Well my mocks are just around the corner - in fact, they're exactly in two weeks. I feel like I'm not ready but I don't know what to do. There's just so much that I don't know where to start. So please hit me up with your best cramming advice!!

Don't even stress I got all Bs and Cs in my GCSE mocks then got in to a grammar school sixth form in Birmingham. Just put in like 2/3 hours every day till your mocks and more on the weekend and see what you can do. Then you'll know how much you need to do for the real things.

Make short revision cards for each subject. Make sure they are concise and to the point. Add drawings to help you remember things easily, and create acronyms if that helps you too. Do plenty of questions after you have completed the short notes in each topic. x

Start now. Don't just scan through a textbook thinking that just scanning it will absorb information. Slowly go through the textbook so it doesn't have to be recapped. As soon as you have revised an area, do practice questions on it without the textbook. Do this for every chapter/area and it should be ok, provided you're doing non-trivial questions!

Also if you know you're good at something do not waste too much time on it. The short-term confidence boost from doing trivial questions isn't worth it in the long run for the other areas that are lacking.

i know this might be a bit weird, but, what sixth form did you get in to? i’m from Birmingham, and a lot of my friend are applying, but i’m not sure my grades are good enough x
