I'm only doing about 3 hours of revision a week for Maths, Science, History, I.T, and Computing all together (Don't revise english because i'm confident enough to get a pass without revising much) and i was wondering if that would be enough from now to year 11 when i take my GCSE's. It's hard to revise properly when i have alot of things distracting me while home; the online work being set is crap and i've lost alot of motivation to revise more. Can i keep doing this and chill or do i need to hurry my ass up and revise more.

When are your gcse exams ? For mine I only started revising properly in the April holidays. Before that I was gradually doing all the last papers etc. Look at mark schemes. Use maths made easy. Or machemguy. Focus on sciences. Look at quotes for English. Make flash cards and stick them on your wall. But don’t revise too early on because you will just forget it all

It depends on how much youve revised and you in general. I only did revision that we were made to do in lesson and i did better than i expected. i knew i was going to pass everything even tho im stupid as hell but i ended up getting even higher. i got a 7 in math even tho i didnt revise literally at all. so it rlly just depend on you and how you retain info and your memory and stuff. i think u dont need to start revising at all until the start of year 11 so if i were u id just competely forget about school till then lol

I don't actually know when my exams are, corona messed up everything and my school still hasn't announced when they'll be taking place, but my guess will be whenever it usually starts, i still haven't done my Mocks aswell.

i don't really revise too often but i do alright in tests, enough to pass atleast and that's all i need. I'll take your advice and worry about revision in the future and not now, it's not like i enjoy revising anyway lol.

Your GCSEs will be held in June and July as normal - corona will have settled down by then, and even if it hasn't, they can't afford to let another year of students not do their exams (this year was an exception that almost certainly won't be repeated). Mock dates vary between schools, i would expect them around January though. In other words, you have plenty of time. Hope this helps.

No problem, just be sure to confirm when your mocks actually are as they may be before or after the Christmas holidays. Good luck in your exams anyway!
