Instead of doing homework and revising for end of topic tests and stuff should i just make notes and revise for my GCSE's instead rather than spend time on my end of units as eventually I will revise those subjects anyway so I don't see the point. Advice please?
What to do ? Watch

Personally I think that is rather counter productive, because if you skip the revising homework's and smaller tests then you won't have built up as much knowledge on individual aspects of the course and by skipping homework's you may miss things that are key to helping you understand the course?

End of topic tests allow you to help with exam structure, the specification and timing. Also, it is a free opportunity to revise! You can also see what is going wrong and your teacher will be able to see how to best help you. Revise for them, and the notes you make whilst revising for a topic will come in handy for your final revision.
But yes, I had this feeling back when I was doing GCSEs, it is sort of hard to get your revision done when you have homework you have to do first since the deadlines are quicker.
However, teachers set homework that they think will help you revise, they won't have anything that is non-essential, but they will understand if you don't do homework because you're revising instead. It can be rough on you guys.
Don't sweat it, and just revise. Prioritise revising topics that you are having tests for first, though.
