Should I start revising for my GCSE's in January?

Well, I was thinking… should I start revising in January for my GCSE’s in May, June, and July? I mean… sure it’s going to be hard to stay motivated when there is so much time… but it’ll be worth it, right? At the moment I am doing my mocks… and I am doing okay, but for my real ones I want to be MUCH more prepared. I haven’t had much time to revise, as I have been getting so much coursework and homework. But, as long as I do good in my real GCSE’s, that’s all that matters isn’t it? So do you think it would be worth starting revising in January? Just like an hour a day or something, or an hour every other day, and build it up as it gets closer to the exams? What do you think?

Answer #1

You should start studying as soon as possible. Do just a little bit a few nights a week and it will help so much in the long run. GCSEs aren’t as hard as people make them out to be, but they still require a lot of study and effort on your part. What I found helped me, was I chose a subject at a time, gathered all of my notes and papers on that subject, brought a little book from a cheap shop and re-wrote my notes nicely and in the order I wanted. While I was writing, I was learning and honestly, those books saved me! They were just the notes I needed, diagrams, graphs etc etc. No random class-work or anything that I didn’t need to read. I did this for most of my subjects, I highly recommend it.

Answer #2

Thank you! That way has seemed to work for me too in the past. Haha, but for some reason, with science, the only way I can remember it is if I memorise it word for word! I think I’m gunna have to invest in some textbooks…. ;D
