I’m in year 11 and I have my mocks, not the week coming but the week after on around 3/4 of paper 2 for most subjects (but all papers in maths). I take history, geography, GCSE PE and triple science. What would you say is your best revision tip to cram it all in and do well

Thanks in advance

I use CGP books, Quizlet, mind maps, BBC Bitesize and practice papers. Your routine everyday after school should be go through a topic by reading the CGP books to help, if not BBC Bitesize and for maths use Mathswatch (if your school have it, they have brilliant videos if you don't understand something and practice questions too) and close the book and create a mind map of all the things you can remember without looking back and then add what you didn't remember in a different colour. Create Quizlets (on more general topics so for maths don't do a whole Quizlet on Simultaneous Equations for example, do one on key things to remember for equations and make a question on Simultaneous Equations) then move on to your next subject and repeat. So read about subject, mind map what you remembered and what you didn't then create a Quizlet to do when going to school , etc., the next day see what you remembered by writing another mind map and then check to see what you didn't remember and do a practice test (there's loads of websites you can find practice tests on). Carry on with your next subject and then the next week see what you remembered by making another mind map and what you didn't remember make a new Quizlet or/and add to the mind map what you didn't remember and repeat that for all your subjects. I hope that helps in some way and good luck in your mocks you'll do great and be confident especially if you do this revision I understand you don't have long but even just use this method for the actual GCSEs it's worked for me and I went from a grade 6 in science to a grade 8!

Wow thank you! Normally I use flash cards but I’ll try with mindmaps and going back over topics the next day because I tend to leave them after looking at them once lol. Thank you
