    Having just done GCSEs (9 A*s and 1A), my advise would be print off all the specifications for your GCSE content based subjects (such as biology, chemistry, physics etc) and start learning them now. They tell you exactly what you need to know and stop you going off on a tangent. Particularly with the sciences, I found that every exam question I answered was more or less just reciting a particular line from the specification.

    For the more skills based subjects like maths, I would start doing lots of practise questions every week, rather than leaving everything late and finding that you did not understand something. It is better to understand something when you learn it rather that leaving it until revision.

    You're welcome. Just note that there are a lot of changes to the GCSE system at the moment, so my advise may not be applicable to your situation.
