    What did you get for your mocks? How many hours did u do a day
    Hey. Admittedly for my mocks, I didn't do that much - at least not as much as some people. I made notes for my geography and sciences and ensured that I read them every few days. For French I stuck hard translations on post-its and put them up in places around my house so I'd learn them.

    That was all really. For English, it's really hard to revise, and for maths I just looked over examples in my book. The best advise I'd give for mocks is to learn from them. You can see where you're weak and hence where you need to work.

    I did alright. But I definitely put more effort into my real exams

    And they aren't bad grades, and if that's what you can get with doing nothing, think what you'll get when you actually work for them! And if you need to, pm me with any questions, I'm happy to help.

    Mate what do you mean when you said oh if you havent started now you are screwed. Thats not true. Its not about how long you revise it is about what you get done. Say you do 3 hours today but get a lot covered then it does not matter whether you only do about 10 minutes of revision. The amount of time spent on revision does not mean anything. Guys i reccomend that you start 2 months before your exam. Starting early does not give any advantages nor disadvantages.
