That's not true at all. Seems like a kind of pessimistic attitude there. You can revise now and do exam questions and pass. October seems way too early - it's probably best to start revising from February/March time. April would seem a bit late, unless the exam is in June.

Your teacher doesn't know what they're talking about.
Clearly if you didn't start revising in September, you might as well give up.

But seriously, now is a perfect time to start revising imo. I don't think your teacher could get a job as a motivational speaker.

Your teacher is a god damn fool!
It doesnt really matter when you start revising.
As long as you are passionate about revising and put a lot of hours into it.
Without a doubt you can get easily achieve a B or an A.

you revise in September the topics, when you come to your exams in late June, you could have forgotten the things you have revised for.

Your teacher shouldn't be scaring people like that. That's essentially saying to some people, "don't even bother trying you've already lost." Although they're probably trying to scare people into starting immediately - and likely spur people on to prove them wrong.

Absolute nonsense. It depends entirely on the individual- and some of the GCSEs are so easy that you could cram literally just the night or two before and do great.

Not a very encouraging or optimistic teacher. Most people wouldn't bother with a speech like that
I started revising end of march and came out with straight A's.

No. I got 9 and 8 in English two years ago — I only started revising in February.

It’s what works for you and how you think you’ll revise most effectively, the amount you’ve done doesn’t matter if it’s not effective revision.

It really depends on your intelligence, and whether you are very behind on the specification or not. For example, if you do not easily understand the information you’re being taught in lessons, then you should be very concerned if you only start revising at this time of the year.

Make sure you have understood almost everything in each subject if you really wish to have decent/high grades. However, that does not mean you should sit in your bedroom at your desk 24/7, reading off a textbook. Be reasonable with your time. Most importantly, when the exam season begins, you have to sustain a positive mindset, and self-confidence.

I know my set of advice is quite vague and obvious, but it’s important that you consider them. Once for all, I wish you the very best of luck, and achieve the desired grades that you’ve been hoping for. 😊

They're just trying to scare you. It's only too late when you're walking to the exam hall.

Obviously the more revision you manage to get in the better it will help you when it comes to exams, but it is never too late to boost your chances a little.
The one bit of revision I did in like the week before one of my exams really helped me. I did not have a good work ethic at all, but I did what I could get myself to do and it did help (I also didn't fail).

Not only are they wrong about it being too late it's also just pretty poor of them to be saying that now. There will be a while bunch of other students who have not been revising before now and they have basically said give up now there's no point in trying.

Everybody is different, has different things going on in their lives etc. Even if it's best to start revising x months before exams that just isn't a possibility for some people and you certainly can't go back and change that now anyway. Just do whatever you can. Every little helps and even if you aren't doing the perfect method according to your teacher you can still better your results.

I really hate when people try to motivate with scare tactics. My school had a countdown to exams right down to the second that they showed us every morning. All it did was make me feel pressured and totally unprepared. It didn't help me go back and revise and it didn't help me to bring myself to revise. Try not to get too stressed out by all of this. Yeah it's a pretty big deal, but it's also not the end of the world. Stress is not your friend so just chill out and do what you can. Don't get worked up about what you didn't or can't do.
