I am starting Year 11 in September and wondered if anyone could give me any advice. This year I didn't do as well as I could on my exams only achieving a C on one subject.
However, I would like to get some A's for my GCSE exams. Does anyone have any advice? For example, how many hours I should revise each day etc...
Thanks

Hi, I'm going into year 11, on average I do 5-6 hours per day covering minimum 2 subjects. Really it's based on how much you put in but if you just give me a dir ft message, I'm sure we could talk a bit more.

I just finished year 11, my main advise is to revise and take notes as soon as u start, I know it is the last thing u want to here but everyone I know and myself wished they took notes as soon as they started such as flash cards/ spider diagram, it goes by soo quick and before u know it, it is the exam. But please don't stress about it, focus mainly on the subjects u need especially math and English, but revise all ur subjects. Do well in ur controlled assessments and ISAs as they can really boost up ur grade in the final exam. I revised from 4- 7/8pm on school days but nearly the whole day from 7/8am- 8pm on weekends however this varied. Please don't stress too much, It can get overwhelming but u will manage and it will all be over

Don't do what I did in the first term and forget about homework and tests. I managed to get myself back in the swing of things in December/January but I felt so awful during that period - I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
Basically, don't procrastinate. Get stuff done.

Also, don't compare your grades with other people. It's easier said than done but comparing yourself just brings you down so much.

Good luck!
