My exams are starting from this week but I am just curious as to when people started revising for GCSE?

At the moment, I feel like I'm the only one who is a bit chill and starting revision like a week before. I mean... I do revise and I am focused when I do revise but I don't know how people revise like a month before?? I usually forget it all .. I think cramming sometimes works for me. I normally revised like the night before for my mocks and got A/A* and some Bs... (im not being cocky btw).

I started revising the subjects i was not as confident with around 1 month before, but that is because i had revision lessons when i had finished the course
I think it shouldnt be a problem when you revise, as long as you know you're prepared for the exam, it shouldnt matter

How do you guys leave it so late? I was fully prepared for exams a month before exams. Though granted I did flop my A Levels, but screw it I'm doing what I love right now, robbing wall street.

idk man... personally, a month seems too much for me. and when i say a week, i mean a whole week of like long hours or focused revision not just like 1 or 2 hours a day. also, procrastination is a huge thing for me and i tend to do well when im under pressure and cramming somehow helps?
and i tend to forget if i revise that early, but i guess that's my fault.

however, i do not think this is the right technique for everyone.

Usually I revised a few weeks before or less for any given exam. With some it was a matter of days. Well, with Welsh it was a matter of one night.. I got mostly A*s and a couple As.

Hey - I wouldn't worry if you started late. Honestly I started late every year and came out with a really good set of top grades! It's just about making your revision efficient, and effective: writing notes out again and again won't cut it. I made a video about the revision techniques I used (i'm now at uni, LSE), so hopefully it could help you out!
https://youtu.be/5cSyAR9bXAw
I'll be making more revision sort of videos too so let me know what you think or subscribe if you wanna see the others when they come out
