    It's varied, I planned to start my revision at the begin of the easter holidays, and do about 10 hours a day, but at the beginning I started by doing about 2-3 hours a day, and even through those hours I haven't really been getting much done, however this week, I've been getting more on tract I did about 10 hours today finally haha, it takes up most of my day and I do take breaks and swap a lot between subjects, but it's helpful and I want to get A's for the 3 exams I have

    How do you revise?

    Making notes and reading over them?
    Making notes. Learning quotes. Thinking about texts and the links between them. Considering themes, possible essay topics, potential questions.

    I'm revising pretty much the same things as you.

    For S1, get the alpha workbook...its really helpful and past paper after past paper I guess. S1 is such a dull unit!

    Thank you

    I've just refound examsolutions.net - a site by a chappy who uploads Maths videos on YouTube. I used him for my GCSEs but I've found his proper site now. It's helping so, so much. I've decided that if I can pull off an A in S1 I'll donate £15 - £20 for both C2 and S1!

    It's a pain though. Just sat down to watch some videos and I've pretty much grasped the whole binomial stuff nicely. He neatly categorised each video into each relevant spec. MEI seems not to be done everywhere but he just produces the same videos with all the relevant content within them and attributes them to the relevant specifications!

    I might sound a little like an advertising board but it's truly helped me over the past week - I suggest checking out a video or two.

    I try to do 3 hours of revision every day in four 45 minute sessions. It's much more easier to motivate myself to do that rather than a ridiculous amount of time. Remember: it's quality, not quantity.

    I can honestly say that revision has never worked for me.
    Plan on trying to revise about 2 weeks before the exams.
    I wish I knew how to do work this early, but my mind just refuses.

    After school roughly 3 hours and on weekend would from roughly 10.00 to 6/7 o clock.

    Has to be done. :sad: :grumble:
    I also make use of the few free period i have during the week. Though it's more about quantity rather then quality!

    I have around 3 hours of uni classes every day until I get study leave, but I actually spend 5+ hours out of the house because of commuting.

    Then, I try to study for 3-4 hours. I sometimes go to the library, but mainly to stock up on books, so I don't stay there for hours.
