    Hey guys,

    Next Tuesday I've got my first AS history exam (Germany and Russia 1881-1914), English lit (Larkin/Abse poems and Murmuring Judges) on Wednesday and Economics (Edexcel unit 1) on Friday.
    I'm staying home all weekend to revise but I've no idea how to cram successfully... any ideas?

    Danke

    If you set an alarm to go off every 40 mins, have a 10 min break and get some water, food or chill for a bit and go back to working, do it as many times as you want.
    How do you revise successfully? I have exams next week

    I did loads of mind maps and stuck them on the outside of my shower (tis glass) and around my bathroom/kitchen which seems to work. You gotta make sure you know it all though so I tend to teach it back to myself once I can remember it. See if it works tomorrow :')

    Just make sure you hide your phone ipod so that it doesnt distract you by keeping looking at it every 5 seconds. Work for an hour then have a 10 minute break, dont make your break too long otherwise you wont get back to it. You will revise a lot more when you know you have to do it then or you wont get it done! Yeah have loads of food and drink where your working so you dont keep having to get up! and do it an airy and well lit room so you dont fall asleep! ahahah. This is how i manage to do 7 hours of revision a day.

    No, I'm doing Italian :P

    Still, three out of four is pretty good. No one else in my school does the same subjects as me, I was convinced I was the odd one out.
