I haven't started my revision either and aim to start next week. It will be less stressful if you come up with a clear plan as soon as possible.

OMG, I'm in year 12 and I started revising a month before my GCSE exams started lol.

But what I did was wrong, it's good that you've started now.

Revising for each subject is different because each subject has its own style.

But generally, just learn and revise all the content for each subject thoroughly ASAP so that you can get straight to practice questions because the practice questions are where you improve.

I did bits here and there but started properly in March/April. There’s no time limit for 9s. I was finishing my physics revision the morning I took the exam and it worked out fine. Definitely wouldn’t recommend leaving it quite that late but there’s no need to stress, the more you do now the less there will be to do later, but it’s not like if you don’t start now you’ll fail all your exams!

It can't be that hard you have to have hope in yourself! I'm hoping to start revision soon and I'm aiming for grade 9s also. Start off by writing everything that needs to be done and how you're going to do it and then make a realistic revision timetable with at least one day off and try to stick to it.

160 days is approximately 5 and a half months. I would say revise everything you have done so far for each subject in 3 or 3 and 1/2 months. Use the specification for each subject when you are revising especially for science as they outline exactly what you need to know for the exams. Get the spec from the subjects' exam board's website.

Use the rest of the time practising and practising and practising and practising and practising. Don't stop. For subjects like English, do loads and loads of questions and then give the essays to your teacher and ask them to mark it. This way you can improve using their feedback. Do all of the past papers and all of the questions you can find online and from your school's resources.

Trust me do not stress. You have nothing to be nervous about. Trust me doing the work now rather than later is so much better because by the time your exams approach, you will be ready but other will start panicking because they have barely done any revision.

Anyway, teachers make GCSEs sound like the end of the world but trust me it's easier than you think. If you start your revision to the best of your ability now, I can guarantee you will get all 9s 8s and 7s.

I left it very late, you’ve still got plenty of time. I don’t know anyone who was seriously revising around this time in the year. That doesn’t mean it’s bad to start now, but this isn’t starting late at all and you’ll be fine to get 9s if you revise effectively enough
