    This thread is making me feel awful! I need to start revising....
    How many exams have you got? Don't stress! Most of my friends haven't started yet, or even most of my year haha

    I made the mistake of starting too early with revision for the January exams and I paid the price haha, the ones I studied for the least I managed to get A's...

    I've got three exams, but they're big ones. For example essay ones. History, English Literature and Ethics. They require alot of memorisation.

    Your so lucky you got 1 exam! I reckon you should be able to ace history, I did at GCSE, it was my last exam and I had a whole week that I could dedicate to it, managed my time well and managed to get 100%
    I hope I will! I got 100% in my History GCSE too! :O historygeeks'r'us :thumbsup:

    Haha My A-level result was decent I got a B, only because the topic we did for January had no revision guides, the exam board wouldn't make any because it wasn't a popular course. But I'm happy with a B, dropping it at A2 as my uni does not require it, I need my other subjects more.

    Three exams are decent to have in the summer, most people have 6+, what do you have in mind on revision, how much work/hours are you planning to do?

    I have a huge organised list and revision timetable. But I recently discovered the Walking Dead. Therefore, I'm doing absolutely nothing.

    Do what you feel is best for you On the weekend, my Spanish friend is coming and I'm going with him for "support" since he's auditioning for the X factor hahahaha! Those are probably my only days off (and evenings!) What about you?

    I totally understand, but people with 6+ are either resitting or take exams which contain lots of modules. I had to put up with coursework!

    I never plan say, for example, how many hours to do a day. I usually make a tick list for what to do everyday. And I've for some reason not even managed that this year. Last year for AS I was top notch with all this. I reckon it's partly due to driving lessons and a new job I've got but still no excuse. PS- got my revision books infront of me but not starting making notes :/

    Well, I have 7 AS exams and 1 gcse re-take.
    There's a lot of continent to learn for my exams especially history and geography so I spend good 4/6 each day during holidays now. I'm trying not to go over the top

    I'm not setting hours, I'm doing it by topics/units. I don't want to have to stop halfway something just because I've done the hours.
    I finish when I finish :lol:

    The X factor oh wow haha My days off are the weekend, gives me something to look forward to when I'm revising, acts as a motivational factor to revise, (I have the evenings off too!) I also tend to get up early and start early so that I get my revision for the day finished at around 3 or 4 pm.
