    Aiming for 10 A* at GCSE's
    the average for my school is 6-7 A*-B grades
    I need help, preferably from sixth formers or people taking GCSE's in 2018 on what plan best suits them and what is most effective.
    Currently school is my literal 9-5 day job. I come in at 7:50 and start work at 8:00 - 8:45 (usually doing homeworks) then school ends about 3:25 and I go to the school library which is open till 5:00. I usually leave at 4:30 (finished homeworks) and then I get home and do extra revision. Is this effective? I have aspergers so I like everything in order. So please don't irritate me put things in order.

    It sounds like you're spending more than enough time on revision and school work, good for you! Just make sure you don't overdo it, still take some time out for yourself to do things you enjoy and to relax.

    The most useful revision technique I'd recommend is doing past papers and marking them to get used to the type of answers and wording that the examiners want.

    I'm in my second year of A-levels and am now starting to revise, hopefully I can be as dedicated to it as you are!
