Hello, I am currently in Year 9 going into Year 10 in a few weeks. When should I start revising for my GCSE exams in Year 11 and how much time should I spend revising each day? The subjects I am taking for my GCSEs are English Language, English Literature, Mathematic, Triple Science, Religious Studies, Geography & French.

start making notes and revision materials in year 10, you'll thank yourself in year 11.

Try 1-2 hours a day in Year 10, then increase to 2-3 hours in year 11. When its near exam time, bust out some 4-5 hour sessions. Easier said than done (tried this myself-failed) but if you stick with this, you will get guaranteed 8/9s

I revised an hour before each one and still got As.
But since GCSE's have gotten harder, I suggest perhaps around spring/ end of winter in yr 11

To be honest, I disagree. As long as you revise well for your Year 10 tests and final exams, as well as Year 11 tests and mocks, and keep the notes you've used for those, you don't need to do anything extra until it's time to start revising for actual GCSES. (Feb half term if you feel it's necessary, or later if you prefer. I'd say the absolute minimum starting point is Easter hols.)

Hi Sidra, the best advice is to start making notes in year 10/11, because making good detailed notes takes a few months at least! When exams come near, learn those notes- one/two topics a day for each subject. You should be allright, you have a lot of time! Good luck for year 10. Hope this helps!

I'm in year 11 now doing mu GCSEs. I wish I'd started revising after Christmas in year 10. After Christmas, just (for subjects like geography and triple science) go through the revision guide and make notes. Do maybe 30 minutes a day. Then, in the summer between year 10 and year 11, just relax and enjoy it. When you are in year 11, keep doing 30 minutes a day until Christmas. Enjoy Christmas holidays and don't revise. Then, after Christmas, do 1 hour of revision each day. When it gets to February half term, enjoy that half term and relax. After February half term, do 2 hours a day. Then when it gets to Easter, do 3-4 hours a day.

I’d say revise an hour a night now and make que cards of everything ASAP and then you won’t have to stress too much in year 11. That’s what I wish I had done
