I've got my first GCSE exams next week too...Because my Science ones are first, I thought i'd star revising for them, first. My teacher told me about this good website where you can make mindmaps. Making mindmaps and diagrams helps me to revise a lot so this is the website: After you've made your mindmap, you can either save it and keep it or print it straight off.

and last minute tips...just keep reading through ur revision book and notes over and over and over again :D

you should eat cereal, like museli or porridge or something because its brain food and then also have a banana because bananas are foods that make you happy, well not happy, but positive so when you get in the exam you're not going to put yourself down :)

Good luck to all you people with exams! :) and Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch don't worry the first ones aren't too bad (it's when you get to year 11 that the massive amounts of stress begin!)

Listen to the music and imagine that after you take all your exams you can visit the places in the video

Don't Panic the night before, if anything don't do much revisions the night before.

Last minute revision can have the counter-effect of what you expect- it can be really detrimental for some people. My advice, have early nights leading up to the exam and a really good breakfast on the morning of the exam. Don't cram revision in, just do a few practice questions here and there etc and a brief summary of the subject syllabus. Also I take 'bach remedy' which is said to sooth and calm during stressful periods - some university people and A-level students swear by it. Try it- might work!

Before the exam have a lie down. This should be done in a bath. Preferaby full of either jelly or beans. Either one will give you energy for your impending doom. Get out of the bath. Go into your exam. You will be naked. It will probably scare everyone else away. Even the teacher. So you can cheat. You're welcome.

the night before just relax because anything you dont know by then you wont learn the night before. chill out and on the day have a good bre4akfast and a drink and take a bottle of water in to the exam withyou. hope it helps :P

Don't take water. Everybody takes water. You are not going to get dehydrated during your exam. You wouldn't have drunk it normally. It's a distraction. You end up taking a sip everyfew minutes and counting the seconds until you think you can have another sip without looking too thirsty. Don't give in to it!

i agree
