    I have 14 exams coming up and not started revising!!! I am especially nervous for Spanish reading + listening and English language + literature and i KNOW for Spanish you need to revise a LOT of vocabulary to make sure of getting an A or an A*.

    Also, does anyone know how I could prepare for these exams?

    No, it's perfectly fine. I think I started revising for my GCSEs at the beginning of the Easter holidays and I came out with pretty decent grades.

    It's not necessarily bad that you haven't started revising yet... I haven't started revising for 22 exams yet because my school is still doing controlled assessments and ISAs but revision strategies depends on how you like to revise.

    I cram things in and do loads of past papers before hand so revising religiously from now won't do me much good, but revise whenever it suits you!

    The way to revise could include past papers, posters, notes, audio tapes.... And loads of other techniques! It all depends on you; how did you revise for your previous exams and which method was best fro you then? Just continue with this method then

    Weeelll.... not so much revising - more working towards. Like for my Spanish exams what i'm 'trying' (but failing) to do is learn/memorize lots of words and i'm also 'trying' to go over the days lesson several times but from the cgp revision guide.

    Nah it's fine. I'm guessing by the number of exams GCSEs? You can cram for GCSEs, I barely did any revision whatsoever and came out with pretty good results by most standards. But I guess it depends on your learning style, personally I don't find revision that useful. Either way I still think March is too early for proper hardcore revision. I have 8 very difficult exams in summer that will determine my place at university and I haven't started

    @ Dandaman9999 - Ummm... it was more luck for my other exams and i'm not prepared to do the same for the upcoming exams so i guess it's time for a little late experimenting. :/ Thanks for the advice though, i just can't STOP procrastinating!!! I've done all my ISA's and my PE PEP but have to do my Geography controlled assessment from scratch because i foolishly lost ALL my work!!! Also need to do one more Spanish speaking assessment and one more writing, i need to also need to finish off my business controlled assessment.
    AAAAAAHHHHH!!!! I've just been completely demotivated to do my work since i lost my geog work.

    In all honesty, if you're worried enough about them to ask on an internet forum whether or not you should revise, maybe you should take that cue and just begin to revise yourself.

    Personally, I didn't like SAMlearning, so I revised :

    Maths - Past papers
    Physics/Chem/Biology - Read my notes from the past two years, was quite organised, none of them were pressing exams
    History - Saw the future and revised Plains Indians, that came up, so I just got lucky really, and for my other History exam, just read my notes from the year again
    Graphics - Didn't revise, just practised drawing a couple of things
    English Lit/Lang - Didn't really do much, just wrote a couple of short description pieces and read Of Mice and Men, as well as a book of notes on it.
    Spanish - I was decently proficient, so didn't revise, just practised speaking to my spanish exchange friend

    To put some context behind that, 0 marks dropped in Maths, 7 lost in total between the sciences, A* history (didn't look at marks), Graphics A*, Lit/Lang. Just lol. Spanish, A*

    This was just my method, develop your own, and just get on with it!
