    I'm doing AS's right now and plan to start my revision and quite a bit of learning from Monday onwards. That gives me 34 days until my first exam (all my exams are in the summer so a total of 8). I'm aiming for AAAD if that matters.

    Now I'm not stressed, although with all the threads on here it seems as if I'm starting very late.

    So my question is: When did you start revising in your AS year, and am I late in starting my work or not?

    Umm, not really properly by myself until 3-4 days before my biology exam but we were always sort of revising in class. I don't remember doing any in the Easter holidays.

    p.s. I don't recommend what I did...

    Don't bother about when other people started revising.


    I started late match but properly around this time last year.

    Last year I started early-mid april (comparatively a week ago or so). It's definitely not too late, but asking on here isn't going to help you whatsoever. So go get working - do your past papers etc and just get on with it.

    The worst thing to do is ask other people, make a plan and stick with it and you'll feel a lot better. My advice would be actually to avoid clicking on these threads made by the same people and just follow your plan. Everything will work out fine as long as you do that, so first thing to do is make that plan

    At the end of Easter holidays last year, so about 5 weeks before exams. Revised for about 3-4 hours on schooldays and then 5-6 hours at weekends and on study leave. Got 3 As and a B so was all good.
