    Hello everyone. So, I’m in year 10. I’m currently going through the syllabus for every single subject and writing detailed notes, so for year 10 I have the whole course condensed into one textbook that I can revise. However, I’ve got about 4 tests in 3 weeks that are GCSE mocks that I need to get 7/8’s in. What should I do? Should I put long term notes on hold for a month and revise for my mocks? The month lost could be crucial though. What are your opinions?

    Thanks!

    If the notes are the most effective use of your time, and you can remember the information you are condensing then you could use these mocks as a benchmark to see how much you know at this stage, and it’ll prove/disprove how effective your notes have been. Some people think notes aren’t the most effective but i would be interested to know how you find them?

    Also you’re in Year 10, and whilst it’s great you’re so proactive, I don’t think taking a month out to show your teachers what you’re capable of will do you any harm.

    In my opinion, I’d say reduce the amount of notes you make, and spend maybe half you’re time on notes and half on mock revision so you’re not missing out on either.

    Well done on your work ethic though!! Any questions just give me a shout!
