    I'm currently in Year 11 so GCSE's are looming rather near and I just wondered if anyone had any tips for revision and creating time tables?

    Firstly I don't really know when to start revision, should I start now or in Feb half term? And by revision I mean proper revision as in a good few hours a night not just going over notes.

    Also the next thing I am really struggling with is creating a revision timetable and sticking to it? I find it quite hard to fit all my topics for each subject in and not have like triple biology revsion on sunday!

    Basucally if anyone has any tips for GCSE's please share them down below!

    Also please don't anyone say how they didn't start revising until the end of April and still get 11A*'s because that just doesn't work for me!

    Just a bit of extra information, I'm predicted A's/A*'s so I do know I will need to put a lot of work in and I am willing to do that!


    I would say it's a good time to start looking over notes from Year 10 / Year 9, to remind yourself. Most people start proper intense revision during the half term. I wouldn't stress myself out so early on (right now) though.
