    I'm wondering what are the best techniques to revise subjects, when to start revising and if you have any other tips. I'm predicted 7's and 8's in everything and I think one 9. The subjects I'm taking are English Lit, English Language, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Geography, Maths, Further Maths, RS, DT résistant materials, French, and Music.
    Any ideas? I'm in year 11 and also have mocks in December (and grade 6 piano) how should I revise for them aswell. Thanks in advance

    I recommend using memrise and learning your french in little chunks because learning a whole language in a short period of time is really difficult. You can download it on your phone or use it on your computer but either way it is a sure way to learn french phases and key words if you look at it regularly.

    I disagree with Reversed Flash that you should start revising in March, I think that you should begin as soon as possible, not for hours each day but just little chunks here and there. For example, learning a language takes time so I would recommend doing half an hour each day of learning vocabulary or practicing your speaking. Also, revise thoroughly for all small tests because when you then come to revise for the real GCSE exams it will be so much more easy.

    I'm trying to do around 1 hour of general revision per day (2 on weekends) and focus on things i don't understand, like french and then go to 2 hours everyday for Christmas mocks. then after February when we stop learning new things i think ill go to 3 hours per weekday and 4-5 on weekends. we don't have study leave so ill have to work revision around the rest of school.

    print off the specifications for your subjects and make sure you understand or make notes on each point of the specification. Use the official textbooks to help you with this. CGP revision guides were useful for sciences to help you memerise the key points. Do all the past papers for your subjects especially maths and sciences.

    For English make sure you use your teachers. If you want them to check your essays ask them and they will probably be willing to help you. Make sure you note down key quotes or unique points on books for your coursework.

    start memerising the case studies if necessary in geography.

    Stay motivated. for some people motivational youtube videos help but for me I would just remember that your working towards a future goal whether that be a space in a college or getting into oxfard or cambridge etc.

    I hope this helps
