i’m also in year 10 and i have my mocks in 2 weeks!
this is the way i’ve revised for each subject:
all subjects: find exam specifications for each subject and read over what you have to know
maths: using an online checklist (GCSE maths edexcel for me) i highlighted what i could and couldn’t do. then i wrote notes on the things i was really unsure on. soon i will do some practise questions also on obscure bits.
english lit: posters!!!! make posters of plot summaries, characters, themes, context etc. also youtube videos on your studied texts are very useful.
english lang: look at model answers and practise writing some yourself, maybe even handing them in to your english teacher to mark for you if you’re very keen.
science: ‘FREE SCIENCE LESSONS’ ON YOUTUBE SAVED MY LIFE! they have all the required practicals, key ideas and equations you need to know. flashcards are useful for equations you have to know, and drawing things such as cell structure can help.
R.S: i haven’t done any RS tbh, but flashcards for quotes could be useful and mindmaps/posters for key ideas might help.

these are very in-depth ways of revising and are probably a bit over the top for y10 mocks but oh well.
could you possibly tell me what specialist subjects you’re doing?

also some apps/websites that are good for GCSEs
www.seneca.com
quizlet
tinycards

i really hope this helps 👍👍👍

don't overdo past papers. extreme repetition of the course material.

I’m in Y11, about to do my biology GCSE. To revise GCSEs (which would probably be the same/useful for year 10 end of years too?)

Paying:
Buy the revision guide - it costs about £5, it summaries everything on the course well and gives you all the information you need!

mygcsescience.com - this is a website that you have to pay for (you might be offered a discount through your school) - it’s fairly expensive but teaches you all sciences, with videos, quizzes and exam questions, and got me up from a level 4 in y10 end of years to a 7 in y11 mocks!

Free:
Freesciencelessons - this YouTube channel is super helpful, watch the videos of topics you’re stuck on to get some help!

Past Papers - you can usually find them online for free - exam practice is one of the most effective revision methods.

Quizlet - an app that lets you make virtual flashcards. Good for learning equations/ terms, and you can use the app any time.

Hope this helps! Good luck in your exams x
