    Over half way through notes on a Geog unit and going to revise 2 topics of history later

    Nothing... And I haven't done a single bit of work this whole Easter holiday. I'm in A2, I don't know why I've suddenly decided to give up. Send help.

    Did some spanish past papers and was meant to do english lit revision but I've kind of gone off track (aka been on tsr for the last hour).

    Was out for most of the day so haven't done as much as I could have normalerweise

    I did some philosophy epistemology revision this morning, and now I'm going over some irregular verbs in German (I've learnt 50 out of 100 that I've been trying to cover).

    I think I'll do more epistemology l8r this evening

    I've convincing myself that by answering a few M1/M2 threads that it counts as revision

    How is that going to help you revise? Like who's going to mark it? How do you mark it yourself and learn from your mistakes? I don't know how I'm going to revise for English because I feel its something teachers have to mark but what if they cant mark it?
    Literally the ONLY way to revise Lit is by doing essays. That way you learn all the important quotes and prepare for anything you could get asked in the exam. Once I've written the essay, I commit it to memory, so if anything similar to that comes up, then I'll be prepared.

    I get them marked by my teacher. However, I'm now at the point where I don't really need them to mark it. You only really need your teacher to mark your essays up to the point when you know how to write an A grade essay. After that, doing essays is just your way of creating the revision material.

    In other subjects, you memorise from a textbook.

    In Lit, you create the info in your essays. That is what you then memorise.

    I did two Core 4 Papers and a Physics Unit 1 paper, made flash cards for Stats probability because i can never remember the formulas, went over what I'd learnt about electricity annd im currently going over the whole compsci trying to get the crap to sink into my thick skull. Annnd now I'm going to go and practice: Binary Subtraction, Floating Point Binary, Core 1 paper, Core 2 Paper, Go over my mistakes in some past papers and do some other excel work real quick

    Bio - biological elements, mammal gaseous exchange system and plant diseases and plant defences

    Old bio past paper
    C1 past paper
    Half of m1 past paper

    To do : c2 past paper and history mind maps for like 3 hours

    If I finish b4 midnight I'll do some physics questions

    And sleep !
