    Hello all,
    My mock GCSE examinations begin on the 31st October, I go back to school on the 5th of September.
    I spend quite a fair bit of time revising, I like to be rather thorough.
    When would you suggest I start revising for my mocks, bearing in mind that I will also have a two week half term prior to the mocks.
    I am taking ten subjects and would like to get 10A*'s in these mock examinations, however, I would be happy to achieve the minimum of 7A*s and 3As. When I come to completing my proper GCSEs, I will aim to get 10A*s.

    All advice will be greatly appreciated.

    like a week or maybe two before - didn't stress out over mine but might have been because they were straight after Christmas and I wanted to chill during the holidays

    I revised 2 weeks before my mocks. Came out with good results and did much better in my GCSE's. Started revising for GCSE's in March-April. Good luck!

    I would start revising a week or 2 before the actual mocks. Don't stress out about them too much since the majority do better in the final exams.
