    Maybe revision at school during my free periods, not at home.
    So, simply, you revised a lot throughout the year.

    That line gets blury when you do Maths + FM so most of your timetable is filled with maths lessons, to be fair.

    But even then, for someone doing a single subject, this is too early for revision. Any small revision for tests and mocks is sufficient enough, and a good start at around Easter time is fine.

    No, you're just very talented and part of a minority of people who got those kind of grades in 1 month.
    No, this is a bit ridiculous. Honestly! Heck, I've got my uni exams in about as much time as the OP has their AS ones, and I haven't even started my course yet. Most people haven't, yet some people are already starting to revise?! C'mon.

    Tbh it does depend on what subjects you are doing and how much you 'get' them.

    I have been revising since like the first day OP, its a good thing. Don't listen to those saying its too early, as long as you have a break its fine.

    Lol you are naturally talented, look at this


    so I put in zero effort into my IGCSE's, I slobbed around, didn't do any revision and spent half the exam doodling silly things onto spare paper and annoying invigilators.

    I was fairly surprised at receiving 7 A*'s and an A (in economics, somebody isn't going to be happy about that) and was ecstatic at being the only one to have scored an A* in Additional Maths in my school's history.

    Not everyone has a brain that absorbs information in class like a sponge , people like me who need to consolidate their revision will end up failing mocks if we leave revision to Easter :/
