    when is the perfect time to start revising for gcses

    3/4 months before the first GCSE exam, so around February or early March by the latest. I started late February and I'm set to get straight A's and A*'s.

    I started mine during the Easter holidays. I basically covered the entirety of Additional Science because we had an exam, which determined, whether we could do higher or foundation tier for Science.

    In May, I did a bit of light revision - nothing too serious. All I ever did was revise a bit of Core Science and some Mathematics.

    And the day(s) just before the exam, I did something ridiculous like 20 hours a day. Basically, I crammed and fluked the exams.

    The perfect time to start doing revision is at the start of March but it varies from person to person.

    Depends how confident you are with the material. I revised the day before on the old spec, worked out fine for me haha
