    You should have started revising first thing when you came back from the Christmas holiday.

    If you are the kind of person who can revise a night before and manage to score a B leave revision until May .

    If you did poor for your mocks I would suggest getting off TSR and revising right now.

    Starting ''properly'' now could actually hurt you in the long run. Doing a few hours in a week wouldn't hurt but if you do too much you're just going to burn out and not want to revise when it actually matters. Right now I would just start going over things you're not that confident on and leave the real revision until late Feb/March.

    I would advise starting earlier, as then you can spread out your revision more- which means you don't have to do as much in the run up to your exams. Even if it is just an hour or two a week, it will help. Time flies by when exams are looming- honestly. I have my A levels in the summer (which are after GCSEs) and I have started revision (granted I have mocks in two weeks time). I think what is important is keeping the stuff from year 10 in your head, and by starting now you will be able to continually check your knowledge, and you are allowing time to establish if there is anything you don't understand or don't know that you need to know- so you have time to ask a teacher to explain something again if needed.

    My teachers at GCSE said that really the latest you should start is at Easter, however plenty of people I know were revising from January.

    Yeah burning out is the worst thing you can do. Just do what you can be bothered to do right now. That's my advice.
