Hi Everyone. I know this is stupid. but I haven't done any revision for my subjects and GCSE Exams. and is it possible to start revising from now to May/June? and achieve good grades. I'm so scared and worried. and I need revision techniques. and I don't know what units I need to start for any subject. so is it best to start from the beginning of the book/revision guide or find topics you find hard and revise from there? Thanks for your help!

Also, it would be very helpful if you know what are some good revision websites for
English Literature, English Language, Maths, Science, Geography, RE, Spanish.

Lol same position as you. Honestly i don't think ill start revising until late march and i believe if you start revising now is more than enough (ngl starting in December seems like it'll make me forget more things that i have learnt). Honestly as long as you understand what you learnt in class doing practice papers is enough to help you with ur revision. And if you dont know where to start work on practice questions you got wrong. For English id recommend writing up small essays or power points its just a more memorable way to revise.

First of all don’t worry
GCSEs aren’t that important and once u get to A Level people forget they exist (unless you’re applying to Oxbridge in which case they are very important)
I didn’t start my revision until April and even then I wasn’t revising that much and I still managed to get 5 A* 4 A and 1 B
My revision techniques were not very good but I used to go through the textbook and make notes and then never read them again but it worked for me i guess
Start with the topics you find the hardest. There’s no point working on the easy topics because it’s most likely that they won’t even come up. BUT make sure you understand the basics of each subject first
Do practice papers!! They’re the best to help you achieve the top grades because with subjects like science and maths the questions are always on the same topics
Good luck 😇

you're good. i haven't started revising yet either. i did some of my exams in year 10 and revised 2 weeks before my exams and got a*/a in all my exams except physics and welsh. as long as you revise a lot from now on you should get good grades, but it doesn't work for everyone. find out what revision technique is best for YOU and stick to it. maybe create a revision timetable to sort things out. good luck with your exams.

Personally, this may seem weird but I like leaving my revision in march because, it makes me doubt that there is not enough time and I tend to work more harder and I put insane amount of hours e.g. I could just sit down for 4 hours revision straight and won't be tired and sometimes I even get up early in the morning to put in some revision. It's not too late. And all those people that started early in september/december might forget the information. This technique worked for me because in two gcse's last year I got two 9s' they were english lit, and R.E

Goodluck by the way

For English lit I used Stacey Reay because in english you would earn more mocks for different ideas because more candidates would come up with the same idea as most people use Mr bruff. And for R.E all I did was revise from the textbook and practice so many questions everyday I gave all my questions to my teacher, and just keep practicing. So when you walk into the exam it would feel normal to you

Oops forgot to add this * Don't use too many resources* It would confuse you only stick to your school ones

I did RE last year aswell, I achieved 4 marks off of 100% and only revised for about 2 hour's. However it was very effective revision. I went over only the few subtopicw I found difficult and a few of them came up on the exam and i know that if I didn't go over them I would have got an 8 not a 9. My advice is it doesn't matter how long u revise for as long as it is effective . Don't go over what you already confident in, especially when you have other subjects you can focus on. Go over what you are unsure of, do some practice questions and then move on. For GCSE's there is honestly no need to spend lots of time revising

Lol sad times! I recommend having a revision plan or timetable that fits in with your schedule. Also create revision cards you can revise with family and friends. You can find past papers on the internet and print them out to do them at home. Also do them in test conditions with a timer so the actual test doesn't seem as scary. I hope this helps and I hope you do well in your tests 🥂

I would start with the things that you don't remember and find difficult. if you have time definitely then go over the things that you did in Year 9 and have probably forgotten.
Some Revision Tips:
-don't spend too long on the title-- it may seem tempting but you will waste a lot of time
-use color-- it is proven that color, diagrams, underlining, capital letters and highlighting important things help

For English i would recommend using Mr Bruff on YouTube (i'm sorry i can't help with the other ones)
