    Guys I'm literally gonna kms....

    Our teachers have told us to start revising for mocks in April but I'm SO bad at revision. For example, if you tell me I have a test on, say, the heart and circulation a week in advance, I'll forget all about it and then act SOOOOO shocked on Monday morning. I really make myself sick sometimes.

    Does anybody have any advice on how to stop procrastinating and start getting sh*t done? As a potential Clare College graduate, this is not the attitude I should be having (three years, but still).

    Also: Revision techniques? I've tried mindmaps but they're TOO HARD TO USE.

    Also (part 2): Help me use my planner effectively. I don't know how.

    Thank ya! :-)

    Do revise for the mocks but don't go overboard like you would for the real GCSE's. Year 10 is mainly about coursework (or if you are doing double award science, three science exams).
