    I'm doing my Yr 11 mocks at the moment and I never took advantage of the winter break to thoroughly revise. I'm still confident more most subjects bar edexcel maths computing and triple science aqa. I find the subjects difficult due to the large amount of content to get through & my inability to comprehend them. After the winter break I started revising seriously and gained motivation. However my mocks have already started and I have maths & computing tomorrow. I've already accepted I won't do as good as I want to, but how do I look to the future as whenever I revise either I get frustrated at not comprehending the material first time which I can do with my other subjects and I feel like giving up. Can someone please give me advice on how about to go about my revision in a better way for the future(I can't revise a few months of material in a few days).

    If I were you I wouldn't worry about not getting to revise over your winter break. Everyone needs a break or you would just get to feed up when you go back to school. Try and set yourself a timetable and take regular breaks and snacks to stay motivated. You can still hit your targets just keep working hard. what is it that you would like to achieve in your GCSE's and when are your actual tests?

    I did my GCSE's last summer, the way I revised was by using BBC Bitesize, SAM Learning and the CGP revision guides. I am aware that some content for subjects has now changed. however, my simple tips are:

    -Do not revise large amounts of revision in one big blot, you are unlikely to remember it all!
    -Try different methods of revision, stick things up in your room!
    -Audio! Record yourself saying notes and you are more likely to remember it if you listen to it multiple times.

    Hope this helps

    My target grades are mostly a*s and a few a's whilst my predicted ones are a's and b's. My actually GCSE exams start from May- End of June/Start of July. I'm doing my GCSE mocks from now till January 25th

    I think doing a little bit of revision at the time is very useful.

    So with the subjects which require lots of material perhaps start revising for them around march/april. If you're not feeling too confident, perhaps start during February half term. I think it's equally important to have balance too,so you deserve to have a break after mocks. And use your experience from mocks to concentrate on areas you struggled with and use it as motivation to revise I find (:
