Are you guys revising for GCSEs now? Should I be? Am I the only one who finds the new maths and English GCSEs impossible?
Shout out to my fellow year 10s going into year 11!! Watch

- What level are you working at?
- What tier are you working on?
- Are there any specific topics you are struggling with?
That said, you still have a ton of time, but it wouldn't hurt starting early.Last edited by _gcx; 25-07-2016 at 15:42.

Hey! I'm another Y10 going into Y11 in Sept. The daunting fact of the GCSEs being that close freaks me out but we can do it!
There will be a new Y11 thread made in due course, for the time being follow the Current Y10 thread.

I have just finished year 11, and similarly to the previous poster, I also feel that there is no need to start revising yet.
If you haven't finished learning all the content yet for your subjects, I would (and I did) make summary pages after each lesson. This will make sure you understood everything, and it will definitely help when you start revision!! I also made flashcards throughout the year, so that I could test myself whenever I was bored, and so that I was ready when the proper revision came in.
All I can say is, wait until after any mocks you have, and then start revising, as these mocks should highlight any areas that you're struggling with. If, like me, you have 2 sets of mocks before the real things, I would revise less for the first set, as this will then show you what you alreasy know, without any revision, and then of course, revise whatever you need to for the second set of mocks, and you should (hopefully!) See that you've improved a vast amount since the last ones!!
All I can say now is - Good luck with year 11! And don't worry too much!
(I will be taking all of my advice for my first year of 6th form also!)

I just finished my YR 11 exams. Let me tell you this you DO NOT need to revise months before if you consistently worked hard throughout the 2 years
