    Start now, before it is too late. Make the most of these 9 days! I have 11 days till my first exam, probably not done enough/nowhere near finishing revision for the history course BUT it is better to start now, then the night before the exam! Don't panic though!!!

    Get revising! Do you already understand the content as you covered it in class? If you did it'll be much easier as you'll just be revising rather than learning.

    Also, Biology and Chemistry have a huge amount of content. Just learn concepts and do practice questions.
    The end of topic questions at the end of each chapter in the CGP revision guide are pretty good!
    For Maths, MyMaths is great. Learn the topics and attempt as many pastpapers as possible!
    Goodluck

    It's going to be hard, but doable! You need to prioritise your first exams, but don't completely neglect those later on. You're not going to have the time to memorise every little detail, and for chemistry I think it's much more important to fully understand the concepts as it's mostly all about application anyway. Just try to grasp the content for biology, then do as many past papers as possible! For maths, I'm assuming you can already do most of the different things that are going to be on the paper? If not, make key notes, and go through everything to make sure you understand it, then again, do as many past papers as possible.

    Good luck! How come you haven't started before now if you don't mind me asking?

    Start revising now and get as much done as you can!
    I know you're freaking out at the moment but just try and keep calm and get organised. Maybe decide/plan what you're going to revise and how long for and then just get cracking :yy:

    Good Luck
