    if you start now, you'll have loads of time to review everything in depth at least 5 times over. I made the mistake last year of putting it off till April and I didn't do as well as I had hoped I would. Plus, if you start early you'll be less likely to cram for the exam (well you wont need to but still)

    I'm starting this week god knows I need to aiming for 2 A's a B and a C at this point because of how poor I did in mocks (2 C's and 2 E's) I know I can raise my C's to A's with proper revision and hoping I can raise my E's to a B in maths and I would be happy with a C in physics at this point because I am 100% dropping it end of this year.
    P.S Doing Computing,Maths,Physics and Psychology for those that may ask,doing AS exams at the end of this year but all linear except Maths so don't count for next year but will effect predicted UCAS grade from what I understand.

    Never too late. (Unless it's a week before lol)

    Put the phone down and open your books
    You're right. I've left my first two to the last week, anybody look at my post next year, do not make the same mistake as me. Start revision (preferably) two months before. As tempting as procrastination is, it will be worth it.

    If you're like me and always start far too late. Do effective sessions of cramming, not entirely optimal obviously, but with a little bit of luck, you could easily get a decent grade.

    Yeah I prefer to revise and take my time rather than rush it. I'd want to do well and do it properly- not risk or jeprodise it.

    I hope things work out fine with you, you'd never know with a bit of luck and learning everything in the time you had, you might've got a good grade! I sure it'll be fine

    Good luck! X
