Yes. Just revise everyday for at least 3 hours but make sure not to burn yourself out. Those hours will add up and help you boost your grades up significantly

Btw, what year are you in? I’m in year 10 and could really need someone to chat to.

So I kind of need some advice.
1. Should I revise in year 10?
2. Do year 10 mocks really matter? (I have them this month)
3. I want to talk biology and chemistry at a level so I can study zoology at uni. I am on combined higher and i am scared I will not get that grade 6 I need to take on a biology course at a level.
4. Does almost everyone start out bad in year 10 and get better grades in year 11?
If you could answer these as best you can with your experience it would be greatly appreciated. I am stressing myself out so much. Oh and one more question about stress: should I be stressing so much even though I’m in year 10?
Thanks!

hey again, so sorry for slow reply.
1. i would say it's a good idea, not all the time but revise for all of the small tests you have as it will all add up and help you later
2. not the results, but please act as if they do. don't get too stressed if u can avoid it but treat them seriously because it's really good practice
3. i believe the max u can get for foundation is a 5, so make sure you work really hard for science now and then talk to your teachers and ask a lot to do higher if u really want those grades.
4. everyone is different, but yes everyone improves lots from y10-11 if u mean that. u have the power and potential to completely change ur grades before gcse, don't waste it! teachers also help more and more as it goes along, tbh the potential is only yours and work is proportional to results so in stead of worrying just make sure you're on top of everything and you'll feel good
finally stress. it's normal to be stressed, but you really don't need to be. you have ages and i promise it'll be ok. don't sacrifice ur mental health for exams especially as u still have lots of time, you can revise now but don't overwork and prioritise your health over everything or you'll burn out.
good luck xx

Revise but give yourself breaks otherwise you'll not focus properly. And remember stressing is the worst thing you can ever do, so if you feel like you're getting to the point where you're gonna stress, then take a break, go for a walk, get fresh air. Trust me it helps a lot.
