    It’s February and GCSEs are coming up, February is the time I want to start revising but I don’t really know how, like how much should I do , is it daily?? There’s a lot of content so I’m unsure where to start. I have mocks in a week so I’m revising for them but I guess any revision I do goes towards the final exams..

    Advice from those who have done their GCSEs and how they revised would be great

    Personally I didn’t need much revision, so I definitely wasn’t revising in February. But of course if you think this is what you need, then go ahead, it can only help!

    What I used to do is rewrite my notes or make posters, stick them on my wall so I can’t escape revision hahah. But also making flash cards, or mind maps, is a great idea. I’d say for GCSEs maybe do hour long sessions, with a break halfway through to make sure you don’t get bored and stop concentrating. Do this for each subject, maybe do two sessions a week or three depending on how difficult you find the subject (for science for example I’d recommend doing more than for something like history). For subjects like history or English, I’d write out facts, dates and quotes. Talk to your teachers about what is likely to come up because they look at past papers (you can look at them too on your exam boards website). Good luck!
