So it's the summer holidays and 1 week is up and we've got 5 weeks left, and i haven't reviewed the things I learnt in year 10 and iv'e got my GCSE in May 2018. I'm going into year 11 and I don't want to waste 6 weeks doing nothing, what should I do to stop myself from forgetting things? (when I hardcore revise something it literally stays in my brain for like a week!?) Should I take a quick glance or should I take up my holidays by revising? The stress is starting to get to me already and I haven't even started Year 11!?

If you're going to stress this much, it's not worth it. Do minimal revision over summer.

You're going to burn out if you do any hardcore revision now. You need to relax and go back to school feeling refreshed. I know it's hard, but please don't feel stressed.

One thing I did during the year 10-year 11 holidays was to upload everything I had learnt onto Quizlet, or use a pre-made Quizlet. After this, going through one each day, for maybe 5-30 minutes really helps information stay in your brain.

Doesn't it take a lot of time to put all the information onto quizlet though?

Depends what subject, some took me longer than others. Most of the time, I used Quizlets that other people had made, they worked really well for me

I wouldn't say my grades make me smart. By TSR standards, they're probably average.

I'd say I started GCSE revision around mid-April time, and all that revision was pretty much memorising a revision guide for the sciences/geography, memorising all the dates in the three textbooks for history and then it was just past papers for the other subjects

So it took you like a month to understand what you needed to remember!? Did you used to do revision before April like reviewing some notes?

Apart from revising two weeks for my December internal mock exams, no. I'm sort of like you, I will forget everything after a week (like you said) so I wouldn't have found revising so far away from exams useful.

Nope. I discovered the joys of Minecraft modpacks in the summer of year 10, so I was glued to my desktop all summer :P

Whaat! I reckon you are really intelligent, I don't understand how someone would revise a month before their GCSE's and get good grades? I've seen people revise like 4 months before exams and not get as good as the grades you have gotten. What were your predicted grades?
