    YOU CAN DO THIS!!! make a plan with short term and long term goals (eg. finish revising physics by the end of term as a long term goal, then individula topics by the end of each week as short term goals)

    Make sure you also do some practice questions at the end of each topic, to ensure you have learnt the topics. For example, im doing A-Level maths, so every morning before school ill do a practice test (or half depending on if i have enough time) and mark it when i get home. Also use the spec to make sure you havent missed any key points.

    Prioritise subjects if you have to, spend more time on the core subjects as they are by far the most important.

    AND JUST REMEMBER, take regular breaks and find what motivates you must to work hard and efficiently. Make sure you get enough sleep each night, if you dont it will affect the rest of your day and you wont be as productive as you like.

    well you have to make sure you're doing productive revision and working hard at the areas you find hard first

    then make sure you're doing the right form of revision , don't sit staring at your books for hours , do that the night before the exam (before bed) or even before you go to the exam hall in the morning. Past papers are the key here, especially for subjects like maths and sciences , do as much as those as humanely possible

    also use your teachers as much as you can , if you don't understand something go up to them, if you missed a lesson , go ask them for work , hell even if you need more papers go up to them and ask.

    Allow the Homework, it’s not important when your that close to GCSE. If possible try and make as much notes as you can from text books and Youtube within this month and after that start doing past papers. I mean all of the past papers you can find. Make a revision timetable (including free time) and once you’ve done all that don’t look at your phone or go on the computer to do any revision. Let someone take care of your streaks on SnapChat and concentreate. Go over and oer your notes until your familiar with it. Do the papers and any questions you get wrong go over the corresponding topic. Keep doing this until your tests are over. Trust me G its not that hard and the holiday after it oohh the best holiday ever. Just get on the grind now. Believe me most people haven’t started properly yet. I believe in you Man

    Thank you. I need to really ****ing fix up. I just always revise the night before or the morning of the exam. I can always get around a 7/8 like that but never the holy grail of the 9. I really want to get a 9 so badly now.

    Honestly, do not panic. I did my GCSEs last year and i hadn't started revising now, I didn't properly start until well after easter, or revise at all for the mocks (i failed most) and I still did pretty well in the end - i got a 9 in eng lang, 6 in maths, 7 in eng lit, A* in RS, B in history and C in french and C in all science (I took triple so it was super hard). If i was you, I'd just work on getting all the overdue homework done and out the way. Forget about revising until thats all done - the homework will hopefully help you consolidate work you have been doing anyway. Do not panic, and remember that the exam period it actually quite long so for your last few exams you have a lot longer to revise for than your first exam, so whilst you're in exam period you'll be able to cross exams off and focus your revision onto the remaining exams. I was so stressed at this point last year too, but i guarantee you will not flop. You have to believe in yourself and be positive! Otherwise you will get nowhere

    I think the best thing you can do is to just start now. I advise doing lots of past papers and reading the mark schemes which are basically the mother load of all tests (in my eyes at least). Make a timetable and stick to it, it won’t be easy but if you really want to achieve high grades then you have to work for it.
