    Got 6 exams in January:

    Maths C1 and C2 retakes which I have done alot of revision for already, will do a few more past papers after christmas.
    History (German) Retake - havent done much revision for it so far, so a fair bit will be needed
    Mechanics - 0 revision so far :/ Gonna need to ALOT. Will start next week.
    Geography Retake - 50/50 on whether to revise for this or not as I got an A on the original exam, I only retook it so my Geography teacher would predict me an A on UCAS.
    Geography A2 Exam - Done quite a bit of revision, but its not until 1st Feb so plenty of time fore this one.

    Actually, having written all that out, I'm feeling a bit more confident.

    How much am I planning? A lot more than I'll do.
    And for maths - i like to do a past paper in the morning, say mechanics one day, then C3 the next, then mechanics again, etc. It really works!

    I've nearly finished about half of the revision for the exams, so I will study but not that intensively. This is primarily a break.

    I'm planning on doing some intensive studying from Monday onwards - including studying through Christmas day (well I'm Muslim so I don't celebrate it anyway.)
    But anyways, what are you guys planning to do and how are you planning to do it? (Eg putting your social life on hold?)

    (Btw, this only refers to those of you who have A level exams in January).
    Muslims believe in jesus so I find it strange that you don't celebrate it.

    Christmas isn't a Christian holiday anyway, it's pagan.

    Oh, and OP's economics teacher is awesome.

    Quite a bit for me, especially for Biology. Going through past papers and revision notes a few times and also starting on C1 papers properly so that's 3 exams revised for as well as a 3 chapters of M1.

      Four hours a day minimum. I'm not going to say anything ridiculous like 7+ because I know I wouldn't do it.
