    Not too late. Depends how well you work and how smart you are. I did GCSEs in 2016 and got 9a*s, and a lot of my revision I did on the day of the exam by waking up at 5 am. If you want to get work done in the next few months I would recommend: deactivating social media until exams are over, not wasting your time on eg TV or games, and to work smart, not hard.
    Make sure your revision is active; passive revision is terrible. By this I mean it is much better to take notes from the textbook than to read the textbook.

    It depends, but it's not too late if you revise consistently and effectively. But not too much, your mental health is important.

    Day and night, stay focused. Past papers, what you get wrong, do again, and again, and again until you get 90% plus on every relevant past paper on the internet.

    we do uni revision in one month literally.... and its alot more, no its definitely not too late, you just need to organize, what u dont know, what u can still grasp, and accept what u just dont and get a little bit good at everything and really good at your fav subjects..


    even though that just sounded all over the place...

    kids i will say this, if revision isnt affecting your mental state your not doing it right tbf.

    No it's not too late as long as you put in the hours from now on. Work out a schedule, diary etc. Get those index cards done etc and get revising asap. Make it your priority to revise, so put EVERYTHING ELSE on hold.

    No, just no. You don't need to work "day and night".

    People on here need to calm down about revising for GCSEs. You're not locked to a certain grade because you only started x months before the exams. I got all A*s and started in March(ish).

    Definitely not, keep your head high. I barely revised and I was predicted a 5 for English last year and I got a 9 in my GCSEs. I was in the same predicament and I am now in A levels, you got this! I believe in you!
