to do. There's so much to revise. I really need to get these straight A's. I'll have to study day and night. It's not going to be a problem. Can you guys give me some tips? I want somebody to study with but there's none. Will I able to get these Straight A's? I am really weak in Maths btw. Please help!

    You have ages don't worry about it! People have got straight A* in less than that time. Just remember to do past papers for subjects such as Maths and Science. And remember to use the specification a lot! Just doing a few hours a day is fine until it gets to August/September and you can bump up the hours a little bit And most importantly don't give yourself unrealistic expectations and impossible goals such as studying day and night because it will only cause you to burn and crash when you need your normal self most!

    There are a lot of current threads regarding general GCSE advice around TSR so I'm sure you'll find some if you look.

    and for general revision/study tips there are some useful threads under here;

    I've revised a day before for about half of my subjects, the rest a couple of days and I'm probably gonna get A's, all tests went really well. Cram revision is underrated - don't sweat too hard bud.

    3 months ago i said: Ages till exams, i'll revise.... That worked out well
    At an early stage you wanna start with the core stuff you need to know, equations, key studies, etc. Leave the stress inducing details unil 2 months to go, and dont over work yourself. I know people who work before school, in school, after school, if i did that i may just die xD Its all about doing how much you feel comfotable with. start with one or two hours now and gradually increase it as time goes on. starting tonnes of revision all in one go can be a shock.

    If I was you I would i would start preparing all the revision notes/flashcards for each of the subjects you are doing.

    After you have finished making the revision stuff, start reviewing and ensure that you are confident with the content.

    For maths - go on mathswatch, it has mini videos for each topic and a lady goes through the technique in a very simple way. It really helps.

    Past papers for maths are useful too, print out all past papers from your exam board website and do them. Then mark it yourself and see what you got wrong. Focus on the topics you got wrong and perfect them before the exam.

    Lastly, try not to stress out, you'll be alright once you start refreshing topics.

    I wish you the best of luck 😊
