Remember quality over quantity, you'll be fine

it's very good that you want to start early. You should start by reading and understanding your notes, and making revision notes from these. This includes definitions and equations.

oh and time wise, it doesn't really matter, you may find you need to focus on one subject more than another

I watched this youtube video by Ibz Mo and he said he used the rule of 8 to help him study and it has been working perfectly for me. Basically the rule of 8 is where you split your day into three sections where 8 hours are for sleeping, 8 hours is for studying(includes school) and the last 8 hours is for you to do whatever you want.

Using this strategy, you can create a revision timetable (look on youtube on how to create one if you are stuck) but make sure you give yourself a rest day! For example on Monday after school for x hours, you go over everything you learned that day/ do homework then after your tea you can do more in-depth revision into Spanish. During this in-depth revision for Spanish make sure you focus on one specific topic, for example making sure you know everything relevant to describe your town, this way you are actually revising and not looking through your whole book for an hour.

Don't stress too much about how much time you should spend on revising as you are only in year 10 plus the longer you revise should really be determined by how much you are struggling in that subject. I would say the most important thing to do at this stage is to go over everything you learned that day making sure you fully understand and that you revise on the correct information for any upcoming tests.

I hoped this helped, good luck!

Hi aashiiii!

I think you should focus on quality over quantity! Definitely make a list starting with the subjects you feel are harder/that you are struggling with then ending with the ones that you find easier. Then look at the specifications for the subjects from the exam board and pick out which topics you are struggling the most with from the subjects which you find harder. Start working on those and eventually make your way through the others. Trying to do a bit everyday is good but remember to take breaks!

Hope this helps.
