Hi, I’m looking some advice on how i should do some revision. It takes me normally quite a long time to revise things and cover everything and i normally don’t finish in time, so as no one really knows what’s happening with the kind of assessments GCSE students will take this year i think it’s a good time for me to start. I have a plan which includes half an hour of some subjects a night but i just do know what to do or how to do it. I feel like it’s too late and I know that i really don’t know a lot of the content so every time i sit down to do it i just get really stressed and start worrying more and more until i can’t face it and stop with out having actually done anything. The uncertainty of what’s on isn’t great and nor is my mental health i think so i’m really looking for some advice on what I should do now, i am also worried about my grades as they aren’t as good as they should be. So any advice or help would be much appreciated, thanks !

Don't make notes - its ineffective. Do revision in which your brain has to work to recall the information e.g. questions. Especially for GCSE, all I would recommend is tons of practice paper questions. If you insist on making notes, something I like to do I try and write everything I can remember about the topic without the textbook, then check it after to fill in anything miss - that way im not passively copying down things and am actively recalling it.

As they said, I wouldn't suggest making notes either, because it would take too long, and you wouldn't have time to actually use them properly. A really good website that helps me is Seneca. Just go through the main course of each subject, and if you want, you could make flashcards, or buy the CGP ones - they're quite good.
I hope this helps.

thank you both responses helped a lot. I agree with not making notes. I think maybe what i’ll do then is try and go through the courses on Seneca and then start in past paper questions. thank you
