Year 11 is definitely way more stressful that Year 10 considering you’ll probably have two sets of mocks in November/ December and February/ March (unless your school does it differently). And teachers will keep reminding you that exams are in this many months or that many weeks which is nerve wracking when you get reminded constantly.
As long as you listen in class, ask questions and make revision materials throughout the year rather than cramming it all in a week it should be fine. Just plan out revision and breaks and it should make yr 11 easier for you.
But also remember to have fun because it is your last year of secondary so don’t ignore social times just for revision, have a balance

Honestly, year 11 isn’t as bad as people make it out to be. As long as you keep on top of all of the homework and revision set by your teachers, you’ll do fine. I started properly revising around February half term, but had been doing small amounts since October, so it didn’t feel like too much of a stress.
Enjoy yourself, spend time with your friends and family, and remember that you and your mental health is way more important than GCSEs. So many people in my year let it get to them, and I watched good friends go slowly downhill. If you’re struggling with literally anything, academic or not, talk to someone.
Good luck, you’ll surprise yourself with how quickly it goes btw!

You won’t fail as long as you keep revising. Try your best on your mocks in Nov/Dec to see where you need to focus revision on and then plan your time accordingly. I know it feels like you’re gonna fail but trust me when I say you won’t as long as you want to pass and get good grades. You still have 9 more months until next year May which is plenty of time to revise old content and learn new content.
