    I'm aiming for the same, I haven't (yet) started revising. I'm currently doing a little revision for my mocks.

    Remember, the earlier you start, the better the mark.

    A/A* are not determined by the amount of time you put in. They are determined by the amount and quality of the work you put in. You could start now and not get above a B if you don't learn and revise properly. Hours of work do not equate to an A*

    Also why the 9th? Why not start now? What does putting it off for 4 days accomplish? Will Monday come around and you decide to put it off for another day or two? The sooner you get into a schedule the better. So start now. Get off TSR and do soem revision right now.

    Sadly I have them when I get back on Monday. Had to spend the whole holiday revising.

    If you did well in your mocks, base your revision off that. If you did not do so well, revise more and change your revision strategy.

    I started revision in Christmas holidays because we have mocks now and these inform our predicted grades to colleges. But it was hard and made me tired over Christmas break.I don't think you've left it too late, there are months and months, but definitely start as soon as you can. Don't go too intense too fast because otherwise you'll be tired come April/May.

    Hey everyone - just thought it might be worth letting you know that I've posted links to flashcards I made and used during my GCSEs https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=4233122 I'm not sure how much use they'll be, but feel free to use them
