    what is the latest a person could start revising for gcses?
    No revision at all if you want to.

    In reality most people benefit from revision.

    Most people I think have started by now. You can always slow down.

    It also depends on how bright and what grades you want.

    I started in September, now I just CBA for revision. So basically if you're going to revise, don't start in September

    I'm going to sound really awful and right now I'm in college right now and I regretted the mistake I made during GCSE season but I didn't revise at all. Don't get me wrong. I walked out with some amazing grades like a 9 in English Lit, a few B grades, C's and a 7 in English Language but I also scraped my pass in maths and I left with a 4. AND I failed all my sciences because I got D's in all of them simply because I didn't revise. Now I'm doing A-level and I'm always revising and reading ahead because I don't ever want to make the same mistakes again. I was lucky that the questions were very easy for my year of exams. I suggest that you revise early, even if it's simply just reading the next subtopic in a textbook or reading over the lesson before's work. You don't need to kill yourself with revision. To start off with just do 15 minutes per subject per week and lengthen the time limit as exam season gets closer
