    I need advice on balancing life with gcses on the way

    2 hour's or maybe 1 and a half (idk) of revision each night with a timetable set up for x amount of study done each week and organise them in blocks of half an hour. It's how I did it,i don't have many freinds but when I wanted to do something I always had time for it

    And it's not giving you depression, gcses ain't that hard and they don't matter much.

    Making a revision timetable is probably the best thing to do. Don't block up all your free time, you do need a break from revision otherwise it becomes ineffective and nothing stays in your brain.
    Although GCSE's seem like the end of the world, they're really not and no matter how much pressure you get from teachers or your parents you've just gotta focus on the most important aspects of GCSE's which are passing maths, english and whatever subjects you need to do the a levels you want (if you want to do alevels that is) and just being sure that you know yourself that you did your best.
