    No I don't think it is at all. I've only finished revising one of my (larger) units in one of my subjects. I find starting too early means you don't retain what you have learnt.

    Im doing AS maths [C1,C2,S1], AS Chem [Unit 1,2,3a,3b] and AS bio [Unit 1,2,3+coursework]

    theres 24 hours in a day, and I really can't afford to waste any more time, so 12 hours with 30mins break every 2 hours sounds good to me

    From the moment I wake up to the moment I sleep

    Of course it's not too late. Just get organised and start ASAP. And don't kid yourself that you're going to do 27 hours per day, just aim for a good 4 hours/day and plough through the syllabus. It's only mid-April, which is not even cramming time yet, so the less panicking you do, the more actual work you'll get done.

    Not too late at all- I still have another module to be taught in soc. They moved the exams though, earlier this year than last. *******s.

    Anyway. I'm such a procrastinator. I really don't know how to got the grades last year [or any year actually, I've always crammed and hoped for the best]

    So yeah. If you haven't already, work out the best way for YOU to revise, be that writing or reading or listening, mind maps, flashcards, etc...and just knuckle down I guess.

    I should take my own advice :rolleyes:

    The thing is I get distracted so easily and end up doing nothing all day

    go somewhere else then. I do more work at college than at home. So I'll probably go into college on study leave.

    ive been making notes for the last few weeks. I havent started my revision "properly" but because i have been writing very detailed notes from about 6 textbooks i kinda have an idea of what to know for each exam

    i have 14 exams in June and im not getting too nervous. From when i start revision on Monday the 21st of April it will be 3 weeks and 3 days till my C1 & C2 exam. Notes are very helpful but you have to do them early and make them very concise. Then start revising a topic a week if you have like 3-4 topics a module. Make a revision plan and stick to it. Do past papers at the end of each revision session for a topic to budge ur memory. Im giving up alot of things from next week and one of them is TSR. Very sad

    It's never too late for revision, really. Every little helps? (gotta love tesco)

    I can't really give advice for not getting distracted easily, but I find going to the library helps alot. Even though I get distracted a bit there, carrying my books and stuff there is long, I still get more done then at home.

    I've not started revision yet...both today and yesterday I have sat around thinking about starting and not bothered...not good...

    I've got to do Core 4, Stats 1 and decision 1 for maths and 3 modules for As psychology...I've missed ****loads of stats and decision as well as psychology...so not sure if it's too late or not...should be cool though.

    But I'm going to give it ago anyway...Maths is the most important...psychology I just took up for something to do...

    The important thing is that you start right now(!!!) instead of planning a ridiculous schedule (12 hrs/day won't do any good, you will probably hit the limits of your daily capacity way before...) .
