So, i'm currently in Year 10 studying 11 GCSEs;
English Literature Edexcel 9-1
English Language Edexcel 9-1
Biology AQA 9-1
Chemistry AQA 9-1
Physics AQA 9-1
Mathematics Edexcel 9-1
Geography Edexcel B 9-1
History AQA 9-1
RE Edexcel B 9-1
Spanish AQA 9-1
Arabic Edexcel A*-G

So my question really is I don't want to be stressing this time next year about exams as I see threads on TSR everyday about this and see current Year 11's in my school really stressing over their exams and I don't want to be on in that situation.

Has anyone got any tips regarding this that I can do whilst exams are a year away. E.g. Flashcards

Thanks!

There's no point in doing hard core revision now because your exams, as you mentioned, are a year away.

However, for now, just focus on taking good notes in class, and asking for clarification asap on topics and concepts you don't understand, and creating revision resources you can work from by the time you go into Year 11 and to revise for mocks, the real exams etc. The benefit of doing this is that you won't be wasting time filling in gaps on things you didn't make notes on and thus, leaves you ample time to learn, revise and consolidate everything you've learned.

As for when you need to revise, start around your first set of mock exams in Year 11. Don't go hard core straight away though, instead increase the amount of time you need to revise as the exam dates get closer, ie start light and then increase it throughout the year.

Hope this helps!
