Will I be able to achieve grades 7/8 if I start my gcse revision now.

I’m struggling with sticking timetables
and my school gives mocks but they fit it in just one week leaving people with 3-5 exams each day so I end getting grades I’m not proud of. And it also mucks up my pattern for my official revision notes that are detailed.

But I need new techniques on revision especially with English and re

Ah ok, it’s gonna be hard work but maybe work on exam technique? Practise past papers and set yourself questions. You can do this !!

its never 2 late!!! I took my Gcse Rms in year 10 and i was achieving D’s and C’s x i revised 2 weeks before and got a A* 93/100 and B 76/100!! Theres time just make sure your awake of what 2 revise each day! For rms/re i made cue cards,mindmaps and past papers For my mindmaps i would name the topic in the centre of the page e.g Abortion and one side do Christianity and on the other Islam. I did this for most things and it really worked. Also if u find that your not achieving the top top marks e.g 6/8 or 5/8 then make sure u include religious quotes.

Honestly if you have some sort of natural intellect and revise you'll smash your exams. My revision consisted of reading through the revision guides the night and morning before an exam and I came out with 7 in maths, literature and language, A* in all three sciences, and A in everything else (I was ever so lazy, in hindsight I wish that I had done actual revision). Trust me you'll do fine there is honestly no reason whatsoever to worry, if you begin now and relax you'll do very well in your exams.

It`s not too late! You`ll be fine as long as you revise in an effective way.
So like highlighting does not help. Period. Reading notes also doesn`t.

Past exams and questions - lots and lots of questions - are the best methods. There are some good websites that provide questions, like Quizzlet and Seneca Learning. Definitely worth using them.
If you can come up with a timetable where you plan what to study in each day, you`ll be more relaxed. It works much better than to decide what do revise on the day without planning.
