For all subjects, i am below target and my target grades are only grade 5's. i am trying my best right now i come home after school everyday and try to do as much revision as i can, i have got my mocks next month and i'm really worried. Do you guys have any tips for me to revise and keep information longer in my brain? and do you think i can achieve more than what is expected from me?

    Revise in 30-minute periods with breaks in between.
    Don't do too much - burning out won't help you.
    Revise actively - try writing things out, saying things out loud and of course past-paper questions. I like to take a topic and write down just the key facts, then keep condensing them.

    Remember that it is a marathon, not a 100m sprint. You can't go all-out all the time. Just don't let that be an excuse to be too lazy. Try to find a happy medium, and find other things to do (hobbies, sports, friends etc) when you aren't revising.
