Not revising earlier (i.e. in the easter holiday). My results were not bad but it could have been improved had I started earlier, especially history.

Me too - the teachers said to start revising since February but I didn't take them seriously. I still got pretty good results, but I would've probably got all 9-7 if I took things more seriously and knuckled down early enough. Religious Studies was my lowest grade even though I spent the most time revising it, but because I didn't care and may much attention throughout years 10 and 11 it came and bit me in the back.

Obviously haven’t got my results yet so I don’t know for sure but my work levels went too far down during exams (I was too relaxed) when I could’ve done with a light refresh before each one or like a practice paper however I did a lot of work during Easter and at the start of exams so hopefully that paid off

I regretted not paying enough attention to the mark schemes in my revision. Learning how to structure answers and knowing what the mark scheme wants is THE most useful thing after knowing the content imo.

Why have regrets, when you can simply choose not to have any regrets? Sounds stupid at first, but when you think about it, the past is the past and you can do nothing to change it. The only benefit is improving on what you've slipped up on in the past.

I have absolutely no regrets except trying too hard, missing out on sleep.
Sure, we all may have "things that we wish we could change" but let's grasp a hold of the hour and not contemplate about the past, just breathe in, breathe out and let go.

Also, if you’re like me and is unable to work well in holidays - go to a local library or try to at least do some work over the half term as I felt much less secure with the second half of my exams than my first

I regret the fact that I didn't revise at all.
I had good results, but they could have been much better if I actually revised.

Honestly the biggest advice I can give you is do your notes from September. Make sure everything you’ve learnt so far in year 10 you have notes on before you start year 11. Get a book and write down all the required practicals for biology chemistry and physics and you can find them on the aqa website. In year 11 make your notes as you go along and revise for all your mocks very seriously as if they are your real exams. Do as many past paper questions as possible. I was on the new spec but there were a lot of past paper questions on physicsandmathstutors and the mark schemes all for free.
Good luckkkk!!!
Revise and take this year seriously and you’ll find that the exams are much easier than you think.

Thank u so much for the advice!! It was really help also I don't really have any notes that I had written on what I did in year 10 I don't think English will be a problem but things like science and maths will be problems. I was really done with school in year 10 and became really unmotivated. I'm really unsure if I can gain my motivation back

I think by February the latest - if you start in April at least make sure you have all of your revision materials ready (notes, revision guides, workbooks, etc.). I only started making notes in April and I was making them until the last minute instead of doing plenty of practice questions.

I really struggled with motivation as well but if your aiming high keep that in mind. What worked for me was watching results day videos

I regret not finding out that I'm an auditory learner sooner. I was using flashcards for a whole year and wondered why nothing was going in.
I also regret not being prepared enough for prom. I missed out on photo opportunities with people I might not see again next year.

I'm dumb. :lol:

just finished sixth form but my regret was starting too early and not putting enough work in when it really mattered because I had kind of burnt out. only really reflected in my sciences.

I regret not taking more time to look after myself, scheduling breaks and actually putting time aside to do things I enjoy. Now I'm working on an apprenticeship I've realised how valuable that time was; no other commitments and freedom to pick and choose.
