    When I was revising I used flash cards, I wrote notes and done past paper questions. These helped me. I also would just look over my notes each week of school so that I would remember it for the next week

    I feel your worry but panicking is just gonna make it worse.
    Instead, look at your strengths and weaknesses in each of your subjects. Focus first on your weaknesses. Use different revision techniques that work for you. Personally, I can't do revision cards, but I know it helps a lot of other people so you can see if it works for you. You should have some mocks before GCSEs, so you practice with exams in there too. The GCSEs are in May; start consistently revising now, and you'll be fine. But at the same time, think about your wellbeing. Do your hobbies, hang out with friends; whatever you like doing, otherwise your motivation to revise will just vanish.

    Here comes the unsexy answer................ Don't rely on motivation. That can be affected by sleepiness and hunger. Rather, use self-discipline. Figure out which subjects you need to revise, figure out where you can make time to revise (could be 05:00 - 08:00 in the morning, or 18:00 - 20:00 for some ideas) and then find a place where you won't be disturbed (this means no phones within reach or thought, its a distraction) then turn up when you say you would and then revise. Write notes, use those card things, do what you've got to do. There's no use in panicking, it just takes you away from your game. Just take a breath, settle, you've got this......

    Hope this helps!
