if you have my outlook, no revision! that way you see what you're unsure on in the mock, and can revise AFTER it, for the real exam :)

don't we all ahve 11 subjects for GCSE, it is quite tight, you want to be revising the longest in the subjects you are unsure/weakest in, you should be looking at 2 hours a day for your worst and 1/2-1 hours in your strongest ones, it is quite hard to revise for all, but since they are mocks, they will tell you where you need to improve, stress for the real exams.

The earlier the better technically. Don't stress about the mocks but at least revise a bit so when you revise for your actual GCSE's it will be slightly easier and your memory will be able to recall.

Experiment and find the correct revision technique too. The technique I used was to wake up at 4am on the morning of the exam and last minute cram everything. Although I wouldn't recommend this for others, it worked best for me.

I came out with 2a's 6b's and 4c's which was enough to get me in college (where I am now).

Good luck!
