    It's all about past papers. Do all of them and you'll be OK.

    I reckon if you panic then you won't be able to revise everything properly and be fully prepared for your exams, as long as you relax, work hard and plan your revision you should be fine, don't stress out if you think you are behind schedule it will only have a negative effective on your revision. A self fulfilling prophecy, if you will.

    Not late at all. It's right about now that you should start revision - I think almost everyone takes time to enjoy xmas with friends/family and then gets on with serious revision around new year.

    If you're actually revising rather than learning everything now because you weren't listening when it was first taught which is what I do, then you haven't left it too late.

    I do about 10 hours a day for around a week before the exam. Do loads of past papers and you should be fine.

    My first exam is on January 13th, and I have only just started properly revising, with 3 resits (2 in History, 1 in Biology) and 2 proper A2 exams (Biology and Psychology) I'm here to ask have I left revision too late?

    And do I stand a chance of revising enough to get the higher grades in these exams?

    Thanks
    You should start right away with a plan to what your doingwhen and stick toit its the only way im afraid good luck
