    Do you spend equal time on all subjects, or have priorities?
    Personally, I spend most of my revision on further maths due to my uni offer


    glad i didnt take chemistry!

    I completely neglect Physics.

    Mind you, that isn't because I'm good at it/find it easy, it's actually the opposite reason :sadnod:

    Definately! I've done very little geography revision (just hoping i get some good questions), fairly little maths and then mostly biology and chemistry - too many facts!!

    I spend very very little time on biology & english. Most of my revision times is spent on chemistry. I spend 5 times more time on chemistry.

    I'm trying not to revise Biology as much as Chemistry because I need to get a high B/A in the final paper to get a B overall in Chemistry, while I only need to get a C in the Biology paper to get an A overall.
    It's hard though, since I much prefer Biology so I find revising it more enjoyable. xD

    At GCSE, I deliberately avoided revising German and English (and ICT, but only because the exam was cmmon-sensical). At AS though, I am concentrating on all equally (except general studies).

    I tend to neglect subjects I find hard.. Completely counter intuitive but I lose all my motivation when I'm finding my other subjects relatively easy :s

    However, towards exam time (ie now) I tend to spend my time more equally

    I don't revise english language as much as I should as I'm always writing essays or staying up half the night revising biology.

    I'm not going to bother including general studies even though it is the A I am hoping to get for my ABB offer for Nottingham.

    Let me put it this way. I've only just come to realise that chemistry isn't my only subject.

    I put a lot more time into Chemistry and Biology, I prioritise what I think is most important and where I need the most work

    In trend of revision lately:

    Biology > Physics > Chemistry > Philosophy and Ethics

    I'm utter crap at biology.
    Physics is my favourite subject.
    Chemistry is fine.
    Philosophy and Ethics I just can't be asked.

    I have not neglected any of my subjects, but I have been spending more time on History as I feel more confident in the other two.

    I feel as if I need to dedicate most of my revision "blocks" to Literature but I end up doing very little due to the fact that its so difficult to have focused revision in that subject.

    That'd be rather a waste of time.

    Only revise something if you think you actually need to. When I took my A-levels, the only subject I did revision for was Law as it's a subject that actually requires you to recite dozens of specific cases.

    Everything else was very easy to memorise.
