do a crap ton of past papers and look at markschemes as well, as they tell you how to actually answer a question

Often in GCSE they reuse old questions, as they do with A-Levels, changing a few key words. so just keep practing past papers especially older ones, they might not have the excat same specimen, but they do re use those types of questions.

I did nothing but cramming for the GCSEs I disliked, I didn't read the main set text for English literature until 2 weeks before my exam (we'd only read the key sections in class and I wasn't exactly one for doing voluntary reading homeworks, how would they know if I'd done it?). Most successful cram was probably biology, I literally just read the specification in the car on the way to the exam (it was very comprehensive).

Shows the power of having good teachers, they'd definitely made the knowledge go in without me noticing. On that note - would not recommend cramming to that degree. You've got plenty of time at this point to get your grades up, just make sure you use it! Saves a lot of panic.

Didn't ever revise for English language got a 7.The only way I revised for maths(8) and english literature (8)is by going to the revision session's at school and woke up 1 hour early before the english literature exam to read over some of the points for the different characters and poems,the day before my english literature exams did 0 revision.For my physics 2 and physics 3 exam revised (both on the same day) revised literally for like like 3 days and got an A*.Didn't revise for my biology(A*),chemistry(A*) and computer science (A*)GCSEs till after the Easter holidays and learnt most things the day before the exam.Never revised for religious studies,maybe like the day or 2 before and got an A* .GCSEs are a lot about memorisation,so you have plenty of time to revise.It's not too much about understanding compared to A-levels where you have to understand stuff and actually spend time going over it (which is why Im not doing so great currently because GCSE strategies don't work for A-level).So you'll be fine,but start as soon as possible so you won't be stressed.I also recommend freesciencelessons-got me an A*.

Yeah yeah, prospective Oxbridge student here. No seriously though, that's a nice set of results. Mine aren't nearly as good (they're on my profile)!
