I second this. I just did my exams and my plan was to start revision a month before but I kept procrastinating and everything was *****y and I was getting like under 3 hours sleep for every exam cuz I was revising the night before and in general it was horrible. I'd say start 3 months before, take it slow at first then increase how much you do. This also involves actually LEARNING how to revise which I didn't really know how to. Watch study youtubers they've got good tips like revision with eve, unjaded jade, ibz mo (my fav). Anyway good luck

Start in September, an hour per night, gradually increase this as you come closer to your exams. I personally did a maximum of 2/3 hours a night about a month before my GCSE’s, and the exam period that has just finished cause me very little stress. Good luck! Starting earlier=smaller amount of stress.

try out a range of resources now, and find the ones that work for you!

In the end I used a lot of youtubers (eg Mr Bruff, freesciencelessons, primrose kitten) and Seneca Learning. Did a bit of quizlet initially and then also really close to the exams but didn't actually find it mega useful. I also found that for humanities, flashcards and mind maps helped me a lot.

And I found revision guides really ineffective for me because I didn't pay much attention when going through them. I'm much better at doing engaged learning, which is why I like websites that test you.

But it's completely different for each person. So try from now / September try a few things and then when you find the one that works for you stick with it and do a little bit each day and at least an hour each weekend!

Make notes at the start of year 11. It will take you probably a month or 2 to complete, if you take your time, which is fine. Then you can chill by actively engaging in classwork by asking for more work and just go over your notes. Up until the Easter holidays or earlier if you want, do past papers and you'll easily be able to get a good grade.
