How to revise for GCSEs in 3 weeks?

I barely did any revision during easter and I need to cram all the revision I should've done ages ago to a small period of 3 weeks.

I'm mostly struggling with maths and english lit (I've gotten a 4 for every single mock I've done for those)

Do small amount of revision for 1-2hours and also create a revision timetable(recommended)

I don’t do exams yet, so I’m not sure what you’re going through, but if I had to say something, I would do a few hours of revision daily and perhaps make a revision timetable. But, if you’re getting 4s in English lit and maths, that’s a pass, but if you would like a better grade, maybe prioritise them for revision. I wish you all the best in your GCSEs and hope you get the grades you want. 🤍

Hi there!

At least you have recognized this now and not too late!

I've sat exams pretty much every year for the last 8 years and I've found that if you are at school during the day, having a little bit of time off when you get in and then doing a few hours of really productive revision worked well for me. When it got close to exams, I tried to focus on past papers as this was a really high yield way for me to revise!

Best of luck in your exams 🙂

I hope this helps,
