I am now in year 11, it is quite far till the exams but it seems better to start at a steady pace with the revision at home, I see it helps understand stuff more in lesson. I just need help on best ways to revise.
Question: what grade did you get?

Question: how did you revises (what was the best way)

Question: when did you begin revising?

Question: tips when in the exam?

Thanks.

I revised the night before and got 3 9’s, 4 8’s and a 7 and 5. Would I recommend other people to copy that? Probably not, but the main thing is staying calm in the exam and taking your time to think stuff though (you have more than you think).

I revised literally by doing practise questions, and if I got one wrong I’d read up on it and do a load more on that topic.

When did I begin revising?: February
Tips in exam?: Sleep well the night before, arrive in the exam hall well before time and arrange yourself. Make sure you're familiar with all the question types.

Hasan167 - haha, I'd hardly call it revision. At that point it was like a couple hours over the weekend of just reading and highlighting textbooks. I only really picked it up around April.
