My GCSE exams have already started but the much harder exams are coming up next week and the week after and I don't know what to do because I only started revising in April and I feel like its too late to revise. Do you guys have any advice or tips on what I should do? Also when I start revising after like 30 minutes into it I get bored and then I will usually go on my phone and that just leads to procrastination and this is something that always happens to me so any advice will be really appreciated

Not too late, contrary to popular belief, I found that last minute revision helps me a lot. It all depends on the person. For my GCSEs I think I did revision for each subject a day or two before the exam, so it's never too late. For AS Levels you may need to start at least a week before though, and for A Levels it's recommended you do continual revision throughout the year.

I'm in the same boat as you and we can do this. It largely depends on memory. But it's possible.

What's the alternative, to just sit around and do nothing?
Either you work hard now and can enjoy your summer to relax, or you slack off now and then when you have time off you'l wish you had spent more time revising.

I feel this is happening to a lot of people, including me. Keep putting things on the back burner but exams start next week and yes, there are about three of them which are really important (2 english, 1 maths) so of course its not too late, just think, revising tomorrow, 45 minute periods and then breaks for a couple of topics you struggle on could make a difference. A few past papers or new specimen papers etc could help too. And the day before, revision can actually help, sort of wrapping things up but a lot of the stuff you use in the exam can come from day before revision so its not too late, just get to work tomorrow and don't stress

I just had an exam which I didn't start revising till the morning of the exam (exam was for 2:30pm). Don't ask but I felt I did really good on it! It sounds like you got a lot more time then me so just work hard at it.

Whether you have too little or too much time left - it can't be changed, so instead of stressing about it - my advice is just revise as much as you can! You sound like me, I too procrastinate and get easily distracted. I find if I go to a library to study it helps me stay focused.

I only started revising about 3 weeks ago and I'm in university lol, albeit you have more exams.

A week of revision is plenty of time to revise for an exam.

Well try and find an app that blocks things on your phone for a certain amount of time then it will make you work. Also dont push yourself when you are revising and take breaks every 45 mins. Dont pressure yourself 🥂🍊
