    I am currently in year 11 and am constantly worried I haven't been doing enough work. How much revision is current year 11 students doing and how much do you think is enough to get good grades?

    Not enough, if you go off the advice of any of my teachers. I do around 2 hours per day and 3 at weekends- I know some of my friends are doing 5-6 hours a day and are despairing, unsurprisingly. I think what I'm doing is enough though.

    Im personally doing 3 hours a night and 4, sometimes 5 hours at the weekends. Although I’ve just started revising this intensely, I was doing about an 1 hour a night before. I passed 8/11 of my mocks with most at grade 4 and a few at 5 and one grade 6. Now aiming for at least 5’s and 6s, maybe 1 or two 7s, the mocks were not what I was hoping for.

    I do revision whenever I feel motivated enough. If I force myself to sit down and revise for hours then I know nothing will actually be remembered and I’ll just be wasting time. Don’t stress too much about revision. Just start as early as you can and keep yourself motivated to do well 👍 Some good advice is to make flashcards whenever you can. They’re quick and easy to make and you can take 10-15 minutes a day to go through them for some quick casual revising when you don’t really feel like writing anything or doing past papers 🙂

    You're deeping it too much.

    Bro, most people didn't even start revising till Easter holidays started when i did my GCSEs.

    I personally started revising the week before and for some subjects i did it the night before and barely aced ( 2 Cs 4 Bs 3 As) the exams.

    I do about 2 hours a night at most and have done so for roughly the past two weeks. I didn’t revise at all for my mock exams and I passed them all with the majority at 7 and one 8 and 2 9’s. For some reason, I learn well by talking about what I am revising and by doing quizzes. Hope that helps 😇

    As a year 12, my advice would to be to only start at easter- a few people burnout by going too hard too early ( and I think most people do by the end), for example I went from finding it hard to relax few days before first exam as felt could work to deciding to give myself day off before last exam . I personally did an hour or so pre- easter cos I had History early.
    Other than that just find what works for u in easter- with any luck school will start doing revision too before study leave.
    Personally my plan was to finish notes for any exam I had about 2/3 weeks before then do practice questions.

    At the moment I only study on Sundays LOL which isn't good I know, but I've realised that I work a lot better when I'm under pressure(For example, knowing that I have mocks coming up).
    Also I'm generally not that motivated during the week, I'm slowly changing that, but anyone got any advice?

    If you hand write your notes (like me) try printing resources and maybe try a faster but still effective note-taking technique? I've been using the Cornell Method and mindmaps

    Good Luck!
