    6 months left until GSCE's and I feel like a I've already failed. I don't know how to revise, I'll probably fail everything because I'm not smart and I usually do. What do I do now?

    You don’t even need to be revising now tbh. Start revising after Christmas? And the only way you can fix it is by actually revising

    6 months is a long time, if you really feel like you can’t revise enough for all just focus on like 5(what most unis and 6th forms require) as a last resort

    You can't fail them if you've not even taken them yet.

    I didn't revise for my GCSEs and granted I didn't get straight A*/As or anything (I did get a few), but I did get 10 A*-B (this was in 2010 haha). Don't sweat it. Just make sure you understand the fundamentals and if you don't, ask your teacher questions.

    If I can do that without revising and with extenuating circumstances, you'll be fine. Negative self-talk will be your downfall though, so stop doing that.

    Relax dude, don't give up so easily. 6 months is plenty of time to get in check and revise properly. Right now focus on organising your time and make a good realistic timetable for revision and make sure you stick to it. For the actual revision, I would use the spec and write notes on it so that I know what's expected of me and then I'd move on to the actual textbook we use in school.

    If staying focused during revision is a problem, try out the Pomodoro technique (https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=4078095). It's what i used when i couldn't focus during my GCSEs.

    Here's some other links on revision:

    Good luck with everything, it's gonna be long and boring but keep trying. Hope this helps!
