    I've just finished mocks (haven't got results back yet, but im confident I got mostly a's/a*'s apart from maths), and I'm pretty anxious about revising for my real exams. I haven't started any 'hardcore' revision but I've begun complining notes on P1 to go with the p2, c2 and b2 notes I already made for my mock exams. I also aim to have complied detailed notes on the unit one's of the other sciences as well by halfway through feburary, and then after that I'd compile revision notes for my other gcses etc. The reason im doing this is so that when it comes to 'hardcore' revision, I can make revision cards and stuff for the notes I've already made, because cramming is something I find effective. As I said I haven't officially got my mock results back, but I crammed a set of notes I made 30 minutes the night before my RS exam and was told by my teacher yesterday I got around 97% which im pretty chuffed about. So what I was interested in knowing is what's the best time to actually start revising for GCSE's? Have I started too early, or maybe to late? Thanks

    Sounds good, try and finish your notes and then go onto past papers. You've probably started a bit early ( early than i did anyway) but that's a good thing

    Now is the perfect time to start. Well done on the 97% in RE! However, don't get complacent as this is one of those subjects in which somebody can excel at without much revision (in my opinion anyway).

    I like your plan of making notes now and later on, making flashcards and doing past papers etc. I might steal that idea lol.

    Yeah but RS is pretty easy... I revised everything on the morning of my real exam and got an A*! Don't get me wrong- 97% is still VERY good but just don't get complacent...
