Hi everyone!

Like the title says - how many days until your first GCSE exam this year?

You can use this site to calculate the number of days - so if your first exam was on the 1st June 2018 it's only 149 days away :eek3:

If you're not sure the date of your first exam, you can find your exam timetables online - here are the ones for Edexcel GCSEs, WJEC GCSEs, AQA GCSEs and OCR GCSEs.

Have you started revising yet? How are you feeling about your exams? Here are some questions about your GCSEs to break the ice and get you motivated

Best Subject: Spanish
Weakest Subject: So many..... perhaps Maths or Physics
Days to go: 131
First Exam: Chemistry AQA
Feeling: (I know that by the time the exam comes around I will be great at all my subjects! (hopefully))

I have mock exams starting tomorrow, which I am concerned about as I know for certain I am going to get a really low mark in as there was not sufficient time to revise the entire course for the majority of the subjects. Although according to many on here, mocks are meant to scare you/prepare you, so I shouldn't let it get to me.

Best Subject: Probably English literature
Weakest subject: Maths...or chemistry...or physics...anything with numbers isn't too great at the moment
Days to go: 131 (uh oh)
First Exam: French listening (god save us all)
Feeling: Image *internal screaming*

I've done my mocks and they were pretty okay, but I'm genuinely scared to start revision next week. I get distracted so easily and I'm such a slow worker that there's no way I could possibly cover everything, but at the same time, I know that when it really matters I can pull myself to get things done. By the time exams roll around I should *hopefully* be more prepared

I would say it's such a good thing that you can recognise your weak areas and work around them though! Just give yourself plenty of breaks so you can work on not being as distracted when you're actually working (you can try things like the pomodoro method) and give yourself plenty of time to work through your revision Good luck!

Best Subject: Not sure, from mocks, English language, sciences or German
Weakest subject: English lit??
Days to go: 131
First Exam: RS, but before that, in April I will have German speaking (not sure of exact date)
Feeling: Image

Scheduling revision and making sure I cover everything in time makes me feel I'll be more than ready for the exams.
Going through the science specs with a fine toothcomb and making flashcards and notes on EVERYTHING is painful but worth it

I’ve just had my mock exams and apart from sociology which I got nearly an A in, I got 4’s and a few 5’s, and my targets are 7’s. I literally have no chance of getting a 7.
