    I have 3 exams in History, Politics and Sociology dotted between the 10th-20th June. I'm currently on AAA, albeit they are close to the boundaries, and would need to get around 80 for History (I love), 77 for Politics and 74 for Sociology.

    When should I start? I'm so nervous about F-ing up! Now would be a silly time to start in my opinion, it's 3 months away and I only starting learning content for these units in January.

    You're doing GCSEs.. go away.


    OP, I'd start making all your revision notes now to save yourself time later.

    I did 6 weeks revision for 7 exams last summer, and 4 weeks of revision for 4 exams this January, and am now on AAA with 3 exams left, I think that's a good deal. I don't know how you're going to get through a degree with that amount of work at A-level...

    Yeah, I might start writing up revision cards over easter to learn the content, then with 6 weeks to go start nailing past papers and doing plans?

    GCSEs are nothing compared with AS, let alone A2s

    It's never too early to start believe me. Even if others say to you oh I won't be starting until Easter or oh I only started 2 eeks before, that's a smoke screen. Besides you won't regret it when com results day you opeen the envelop and you get te grades you want and need. So start as soon as you ca really and don't worry about what anyone else thinks.

    Degrees,often don't require revision because they are mainly dissertation.

    apparently now is when you need to start revising. Don't do what i will inevitably do, put it off till about 2 weeks before and be overwhelmed by just how much you have to do.

    Now would be a good time to start relaxed revision, rather than having it pile up and you stressing out nearer to the exam, good luck x

    FFS, revise when you want to revise. Just don't leave it at the last minute.

    Sorry, I was only asking for opinions! Last year for AS, I started around Easter, with exams in mid-may. However, everything is a month later this time round for A2, and unlike last year when I had 7, this year I have just three.
