    Correct

    The intercostal and diaphragm muscles relax. The rib cage moves downwards and inwards and the diaphragm becomes a curved shape. The volume of the thorax decreases and this in turn causes an increase air pressure, this forces the air out of the lungs.

    a) the sino-atrial node? [1 mark]
    b) the Purkyne tissue? [1 mark]
    a) Receives an electrical pulse which coordinates the pumping action of the heart
    b) Specialized tissue which runs down the heart downwards the apex and carries the electrical pulse from the SVN and AVN or something like that..

    Can't seem to get up early enough! I always say I'll get started at 8...then it's suddenly 10. Then I end up on wikipedia reading about some obscure disease...very strange.

    Also, for biology - I haven't been to ANY lessons this term so I need to learn ALL of the course before June 3rd. And, for chemistry, I literally only know half of it. And I haven't even started on my maths. Oh god. I'm going to be working through the night in May.

    Just wondering how many hours everyone is doing, I'm personally doing 4 as I have 4 exams coming up.
    I've always thought of this as a bad habit. Far better to study by progress made as opposed to hours done. You feel like you're actually getting somewhere and it curbs procrastination to some extent.

    I hope this helps.

    I'll naturally wake up about 6:00 am (school waking up timing is still instilled in me ( ) so I'll have a lie in 'til 7:00, have a shower, eat breakfast, all the usuals.. And then I make sure I'm ready to begin by 8:00. I have quite a high tolerance to revising for long periods but I make sure I always have 10-15 mins to make myself a cuppa, or grab something to eat etc. As soon as I think I've had enough, as if revision is nearing torture, I'll take a break. Have lunch at 12:00, continue revising all the way to 10:00, (having dinner at 7:00) and take an hour to fully relax and calm my brain down from the day, sleep at 11:00 on my best days Other days I'll sleep at 10:00

    You guys seem to be spending loads of time on revision! I'm working full time these holidays so my time has been limited but I also find I can't spend whole days revising I get distracted and end up getting less done. Instead I set myself targets of things I have done by the end of each week. That way I can fit it round work/ leisure and work effectively when I'm "in the zone". Lat night I managed to make y notes for a chemistry chapter in an hour. No distractions jst an intense hour. I learnt loads but it was an hour from my day. Starting early is the key for me to fit everything in. My revision works in four stages: make notes using spec : mind map most difficult areas from notes to reinforce: past papers : review difficulties found from pp. for me a couple of hours a day is far more effective then 6-8hr study sessions but it has taken me years to figure this out!

    I've been alternating between 7 to 8 hours a day,minus Saturdays in these two weeks holidays. I wake up at 7:00, and have 2 hour breaks after a 2 hour session of revision. Normally finishing revision around 8 or 9, depending how much I get into it. I have 3 exams and two of these exams iv'e just started revising for them.. (coz i literally have no class notes ). but its going good and ive just realised how much time is wasted in school because ive almost finished learning two subject units in a period of 1 week and a half and in school were still going over it - atleast now im ahead

    the night before personally wouldnt be a time to actually revise, but recap on the information. so i may do a past paper, or just read through my notes and maybe revise 1 or 2 more bits of information that would be useful.

    maybe an hour each on each subject? on the 13th i have 2 exams on the same day at the same time, so the night before ill be doing in the afternoon media practice then music practice in the evening as music comes first

    i have set targets like im going to revise this for so long and then move onto another subject. I try and get into a routine like that for every revision session.

    To have fully understood a chapter or module it takes me 2 to 3 hours morning and night for about two weeks or more before the exam.

    Don't let people and things distract you, I find that things like Facebook and twitter cause it plays havoc.

    Usually I revise between 3 hours and 6 hours every day. My exam is in 4 weeks or so.
    I'll try to work more from now on, you are all such hard worker and I feel a bit guilty for not putting in more time.

    Mine varies erratically, I do as much as I feel I'll be productive doing a day. If I'm not in a revision mood and I know I won't be productive I either try to do a little bit or just leave it. I find it's much better to leave when you're not in the mood and go and do some of the things you've been wanting to do but haven't had the time, then you'll come back to revision the next day ready to knuckle down and get lots done.
    But I guess it's different for everybody . Kudos to those of you who consistently do 6-8 hours every day! :cute:

    Dreadfully. The worst thing is that what I am revising is going in quite nicely, which should motivate me to revise more, but it just isn't...:sigh:
