    Hey guys. I just stared my 10 GCSE’s in September and am a good three months in. I’m doing 10 including double science, businsss, history, sociology and Italian. For my GCSES I am predicted a few 7’s, mostly 8’s and a couple of 9’s. At the moment I’m working at a grade 5/6 for all subjects (just started year 10). Do you think in 1.5 years time I can push all those 5/6’s up to 8’s and with how many hours revision per day?

    Currently I’m working on quizlet making revision cards for all of my subjects, which I hope to complete by January 15th. So I was wondering how else I can revise to get the grades I want. Any advice or ideas about anything else with GCSEs would also be appreciated. Thanks!

    The earlier you start revising the easier it will be . Your Exams may seem a way off , but they will come quickly . Make sure your revision is active and that you always stay in the right mentality .

    As said above - And don’t tire yourself out too soon! I’ve seen people achieve great things despite only starting to revise in like Feb/March of Year 11, it’s more important to have the knowledge in your head come your exams.

    Take it slow, but keep it ticking along. Good luck!

    Make sure you don't do too much hardcore revison so you don't get tired out or stressed cus it's still early days. However constantly review your work in year 10 so everything seems solid in your head by year 11 so you can max out your revison then.
    Good luck you can definitely get those 8s and 9s!

    You should keep it to about 4 hours a week, that is more than enough at this stage. Even that might be too much. And yes you can easily go from a 5 to and 8/9 in 1 and half years. You just need to work hard, take good notes and do lots of practice questions ☺️
