Thanks!!
my main pieces of advice:
1. don't spend all of your time reading textbooks, highlighting, making notes and other passive revision methods - i know a lot of students who did this and never really actually revised and learnt anything, so when they got bad results, they didn't know what had gone wrong when they had spent hours "revising" - just try to use active methods as much as you can when you want to revise
2. dont always measure your revision based on time. i feel like its common to be like "how many hours should i study?", try to measure it based off of what you actually get done!
3. don't overwork yourself! I think a lot of people sometimes overdo the gcse revision, so just be mindful to not overwork yourself and burn yourself out!
4. little and often is better than cramming!

Hi there,
I saw you were interested in GCSE notes. For a fraction of the price of textbooks, i recommend getting revision guides from the website below. they have been written by a grade 9 student so are really up-to-date with explanations and past paper questions.

visit:
bytesofintelligence dot co dot uk on google
go to their shop

hope that helps!

are there any things you wish you didn't do or did do that could have given you a higher grade or score on your actual tests?

Hi Dynamic echo,
Good question. I think you should always revise for any little test, and then make notes on any mistakes you made. Also, use the revision guides which I mentioned above - they contain past paper questions and answers, but specifically those questions which are really challenging - which will help you get the top grades.
Also, start reading the revision guides EARLY. Don't wait until halfway through Year 10 to start. If you get a headstart, you will feel much better. Hope that helps
