Hello!
Personally, I would advise you to start revising as soon as possible especially by making your own resources and flashcards etc... As I found year 11 in itself to be quite revision based.
Then there is timetabling your day, don't be too strict to begin with and make it manageable. I found that Adapt App really helped as it let me block out time that I needed for other things and, if I had a change of plans would reschedule the module for me.
When it comes down to resources, I found past papers really helpful even in they were the older ones as the questions cover similar knowledge and layouts.
I hope this has helped somewhat,
I wish you all the best for the coming year.

Hey, we are in the same position and I have started revising work from last year as we haven't started school, but I think you should start revising now so that everything doesn't build up... some of our subjects are similar so maybe we could revise together?

I did 2 subjects a day, 1 hour per subject. Make sure the subjects are different so you don’t get muddled up. For example don’t do English Lit and English Language on the same day.

A little bit along the way makes a huge difference. I made my revision timetable, so that it started in January, that way I can cover each topic without cramming them all close together and leave time for exam paper practice.
I used a range of mindmaps, flashcards and just writing everything I knew about a topic on my mirrror.

i started at feb/march but ive been ontop of math/eng/sci throughout the whole of yr 11, id say around nov/dec. also i never used a revison timetable or made notes for one subject. im really not smart i just studied hard without doing the conventional techniques. really depends on your preferences. everyone around me did what the teachers suggested and what was expected for revison but i did my own thing. so dont stress out too much on whats expected from you with revison. im here now going to study mathematics at UCL this year.

Hey I’m in year 12 going into year 13
This is very cliche but honestly start now. What I did was.

September to November= my hardest subjects

December to feb= my easiest subjects

March to may= weekly focus on topics I struggle on (any subjects) I mixed them all (weekly)

Extra time I just recapped
Always recap your work even if it was months ago and still revise for an exam the night before an exam.

PLEASE DONT LEAVE ANYTHING LAST MINUTE💖
