I just finished year 11 and honestly just enjoy the summer. I didn’t revise at all for my GCSE’s only the night before lol but I suggest preparing a bit towards the end and start when begin year 11. It’s a crap year but good luck.

No studying for the first few weeks. Maybe one week before, go over all your notes.

If you really will have less than 1 hour a day to revise because of dancing, then study ahead after having a summer break. This is easier for subjects like maths, the sciences, history, religous studies.. a bit trickier for languages, English...

What GCSE exam boards are you doing? If you are doing AQA 9-1...then re-read all your books and your poems in the summer and try to memories them. Advice coming from a student who got triple 9s in maths, English lit and lang (only 2000 people in the UK got that).

I mentioned English as I feel there's less structure to the courses (you're given books and plays and poems and have to analyse them ... painful) and you can study a number of techniques for this and make loads of notes on different themes like love, conflict, power... which is okay, assuming you know exactly what you need to know. But you can do all that via independent study and not really be sure if you're prepared or not.

Whereas with the sciences and other essay based subjects that you've got a textbook, you process and understand everything in it and you're okay.

But that's my perspective as someone who was taught for their GCSEs, including English, but self studied sciences later on. And I think that English is one of the toughest GCSEs to do really well in.

You can actually know whether you are prepared for English or not if you re-read the book multiple times. I read Inspector calls 10 times (because it was a good book) and it is actually really easy to get a 9 in English for English literature. English lang is another story.

Ha Ha ha . I did exactly inspector calls, jekyll and hyde and macbeth on AQA. Tips for english lit? Look at other people's essays on the internet-not talking about bbc bitesize. Also try and find other school's revision quide pdf documents

Here are some useful links for Macbeth...not sure if they work tbh

English lang on the other hand is all down to you. How sophisticated you are as a person or how many "interesting" vocab (not talking about using the thesaurus) you know.

I would have the first week of summer off and then maybe do 30 minutes - 1 hour of revision every day. I'd have the last week off though.
