    Constant revision.
    Thanks for replying,
    I'm going to start my real revision on Friday (as I have a business studies mock exam) I'm aiming to do about 3-4 hours going through previous topics and testing my self after. Is this ok or should I be doing more?

    Just make sure you know where you're going wrong and do a lot of past papers.
    And remember, longer revision doesn't necessarily mean better revision.

    You talking about GCSEs? Of course, you can!

    It requires the following commitments from your end:

    * Motivation - You need to be extremely motivated over the next few months. Think of it like a "make or break scenario". If you study hard and aim high, you will instantly get something

    * Dedication - You need to be dedicated for the next couple of months. Stick to the plan and follow through

    * Perseverance - You will need to persevere. This means giving up on some of life's luxuries such as games, T.V. time, mobile usage etc. You may at times - closer to the exams - give up on some sleep to revise more and practice more papers.

    * Eat, Sleep, Study & Do Past Papers, Repeat! - Yes, literally follow this through. Do past papers on a regular and read on and around your subjects. If you take public transport - take the time to make some flash cards and really invest time, energy and passion into them.

    You will do well if you follow through. How can you trust me, well I graduated with a First Class Honours degree in 2016 following the above technique

    No worries mate.

    Don't feel like you have to just dive right into it. Slowly ease yourself into this routine - it will take time. It is good that you are considering it now in January and not say in April - as you will get used to the schedule and of course have more knowledge - not to forget reduced stress.

    Good luck with it all
