    Tbh, if I had revised for my GCSE's and/or finished coursework the summer before, I would have been wayyyy better off in the long run - but then, I went to the shizziest school ever. So, OP if you're school's standard of teaching is crap, I would do that, definitely. Most likely, your school is half decent, though. That said, it doesn't hurt to get coursework out of the way, no matter what school you go to.

    I started revising for my 2010 GCSEs ages ago.
    Too much time on my hands... and my Graphics teacher is ****.
    Thus I've decided to read through my revision guide.

    How can you revise for your GCSEs now when you haven't even learnt the material for them? I mean, feel free to go over what you did in year 10, but beware that you're going to run out of revision materials pretty quickly.

    Or, y'know, go outside.

    :indiff: Maybe I'm just losing the ability to understand English, but this kind of insinuates that you're already taking your GCSEs.
    Yeah you do GCSEs for two years..
    start doing them in year 10 and finish them in year 11
    OP is just going into year 11 so will be doing his/her gcses in 2010 and is already taking them..

    It's a little depressing to hear that people are considering revising for next year's GCSEs now, I must say.
    Not exactly revising but going over a few topics. I don't intend to learn the whole syllabus in six weeks for all my GCSEs. And I'm not starting my GCSEs , I'm half way through them :p:

    The only subject i needed to revise for was history, i didn't realise how much there actually was. since you don't study this, then there's nothing else that needs more than a couple of days revision prior to the exam.

    your profile says you find science pretty simple, why don't you try reading a book based on science.
    my favourites are
    'Why Don't Penguins' Feet Freeze?'
    and
    'Why Do Buses Come in Threes?'

    some light reading and your brain won't turn to mush over the holidays

    seriously dont revise yet its just stupid! the y10 summer hols is pretty much the last proper holiday you get! Why not do work experience or get a job. Or learn a language? Spanish is fairly straightforward (as far as languages go) and I wouldn't mind giving you a few pointers. I just cant bear the thought of you sat at home all summer revising for exams nearly a year away! Come on feb half term is starting early enough.... (i hope, tell you in 33 days )

    Wow. I barely knew my course by easter.

    If you start revising now, you'll have forgotten everything by June.

    Why not do something fun? And non-school related.

    Don't bother, when May/June approaches just cram as much as you can in the 2 weeks leading up to the exam and then the weeks of exams. Either that or space it out throughout Year 11, just enjoy Year 11 it goes soo fast.
