hi, i started revising for my gcse's after feburary half term last year and it worked well as it allowed me to go over my subjects several times. as for how to revise it depends on what works for you, some people like making mind maps and posters and sticking them all over the walls, i prefer just reading a few pages of my text book and summarising those pages in bullet points, i did use mind maps for case studies in geography though. do past papers regulary at least once a week and when you get closer to your exam increase this. for maths most of my revision involved going over the thechniques and doing lots of practice questions and past papers.

I have already started revising and for some motivation, I'll be 12 when I sit my IGCSE'S in May. I revise 2/3 subjects daily, mainly by reading and making notes. I find mind maps quite helpful for revising Religious Studies, and generally read and make notes from the text book for the sciences. Past papers under exam conditions are a MUST, and when you've done enough, you'll see that they tend to follow some sort of pattern....For maths you have to do loads and loads of practice questions and exam papers, in the Maths IGCSE they also have Calculus and further trigonometry which is not in the Maths GCSE syllabus .

Also to keep info fresh in your mind, try to read over all that you have revised previously before you start revising new things.Just read over the old stuff once or twice then start revising the new topics....!!!!!
