    I have LOADS of tests coming up next week and, obviously I'm feeling a bit stressed, because I have to tackle revision as well as all the regular homework and, over the weekend prior engagements (aka something fun that I had already planned). So, obviously there's a lot on my plate and was wondering if anyone had any good revision methods, or a way that thy could suggest that I could organise my time wisely, giving a good balance of revision, homework and some free time for my sanity!
    Thanks for your help, I look forward to hearing your suggestions.
    These tests include biology (which is the one I am most struggling with because my teacher is rubbish), business, chemistry and maths. Those are the tests that I'm most worried about, I also have Latin, but that's just vocab, and english, but you can't really revise for that because that's just analysis.

    I always find making a revision timetable helps (the one on TSR is really good). If you're looking to learn things quickly, I found flash cards really helpful, as well as reading my notes out loud. However, I would make sure to hand write flash cards because that helps the information go into your brain!

    Personally, I prioritise homework, which I finish as soon as I get home. Then I have a break for about an hour before starting revision.I stop half an hour before I want to go to bed. Typically at GCSE this would be my evening:

    4:15 home
    4:30 start homework
    6:00 stop for break and dinner
    7:00 start revision
    9:30 finish revision.

    During tests teachers didn't give me as much work though, but I hope you found something helpful here

    What I do is split school work up into 30 min blocks, fully focused. Then leave 30 mins for FIFA, or free time etc. Then do another 30 mins revision. This works really well for me if I do it constantly.
    Don't revise for like 2 hours straight, because realistically you can't do that, not for the full duration solidly.
