Dont waste you life revising in yr 7 for a exam which doesnt even go towards somthing. Go live a little im sure you will do fine with out revising. wait till you do GCSEs and A-Levels.

Well, It's not really the amount of time you revise for.

It's the quality of your revision. 

Aim to look at every subject each day, if not on alternating days. Practise on maths, and learn from CGP books for science; buy the question books and revision books and answer them, check them.

For history/ geography - its the case of memorising.

for languages, its just the case of writing senteces and paragraphs of each topic, and showing your lang teacher and asking them if their right.

Hope it helped

Allthough this is rather difficult for me to say (as it is very hypocritical of me) but start revising for the exams and get into really good habits because if you do that each year- you will get the good grades and reap the rewards. It'll be second nature for you to revise early for exams to get the good grades, especially at A-levels or uni. Starting late leaves you panicked and you won't do better. Get into practice but don't stress too much as they aren't life-changing per say.

As you are in year 7, I would say around half an hour to an hour per subject but aim more for the quality (as said by Jathurshika.Lalloo x). Time is only a small factor as if you revise for 5+ hours and remember none of it then it won't be of much use to you. Try various revision techniques that work for you. Also just as a future thing on ways to revise; don't just read or copy out notes as this is the worst way to revise according to psychology. Apply meanings to your notes e.g. draw pictures for key terms as this will really help. If you are more of a kinetic (moving) person perhaps do an interpretive dance or act something out. If you are more of a listening learner then use your phone/mp3 player/ computer to create audio files and listen to them as you sleep. Saying that, audio files while you sleep help generally regardless of what type of learner I find from a study in our As psychology class.

Hopes this helps and good luck with you studies. =)

It's not true that you shouldn't revise for your yr 7 tests, where you are now reflects very much on where you will be in your gcse, i really agree with fyzah and Jathurshika.Lalloo x do exactly that

Joshua Finch, you're so mean :3

Hey Ellie, you should revise around half an hour a day for each exam..... you're only in year 7 so your teachers probably wrote your exams and they're probably based on the work that you've done in lessons ((just read over your school notes and you'll be fine :D)).

Good luck ^_^

If you've never had a bad report I'm sure you'll do fine in them without any revision at all. Years 7 and 8 are the best years of your secondary/college education so please make the most of them rather than wasting your time worrying about end-of-years! If there are any subjects you know you struggle with then just try to look back on them and try out some questions until you feel more comfortable. Don't even think about GCSEs yet, you won't start on the GCSE syllabus til atleast year 9, if not 10.

Im in year 8 and I am near my end of year tests, 4 weeks prior I start revising, for the first 2 weeks its 30min a day, then two weeks before, up that a notch to 45min or maybe an hour, depending on whether your teacher has set it for homework.

I think you should spend some more time revising English seeing as you don't seem to know that "I" is written as a capital, not "i" and that year is spelled "year" not "yr". Anyway, best of luck with your revision.
