I'm in year 11 and will be sitting my GCSE's this academic year. But, I've got mixed advice on when to start revising.

I've been told by most people to start proper revision just before easter- others have said January, some December. Others have said they revised the night before and morning of the exam (and still passed with great grades) and I am perplexed lol.

Anyways- anyone know when the best time is for me to start doing serious revision? I have my mocks in December which I'll start revising for soon.

What subjects do you do?
For science I use flash cards.
For maths I do past papers.
For english I write Cordell notes- search it up on youtube, it's a great way to note take.
And for RE I just use a textbook to answer questions.

I take computer science, history and drama.
For history I just look through my notes and write key things down.
Computer science I use Seneca learning- a great free website.
For drama- ngl never really had to revise for that, it's more practical.

But I'd use Seneca learning- it's a useful website with a ton of GCSE subjects to revise.

I’m also in year 11 and for the Sciences I use flash cards. I read the examiners notes from the GCSEs this year and they said that the last year 11s did not do so well with the required practical questions. So we must know the methods in doing the practicals and understand graph questions etc. For me, flash cards are the best way of revising since I’m using all my senses- hearing, seeing, touching etc. and it also you tests you on your memory.

What I do that I think is useful is that I add all the subject specifications onto my favourites page into Safari so it’s easier for me when I’m revising and see what content might come up during the exams. I also use this app called ‘flipd’ which removes your apps for particular hours so it stops you from procrastinating. There is also a timer feature in which if you exit the app the timer restarts. I think this is very useful in the long run!

All I can say now is good luck don’t procrastinate but learn when to rest and not over do yourself with too much work!
