Hi guys! I'm from the uk and I've just gone into my final year of school (year 11). To those who aren't from the uk, this means I have my gcse's this year which and an important set of exams and without passing them, I wont get into college or be able to get any job. So here are some tips that I have picked up over the past few years which I live by when revising and which I have used to get good grades in my mock exams:

-Use tassomai! You can find it online or download it on the app store. It quizzes you and asks you the same questions multiple times until it sticks, i'd recommend doing 4 daily goals per week, it only takes 10 minutes a day, I do mine on the bus on my way home.

-Freesciencelessons! This is a YouTube channel which goes through everything you need to learn for biology, physics and chemistry paper one and two and teaches you how to carry out all the required practicals.

-Mr Bruff! Mr Bruff is an English professor who has a YouTubs channel that analyses all the texts and poems you need to learn for gcse language and literature,

-For maths, you can use websites which have practice questions so you can quiz yourself, some of the ones I have used are mymaths, mathswatch and hegarty maths (maths watch is my favourite).

-Corbett maths- This is a YouTube channel which is owned by a maths teacher, he explains how to answer questions in depth and detail.

-I do French but all these websites do other languages too- kerboodle, linguoscope and this is language.

General revision tips for any subject:
-Flashcards- Either write out flashcards of use animated ones, you can use quizlet to make your own set of cards online.

-Post it notes- Write out formulas or equations you need to learn on post it notes and stick them around the house in places you go often to like on the fridge, on the door etc. This will make you look at them and remember them.

-Revision guides- You can get revision guides which are specific to the exam board you're taking for example, my school does aqa or you can use the CPG ones which cater to every exam board.

-Take notes- Taking notes actually makes the lesson seem like it goes faster also its better than feeing board. Try to write neat and use different coloured pens and use highlighters as if you're notes are messy, you wont want to look at them and it will be harder and you don't want to end up having to write everything up again when you come to revise.

-Read over notes- Every night when you come home, spend 5 minutes reading over the work you have done that day as reviewing information makes you 80% more likely to remember it and retain that knowledge.

-Tutors- If you're really struggling, ask your parents if they can get you a tutor, I have one for maths. If for whatever reason you're unable to get a tutor, either ask a student who's in a higher set to help or go to afterschool revision clubs and ask the teacher to go over the things you didn't understand.

-Relax- Don't spend all your time worrying about your exams because if you're stressed, it's likely that you're not going to do as well as you could have. Get 9 hours of sleep a night, spend time with your friends, family and people you love, do something you enjoy like a hobby and take care of yourself.
