Guys, please respond. I'm so depressed after seeing my mock results. I got 7's and 6's a 9 in history and a bloody 4 in maths.

I'm scared if I don't have time to improve and make these grades into 7's or 8's or maybe a 9 (If I'm lucky)

Please, I need advice? I'm planning on waking up at 3:45 and sleeping at 11 so when I come back from school I would do my homework until 6 and revise for the rest of the day what do you think?

I think that’s unnecessary. You have roughly 4months which is short but definitely enough to improve. Your mock grades aren’t bad at all, so I’d suggest wake up for school normally, come home and do your revision. Waking up at 3:45am and doing 8 hours will just stress you out more. Aim for MINIMUM 1-2 hours a day

To be able to get good results you need to also think about your well-being and health. So personally I don’t think it would be good for you to wake up at 3:45am as sleep is a way that you get your energy. You don’t be want to cram all your information as you will forget it.
I think you should not do any revision before school as your not really that awake at that point. But after school revise for 3-4 hours until 8/9pm and then you rest and on weekends revise for 5/6 hours.
And a tip always start your revision with the subject you find hardest as you will revise better when you first start than when you have been revising for a while.
Hope this helps! Good luck!

i wouldn’t say minimum of 1-2 hours a day if you want really good results, maybe 3-4 on weekdays and then you can 7.5 in the week, but u definitely need sleep my dude

You're going to burn out if you don't get enough sleep and study too much

Yooo, get it from me, you will have a burn out before your exams

Just aim for 4-8hours of study per day.
Maximum 4 hours on days when you have lessons and maximum 8-12hours in holidays or Weekends.
7-8 hours of sleep. And the rest chill as much as you can.
During your revision make sure to take breaks, I just do pomodoros.

Am an Alevel student currently predicted 3A*s, doing bio, chem and math, wouldn’t recommend what I do to anyone unless you doing heavy subjects as well.
On days I have no lessons, I will do 4-6hours of revision in the day and 4-6hours of revision in the night(I have access to a 24hour uni library)which sums up to 8-12hours a day, only on days when I have no lessons. And I sleep 6-10hours, that depends on if I get caught up watching a movie. On days I have lessons I still aim for 4-7

Don't do it. You'll burn out and just make yourself feel even worse- and that won't help your grades at all. You're better off doing a little bit each day, with plenty of sleep and regular exercise, socialising etc. It'll be far more effective and sustainable and you'll feel a lot better for it, too. You can do this!

I often study for 5 hours every day, and will do up to AN INSANE TWELVE HOURS of revision each day in my IGCSE study leave, waking up at 6:00 and sleeping at 22:00.
I will NOT follow that HKDSE top scorer from 2017 on revising FIFTEEN HOURS a day.

To succeed, study smart, not hard. They're not the same thing and your schedule is going to do you more harm than good. Keep sight of the bigger picture-studying isn't, or at least probably shouldn't be, your whole life. Don't just ditch everything for the sake of GCSEs

First things first, talk to your teachers to actually identify the key issues, so that you know more concretely what to work on, and don't just squander time generally glossing over everything every time. Then, bust out the past papers. I'm afraid GCSEs (at least in some subjects) consist heavily of jumping through the markscheme hoops.

This is a really silly idea to be honest mate.

I did my GCSE’s last year, I failed every single one of my mocks. I came out with two 9’s, two 8’s two 7’s etc. I was a bad student and did little revision so many areas of my results lacked. You need four hours in the evening and perhaps six at the weekend if you really want to do well.

Don't do to much or you risk burn out and make sure you have at least 8 hrs of sleep
plan in 3-4 hours of good quality work time into your day and your grades will improve
look at your papers and see where you lost marks and fix them for next time a maths grade is easy to push up as long as you don't make the same mistakes again

Sounds really dumb and could end up giving you worse results.

What about sleep?
What about menatl health?

You could easily burn out and be in a poor state for exams

Sounds like you are on course to do very well.

Find out why you did poorly in maths and treat it as a double subject.

**** you.
that seems a bit uncalled for.

---

aside from that OP. GCSEs are like this. don't sweat it. I know that teachers pressure you do well and say it's so important blah blah. but take from me, a qualified teacher (who decided working as teacher was not for them), that teachers only put so much pressure on you because it's their job on the line if you don't get high results. and the school gets *******ed off OFSTED if teachers don't make students get high GCSEs and the headteacher will ******* the teachers if the schools rankings drop.

the real truth is, unless you are applying for Oxford or Cambridge or Medicine or something ultra competive and you are top 5% of the students, your GCSEs don't really matter beyond getting a basic 5 A* to C, or whatever it's called now. because a lot of employers ask for a C in Eng/Maths, it should be 4 for the Poundland pass and 5 for the Waitrose pass.

if you were carrying on subjects to A-Level, for example, then you should aim to do well in those subjects IF they are STEM or music art or language. Some subjects at A-level are suitable for complete beginners with no previous GCSE background (eg English, History, Sport Science etc). Besides, there are completely new A levels or Btecs you can take at college that have *NOTHING* to do with your GCSE subjects.

so my honest advice is, you seem to be doing alright. you don't need any more effort beyond shoring up your Maths. Maybe for A-Levels, but by then you'll know what grades you need depending where you were accepted, but that's another discussion in 2 years time.

chil bruh. you can tell your teacher that an ex-teacher told you this. they won't deny it it's true.
