    Alot of my friends are starting to revise now, however I think it's too early to start now.
    Anyway I can never find motivation to revise and always end up procrastinating or only doing it for five minutes.
    Any help?

    I think work together as group with your friends at school and also at home over social media. From there motivation will build. I and others can only give you advice of how to learn but the motivation will grow as you learn more and more

    I was once told by a family friend the following quote which sticks with me whenever i'm feeling lazy.

    'If you have a 15cm ruler to represent a timeline of your life, the entire length of time that you spend in education will take you up to about 3cm'

    Although it's probably not mathematically correct, it does however put into perspective that the harder you work in this very little time, the greater the rest of your life will possibly be.

    -Good Luck Guys!

    But I think that I would forget everything if I start revising now, isn't it better to start afetr half term (that's what I was planning on doing.) Will I actually get a better grade if I start revising now rather than after half tem?

    You will definitely get a better grade when you start revising now. You wont forget anything if you only practise something once. Its about continuing the practise that you get better and better.

    Don't you mean you will forget everything if you only practise something once?

    You should really start soon. In my GCSEs, I started making revision resources (notes, mind maps, flash cards etc) in October, did light revision up to ️️January and then started properly revision in February. My mocks were in February so I started properly just before these .

    Starting to revise early is the best choice. The new GCSE's force you to look back on units you have done ages ago, so it's always good to refresh yourself with those topics so it won't be too hard to revise everything closer to the exam.

    I made notes all the way through year 10 and 11 and finished all my notes in Feb half term. Then from March onwards i started properly learning it all - I got 12 A*s.

    If you haven't written any of your notes yet start now.
    If you have written most of your notes, finish them before the end of Feb and then start learning them after the holidays.
    If you have written all your notes and are organised go over the stuff you find difficult and don't understand and improve any old notes from year 9/10. start learning it by March.

    If you start full on revising now, by the time you get to May you will have burnt out and have no motivation left!

    Good luck
