last minute yr 10 mock revision HELP!!

hey!
So I've got my yr 10 mocks starting next week, and for some subjects I havn't done ANY revision, which is stressing me out A LOT 😱 as I've been focusing on other subjects, which have taken me longer than I thought to revise. 😬
For some context, here's when my exams are.
Wed 17 - Geography & English Lang
Thur 18 - Physics
Fri 19 - Chemistry
Mon 22 - Maths
Tues 23 - Computer Science & Biology
Wed 24 - Food Tech
Thur 25 - English Lit
Fri 26 - RS

I havnt done any revision yet for any of the exams in the 2nd week apart from biology...
does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get it all done before the exam (keeping in mind that I have to revise for other subjects alongside too)??
thankss :smile:

don't stress too bad! it's only a mock ❤️ do what you are physically capable of, and just leave it to your next mock to get a better plan. don't stress, you're not even in y11 yet haha!

Don't worry you will be fine. its only a mock exam and even you are not in year 11 yet. I suggest you should start preparing for exams that are first like your first exams are geography and English language.

For geography I will suggest you to watch videos from "Geog Vlogs halls", this is very useful channel to study from, in my mock exams I didn't had time to revise much as well so for geography I just watched videos from this channel and managed to get a grade 6. You you also practice questions you will be able to get at least 7 or even 8.

For English language you should know: language devices, structural devices and what effect does these devices create. and also if you will do paper 1 then how to craft an effective story/description, if you will do paper 2 then how to craft an effective article, speech, letter...

For all sciences: watch videos from "freesciencelessons" then when you will understand all content then do practice questions or past papers and mark then look for which questions you got wrong and which topic they come from then watch video again on the topic that you struggle with then do more past papers.

Maths: in my first mock exams I managed to get grade 5 without much revision but in second time I got grade 6 and it was close to grade 7 with doing little bit of revision. You should go to website called "maths genie" it has all topics according to grade with practice questions. you can look for topics that you struggle with, watch videos and practice questions. after knowing most of the topics then do past papers. You should not straight away go to grade 8/9 topics because you must understand the foundation like grade (1 to 6) topics to be able to do those as you need knowledge from lower grades to apply to grade 8/9 topics. If you have less time, I would suggest learn as many new topics that you don't know or struggle with then practice as many questions as you can, this is the only best thing to do. For last minute revision before the exam for maths, I just watched videos on harder topics from "GCSE maths tutor".

Computer science: use the Yt channels called "mrs brown CS" and "Craig n Dave"

I hope this helps, I took a long time to write this so I hope you will get something from this and hopefully achieve good grades.

Good luck, don't worry. If you will worry, you will not be able to study, if you will not be able to study then you will not get good grades so the key to SUCCESS is to study hard without worrying just don't think about the time as you can never go back in time so use the time you have wisely.

I hope you will use my advice as I want you to do well. BEST OF LUCK
Thanks,

First of all, don't get too stressed. You're not even in year 11 yet, if you dont do great in these, its not the end of the world. Theres no point in stressing over this, you haven't even finished the course so the grade isn't going to have much meaning. Work out which exams are in the afternoon and morning so you can work revision at appropriate times. You have an entire weekend, you can do 2 subjects and cover a large span in those 2 days. Do maths, computer science and maybe food tech on the weekend and then english lit and RS you can just revise when you have time. For the subjects, identify which topics you hate or ur bad at and focus on them

just a quick question about english literature, but do you have any good ways of memorising quotes and stuff, bc I've tried to learn some in the past, but theres just too many 😭
(btw for my english lit mock, its inspector calls and power & conflict poetry (we've only done 8 poems so far))
also how much is a good amount to remember for each poem & inspector calls?
any suggestions..? (also if anyone else has any ideas feel free to let me know!) :smile:

I would suggest to remember at least two quotes for each poem. My teacher always say if you cannot remember quotes for any poems you can use their name as the quote. Watch videos from "Glow up your grades" - she explain every poem really well. try to memorise the structure of the poems and what happens int the poems as if you cannot remember the quotes you can always use their name as the quote and you can say the writer uses this structure to show.... etc.

I would suggest you to research the quotes that can match the theme as well as the character so you only have to memorise less quotes like 1 character + theme. for eg the quote "We are members of one body. We are responsible for each other." - character: Inspector goole, Theme: responsibility or you can also say Socialsim. this is useful because you have one quote for character + theme so you can use this quote for question about inspector or question about responsibility or question about socialism. I would say try to memorise at least 5-7 quotes or more. around 10 quotes are enough. Choose the quotes that you understand and will be able to write more about, and try to memorise short quotes as they are easier to remember.

I hope this helps! GOOD LUCK
