I am in Year 9, and i want to do the best in my GCSE's for me and my parents, but should I be doing maybe 1 or 30 minutes of GCSE revision on subjects I want to do ON TOP of homework? Or should I not worry at this moment, and focus just on this time?

You've probably not have started doing any GCSE content yet, so there's no point in stressing about doing any revision. Focus on what you're doing at the moment in class because you'll need it to understand what's going on next year

Revise and start now because by the time of your GCSE you'll be getting 7-9 and be so smart
Hope this helps

If you’ve started the courses then yes. If you’ve not, it’s a waste of time but make sure you understand what’s covered.
My school does end of year exams so if you have something similar revise hard for them.

Revise or read ahead, you mean? Far too early to start revision, you've probably barely started the content.

Enjoy year 9 while it lasts. Have fun while you can. I spent the majority of my year 9 messing around and I don’t regret it one bit because now I’m in year 11 and it’s non stop revision 😂

No, there's no need to put yourself under unnecessary stress. You can start revising in year 11 and get top grades.

If your starting the course then yes, but if not there's no point. You can start reading the topics but dont do any hardcore revision. Enjoy yr 9 its one of the best years!

If you haven't started you're actual GCSE's yet and you haven't started your options then there's not much point because you haven't covered the content yet. However it's important that you revise for any mini assessments you have this year so that you can get used to revision for tests and find out how you revise and what type of learner you are so you know what works best for you so that next year you can get straight to the GCSE revision. It's important to make sure you're understanding everything you're doing in class at the moment as it will help next year. So briefly go over things.

Here's my advice:

Start revising Sciences as they are carried on from Year 9, and pay close attention in Maths. Subjects where you need to just learn information and regurgitate it, you don't need to bother, but if you're getting below 75% in a subject, revise it.

I would say just make sure you understand everything you've done so far in your lessons, then you don't have to worry about not understanding things in year 11

Would you say it helped you now that you're in year 11?

I'd say start in the middle of year ten.
