    well i've been in the 'denial' phase of revision for a while: i go and sit down, open all my books and think 'aaah i know all this, it'l be ok' then turn on the T.V and pointlessly watch come dine with me or something - procrastination at its highest!

    but after a few lovely surprise mock exams in college last week i can now say the 'panic' phase of revision is well and truly underway. aaaaah A2 exams are SO HARD

    i was thinking of bunking off school for this next week, but the problem with that is im probably the laziest guy youll ever have the pleasure of meeting, and ill end up getting out of bed at like half 2. plus i cant cos itll end up affecting my attendance.

    and yeah but it takes me a bit of time to cover say one chapter cos i have to write it down and understand and stuff if you get me, :confused: whats your method of doing it?

    ive had to let go of any hope of getting a c or above in english lit so im leaving that and focusing on these 3 instead, thanks man, best of luck to you aswell!
    I just sit on my sofa and memorise the entire textbook. Takes time though, but it's worth it in the end. Good luck mate You can do it.

    Any particular reason for why I was negged? Because I advised him to spend more time on revision? You people seriously need to think twice before you do something. Facepalm all the way.

    I'm doing my A2s and I'm pretty sure what I've done so far doesn't really count as revision! It's bad I know, but I start off every morning thinking "Yes, I am going to revise so much today" but hours later, I'll realise that I've done absolutely nothing.

    You know those mental blocks your mind places in front of you? Well how about this , just drive through them.

    Best advice I've ever gotten from my teacher is, just get on with it.

    Yeah I haven't started properly either, I've got 6 days till my first exam (Chemistry) which I'm fairly competent at and I'm into Uni too, so I'm not too worried about my exams this year.

    Procrastination is just like masturbation, it feels amazing while you're doing it, but after you realise you're just ****ing yourself.

    solid progressive revision is sooo stressful. I did this last year and still had to cram a little bit for my last exam as they were so close together. they are even closer this time.
