    I am doing my GCSEs right now and I really want to get A* and As in my subjects. I still have round about 5 months till my real GCSEs. In March I have my mock exams. I wanted to ask, if I want to get those top grades, how much time should I spend each day on revision? Although, I know there is no x amount of hours for A*s in your subject. Thank you so much!

    Just in case if you want to know my subjects, I am doing:
    English Language
    English Literature
    Mathematics
    Core Science
    Additional Science
    History
    Geography
    Religious Studies
    Information Technology

    It differs for each person. What do you get normally?
    Apart from English, my revision pretty much consisted of cramming the day before the mock and I got As, A*s, 8s and 9s.
    For mocks I wouldn't stress too much - maybe an hour a night maximum?
    I'll probably step my revision up to 1hour a night starting soon, then 3-4 within a month or so of the exams

    Hey! Thanks for replying to me. I try to study really hard but I get grades like Cs mostly but I got an E in one of my exam which was Geography but I don't like geography. Maybe that's why. I want to boost them up to As and A*s. Thanks.
