    A lot of hard work. You'll need to sacrifice your social life.

    I'm in the same position, I achieved mainly 7s and 8s in December mocks but pretty sure I've gone down in Feb mocks. Because of the snow day today and yesterday I've managed to make a specific revision time table which is per week (I know I couldn't follow a per day one). I think it'll work in terms of content retention as All topics are revised at least twice and I've included past papers so I'm hoping it'll balance out. So I think most of the work is put it to organising revision and once that is done it seems like less hard work.

    In the December and year 10mocks I focused on exam technique which I find is super useful even if I don't really know the stuff to answer it. Although because all the GCSEs are new there really is no proper indication of grade boundaries either I guess. Good luck with whatever revision you decide on.

    Well i'm currently literally in the middle of year 10, 90% of my revision is focused on maths and science (45% for the each of them) and the rest 10% on all other subjects. The reason why i prioritise maths and science is so by year 11 i can do the higher tier papers for them.

    I think you will have to put in a lot of time for those grades- to get those grades requires either religious levels of effective revision or high levels of effort as you go through the course and in many cases both
