    When I did AS last year, I started revising just before the Easter holidays (and did loads of revision in the Easter hols and in study leave). I did a bit of revision here and there from about February though :p:

    I might start my hardcore revision during Easter. But for now, I'm making sure my notes are up to date and I am recapping over what I learnt in class just to make sure I understand.

    but not anymore its better to start revising about a month before, you could do it earlier if you think your going to struggle.

    I think there is no need to revise now, just make sure everything is up to date (as in notes), and that you understand everything you're doing.

    I'm doing that with my Science subjects, But with Psychology and English it's just the homework's I'm completing and that;s about it. I find with those subjects I can revise about 4 weeks before the exam and do OK but the sciences require longer. I mean atm I hardly know anything for Psychology because I haven't been revising because the exam is in 3 months but when it gets nearer my head will be down for it seeing as I don't fully know everything, although as I said my notes are up to date so as long as you're doing that when revision comes it'll be a doddle. (optimism :tongue:)

    2 months before. The safest bet. Obviously nearer to the exam isn't going to get you a fail but if you start that far away from the exam there'll be less pressure the last few days running up to the exam, especialy if you've got other exams around the same time.

    I've been writing up revision notes as I go along, but I don't know when I'll actually start revising. I planned to start revising for the January exams a couple of months before but that never happened...

    Just go through mark schemes and examiners reports the night before the exam and you're guaranteed an A.

    Unfortunately, I think there's more truth in that than you might at first think.

    I can't work until I'm in a state of panic, so for me, it was May/June.

    I didn't even have my biology books until the day before the exams, but the state of panic enabled me to concentrate for 12 hours solid.

    Depends on what kind of person you are, really! Just make sure you understand it all, before it's too late to ask your teachers.
