So i was wandering if you could help me out as i really struggle with revising and actually getting things in my head , im up to try anything i have to get some C's if im going anywhere in life other than living on a street corner begging. Thanks for reading any help is much appreciated.

    Your life is not over, fear not.

    GCSE mocks - only 3 GCSE'S above a C. GCSE real - 13 A*-B's
    AS mocks - DDEU. AS real - AABB

    Look at the spec and examiner reports and make as many flash cards as you can. Literally use the all of Amazon rain-forest if you must, flash cards are the best.

    Complete past papers and make flash cards on areas you struggle, break the spec down into flash card format and write just a few key points to jog your memory. The examiners report is a document which outlines where people went wrong and literally tells you how to write the correct answer - use this.
    Found this post I recieved rep for ages ago which may help:
    You have a lot of time where you can have some intensive revision and hopefully improve your grades.
    DO : Create a list of goals that you wish to achieve by the end of the week
    DO : Complete a past paper, pick out areas where you can improve and create a flash card for it. Few days later complete a question on this area again and see if you understand it now. Seeing this improvement can often motivate people.
    DO : Think about the reward ! Imagine exceeding all your target grades and getting into your chosen college/sixth form

    DO NOT : Read, highlight and copy out pages and pages from a textbook, this is passive revision and you will not remember it
    DO NOT : Sit there forever (easier said than done, i know) as this will only worry you. Actually get started which is the hardest part about any revision.

    Remember, despite you having exams, take a break and give your mind a rest.
    Hope this helps,
    Lee
