This obviously depends on the person, subjects like science if you have a good memory you could probably memorise the course the night before. I didn't pay attention in english and managed to get AA in lit and lang just from youtube the night before.

This isn't recommended, however looking back its absolutely possible to get A* in every subject barring languages with revision, starting now.

Spent about 30 hours on each of the sciences and ended up with A* in triple science, not too difficult just do practice.

Yes, in theory.

Obvious exceptions would be Maths and linguistics, unless you have a preexisting high ability, as they require practice over an extended period of time.

Well I, of course, am not aware of your ability, hence I said "in theory".

Yeah, languages can be shite sometimes, and I can say that from first-hand experience. (it's French in my case)

If you're naturally talented, GCSEs are easy and a complete joke. I didn't even bother to revise for some of them.
