I'm in yr10 so slightly younger but I revise for EOT every half term, and when I have to start revising for the proper public exams I'll have a list of notes that I've gathered in my previous revisions so it would be easier to revise.

I'm in yr10 so slightly younger but what I do is revise for EOTs every half term so when it gets to the proper public exams I'll have all the notes from my previous revisions to refer to and therefore make it easier to revise.

No time like the present; if you start earlier, you'll be a lot less stressed when your exams come around in May, that's all I can say. But don't go overboard, I'd say do between 1 and 2/3 hours a night and make sure to have time to do your hobbies. Seneca Learning really helped for my revision in Year 11!

i don't know how it goes for the sciences but for humanities i recommend taking notes starting jan or feb (that is if you have absolutely no real content notes on the subject already). i get really motivated after finishing exams or jan exams results day. Do one page a day, or 5 pages on one day and 0 the next. that way you finish the note taking process gradually. Then end of april work on your flashcards, memorising, exercises, timeline...these will reinforce your memory when doing mocks and anyway some of it went in your head the whole time you were taking notes.


however if you have no exams in jan to study for, you can just start now anyway. do revision when you're halfway - towards the end of the syllabus.
