I scraaaaaped the 9. My school gave me a pack with everything we need to know for the exam, every equation to learn etc and I went through it the night before, until like 4am loool

My advice is to do as many past papers as possible. The hardest past papers you can find, and note down the areas you find hardest. Then just focus on those areas.

Nah fam, GCSEs were my peak LOOOL

I was such a nerd but only for 2 months, I pretty much made revision my life from mid-April to mid-June, apart from the fact I seshed in my half term. You just gotta grind for 8 weeks and then you get a penggg 13 week holiday to chill

This was most definitely my peak.
Thing is, I worked ridiculously hard for my GCSEs that it scarred me bro, I even had to rearrange my room so that it doesn't feel like I'm sitting on that same GCSE desk.
Year 12 has been awful, I miss the structure, the easiness of the GCSEs, there's no spec to revise off of (I'm doing English, French and Art) and everything feels subjective. But I'm putting less pressure on myself now so that come Year 13 I won't be burned out. My UCAS grade exams are around the corner and I've only just started revising, which is a bit silly but I'm not alone - most of the people at my school feel the same way.
If you're in Year 11, know that Year 12 isn't just Year 11 plus or Year 11 without uniform. It's completely different, it's impossible to get spoonfed by quizlets

It depends on the subject!
You can defo revise science the day before and still do well, granted you revise everything and do past papers too. A lot of my science revision was just me flipping through flashcards the day before, doing past papers, learning what I got wrong, then going through the flashcards again the morning of my exam.
I also revised French the day before, which honestly was barely any revision, it was just going through grammar.
For subjects like History, RS, Geo and English, i.e. essay subjects, I would try to revise a few days before if you haven't done so already. You can't learn that much content in one night.

I did all my revision in tables.
Each table was a theme, and my columns from left to right were:
Point (a short statement deriving from the theme), Evidence (a quote), Technique (literary device), Analysis (what the quote means), and Link (linking back to the theme/potential question)
This is called PETAL, it's how I structure my paragraphs and how I therefore structured my revision.
Learn quotes on quizlet. I would put a quote, for example, "Reader, I married him" on the back side and then a key word on the front, such as "married". I'd be prompted by the key word and then I'd type in the rest of the quote
