If you are a year 11 student you will know that the GCSEs are getting closer and closer. With only 2 to 3 weeks left, many students are occupied revising for hours every day or even more. Many students are left at panic. This may be because of the stress of exams approaching, or the panic of no preperation or even a lack of self-confidence. Some of you may be wondering, 'What should I do in these last 2 to 3 weeks?' Well, I am here to speak about everything you need to know.

I am no study extraordinaire, that's for sure, but I do know that no matter the circumstance (whether it be a lack of revision or you are fully prepared), you should be revising and putting in as much effort as you can to acheive your maximum potential. For those who may have been inconsistent with their revision, just know that it is never too late and that you can still give a good shot at acheiving high grades and doing well. However, you need to work hard to do so.

Exam past papers, flashcards, practise questions and many more. These are just some of the ways you can revise. Although the most important one to do is past papers and questions; for those who get stressed during exams or can't perform under timed conditions, exam past papers are you best friend.If you don't know what a past paper is, its a past exam paper from previous GCSEs that you can access. Once you have learnt the content, practising how to apply your knowledge through exam questions in past papers is very beneficial. Timing yourself under exam conditions during past papers helps with simulating and getting used to real exams. There is so much more.

As a year 11 student myself, I understand a lot of you may be getting stressed and also confused. It is also important to keep yourself healthy. Getting a healthy amount of sleep during exams periods will pay dividents in keeping you focused during exams. Eating healthy is also a beneficial thing to do. Eating an apple or some sort of fruit will do just the trick. 

The GCSEs are inching closer and closer. We need to make sure to smash these exams. The satisfaction, peace and free time you will get is all worth it. Lets ace these exams together. 

Good luck everyone!
