Revision during Year 10

Hello

I want to aim for 8s and 9s. I'm top set in everything and wondering when to start revision for my final exams in Year 11, or should I have already started?
Hi :smile: its never too early or late to start revising. I think that for year 11 its best to have all your revision materials ready to just read over rather than waste more time creating new ones.What I suggest is to revise whatever you have done in class that week to make sure you understand everything. On top of that , just create useful resources like flashcards or mind maps on topics so you can use them in year 11 without the pressure of making them. Do it now whilst you can take your time. Hope this helps x

Hey!! I'm currently a year 11 and I have a bunch of tests coming up and then I have mocks in November. My advice: yeah start!!
I have Romeo and Juliet revision, history revision and geography revision that I haven't got anything prepared for. I have flash cards for science but at this stage, I could have avoided all this stress. I mean, I revised heavily for my year 10, June mocks for science, got 9/8, but for english, maths and french... I only got 6s and 5s, because I didn't start revision in year 10!! So yeah, start!! <3

no just do your homework on time do some revision for end of topic tests by doing senecas and pastpapers and aim for grade 9s and then when it gets to around mayish start to look over ur notes and do more past papers for ur mocks in yr 10. hope this helped

My tip for u as a year 11 student is go home and write revision cards on everything you have learned in every lesson in that day even if it is a small note it will help :smile:

my computig teacher did not teach me one thing so I was left all alone in year 11, what I did was I bought a computing revision note passport with all the info and learnt that- i learned everything from it and it was so helpful- I got an A* (grade 9) in that subject- does anyone want the link to it?

Yeah i always think to myself about regretting to start revision earlier but it depends on how much you need to catch up to get the grade you want. I started in feb and its working out pretty decently although I revise for my main subjects more and only tend to leave a single day for other subjects like business and computer science

There isn't a specific time to start revising, likewise the quality of the revision matters more than the quantity.
Obviously, the best way to be ready for your exams is by preparing your revision materials and figuring out ways to revise that work for you - keep in mind you can revise differently for different subjects.
For science, always keep a short summary of notes, so you can remind yourself if you ever feel stuck, here are some good resources:

For maths, people say practice is key and it is, but you can't practice without knowing the technique of answering a question, but here are some resources that help:

PMT is one of the best resources (imo) out there, because they have so many subjects and they are AMAZING for english, they're really underrated so I recommend you check them out if you haven't already!
