    I've looked over things for Chemistry and Physics, not hard revision or anything yet though. We haven't even finished C1 in maths yet so I can't revise!

    Slightly, cause we are starting to have mocks now, but for bio (SNAB) I think the only thing I have learnt in class since the year started is the kreb cycle...our teacher just has random convos with the class and we do absolutely nothing. So I have a lot of catching up to do there which I will start as of this weekend.

    Who the **** needs 2/3 months to revise? I'll probs start revising mid December, might start reading over my notes in a couple of days though.
    Tbh, the earlier you revise, the longer you have to completely memorise your notes.

    There's no shame in revising early. I'd much rather start revising in September, less stressful in January.

    You can only get them through your teacher atm, they should be able to get them from the teachers' area of the exam board's website. They don't release the paper for student access until much later (February I think) as some schools want to use them for mocks.

    I've started now (y'know as I will have been at school 1 out of 5 days this week and I feel lazy if I don't do any) It's strange because with my subjects I can do a few hours revision and feel like I'm getting somewhere however with biology I feel like i'm trying to walk through a glass door!
    We started the heart quite a while ago but we didn't really finish the topic before.. we just moved on >_< and including tomorrow , our class will have missed 9 hours of biology lessons since september which is like missing two weeks of it :/

    Had a Chemistry mock today, and I have completely finished my post-it bundle for the content.
    Takes a wait weight off my mind to do Biology and Maths, C3 is definitely a weak point for me.

    Do you have any that I'm doing:

    (A2) OCR "A" Biology F214 Communication, Homeostasis and Energy
    (A2) OCR "A" Physics G484 The Newtonian World

    I have the specimen and Jan 10 for each subject. Do you have any of the other papers?

    Personally I've made a start however I've only got 2 (non general studies) exams in Jan and they are the 24th and 26th (Bio and Chem A2). I've just started to properly revise the last few days as IMO 6-8 weeks prior to the exam is ample time if used effectively to cover everything thoroughly, any longer and you run the risk of getting fed up and stopping if you are revising properly. Realistically I'd say 1 month of good revision should be enough if again used properly - I seriously don't go with this "revision from day 1", I tried it last Jan and I just forgot most of what I did early on and feel it didn't really add much to my learning, in the summer I just revised a few weeks before and did just as well.
