    Hi I’m going into year 11 and I’m really nervous and panicking a lot. I did pretty well in my year 10 mocks and managed to bag myself a fair amount of passes without revising at all. But my problem is I really struggle to revise as I get easily distracted as a result of my mild ADHD (it is very mild though) I suffer from really bad anxiety and it’s very bad as a result of nerves.

    I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on ways to revise ?
    And also if anyone has any tips for taking control of my anxiety during GCSE year ?
    Thank you

    It’s different for everyone on how to revise. I tried so many things which just didn’t work for me! I revised for all my exams the night before whilst going to after school sessions with teachers to get that extra bit of help a revision guide or YouTube can’t give me. I just wrote everything out on flashcards condensing notes and focusing on what I really don’t know.

    Because of your anxiety I don’t recommend revising the whole 2 years content in one night because it is a real lot of stress! I would space it out throughout year 11. I wish I started revising in January to master stuff and so things weren’t all cramped in one night or month.

    Also ensure you make a revision time table you should follow and make sure you prioritise subjects depending on your ability.

    Hope I’ve helped abit x

    To be honest, by now you should have mastered your revision technique. But it's okay if you haven't as you have plenty of time.Due to your anxiety, don't revise the night before, but space it out. I would say you should start revising January.Before that, make all your revision notes/cards (whatever you use to revise).
