    My exams begin on May 15. I have done on and off revision from october because I had my mocks in November and another set in February. So have started the official revision now and am just wondering if i am doing enough for this time.

    I haven set an hour after school everyday and on Saturdy for one subject - and 3 weeks before exams start I am planning to do 3 hours a day until the exams begin.
    Does this sound enough for those who have done their GCSEs?
    I don't want to get to May and be scared that I haven't done enough and start freaking out.

    Advice would be nice, thank you.

    I'd recommend not just doing 1 subject a night, as you remember more if you do small chunks of multiple subjects. so possibly do 2 subjects a night with 40 minutes on each? Or 30 minutes on each and then 5 minutes testing on each at the end?
    But yes, I think that seems a sensible amount of time. I'm doing similar!
