    I started around mid April and left with 4 A's 8 B's and 2 C's.

    If i had started earlier then i could have done better.

    Since new GCSE Spec is harder i'd recommend now honestly.

    Whenever you need to start. There's no set date when you should start. You could have started months ago and you could start weeks before the exam. Everybody starts at different times. The type and quality of the revision is more important than the quantity.

    I recommend not looking at education as something you should be revising for as and when you need it. Instead treat education as something you do all the time. You should always be learning. Don't limit yourself to just learning and revising when you have exams.
