I have been procrastinating to revise for awhile now, and I just don't know how to start. I mean it's quite far away to start revising for exams intensely as they're in the summer, but I feel like I should have done some in these two weeks of holidays.
Is there anything you recommend that I can do now please, I'm planning on making notes, but I don't want to make them too detailed or too empty if you understand. I'm just in a pickle at the moment haha,
Thank you everyone and have a good day

For humanities subjects, I like to do mind maps of key facts in each topic - try and condense the information as much as you can to just the essential knowledge! Later on in the year, I read over the mind maps and then try to recreate them by memory.
For the sciences and maths, I make sure I do enough practise questions on each topic and then do lotsss of past papers.
Flash cards are good for definitions.
Good luck in the summer!

To get the best results...
THE EARLY THE BETTER! For science in my December mocks I got... An E and a F..
The worst grades I have ever got! And I wanted to do science for my a levels! So I was upset but then 2 weeks I motivated myself. I would do revision every night for a hour and keep reading over my text book for 20 mins. I did this for every science and believe me it worked. Also a very big thing which helps is EXAM PAPERS!! They normally tend to repeat questions and try to memorise what they are expecting you to say in the mark schemes for diff questions!! Do every paper you can.. and do them all over again till ur exams!
For my GCSE's I brung up and got 3 B's!
Hope this helps

I would say ideally you should be doing 2 hrs after school on weekdays and 3/4 hrs on weekends (per day). GCSEs are so varied that there's bound to be a subject that you're weak on and need to spend more time revising for.
Also, best piece of advice ... enjoy the content you're studying. Chances are, after this year you're never going to study it again so make the most of it!
