Hey! It's never to late to do something, you're better starting now than doing nothing at all. At this time you need to accept there's no way you can go through every specification you have, so you need to pick weak points, things you need to work on, then get your priorities in order, make a list of the things you most need to work on, be selective.

If there's a subject you need to remember loads of information on a topic, getting someone to test you with roughly written flashcards can be a good idea, or reading the textbook and then 'blurting' (filling a page with all the things you remember from the textbook) can be another good way to get information into your head easily.

With subjects like maths jumping straight into questions can work quite well, you can learn well by doing things, and if you don't know how to do a question, do it alongside your maths book or a text book to help you through it.

English is more awkward to revise in my opinion, I didn't revise enough for it during my GCSE's and don't really know enough about the new specification to give you much advice. Although for literature if you're a fairly fast reader, re-reading the books is never a bad idea, I didn't and I regret it.

Good luck! Make the best use of these final few weeks, you'll thank yourself for it :yep:

I think you can actually learn a lot by practising questions! Or at least, that's what scientists say (http://www.learningscientists.org/le...ieval-practice).

So I would try past papers even if you think you don`t know much. You can use them to make notes, if you want! But just passively reading revision guides is probably not very effective.

Some youtube channels are good too, like Primrose Kitten for Chemistry and Mr Bruff for English.
And some free websites let you practice questions, like Seneca learning and Quizzlet

good luck!
