You can find many different revision methods depending on how you learn. One thing I would absolutely recommend is BBC bitesize, I used it at GCSE and found it very good. For sciences, MyGCSEscience was a website full of exam board specific videos, it is a paid subscription but I found it very useful and it got me through my three GCSE sciences! Mocks as well, don’t worry too much about how you do in them. They are an opportunity to make any mistakes and learn from them, they are a way of revision effectively. You will be fine! I hope this helps and I wish you luck with your GCSEs! 😊👍

Start to revise now but don’t overload yourself, an hour a day is plenty.

Try out different revision techniques and see which one fits you. Some people find blurting out notes onto a mind map is useful for them but completely different compared to someone else’s revision style.

Are you a visual, auditory, or kinaesthetic learner? (Have a look at the link below if you’re interested)

It might be worth creating a revision timetable to try stay on track with your studies. You don’t have to religiously follow it, after all it’s just a guide to keep you going.

What subjects are you doing for your GCSEs?

i too am in the same positions, i've started making revision materials so that i dont have to panic as much near exam season. i recommend u do the same. also seneca is an amazing website. flashcards and small notes are best to revise from as well as mind maps, but only when u understand the general topic. dont just revise something you dont understand or it wont be retained.
