    I don't set myself any kind of time goals I just set myself goals of where I should be at by the end of the week in order to complete my revision on time then once I've met the goal I can just do questions and that kind of thing to check what I've learnt

    I have 8 exams (2 are AS retakes), and I'm preparing by sleeping until 10:30 when I aimed to get up at 8 to start revision, making notes, panicking that I've forgotten everything, panicking that I won't achieve ABB for university, giving up, and watching Game of Thrones.

    But it's only the start of Easter, I'll probably get into a better routine in a few days. At least I hope so
    Sounds like what I'm doing, apart from I need to get A*AA... :eek:

    They do indeed as I don't really take much in from reading the information, at least this way I'm getting to the time constraints and the type of questions that could be asked. Also I have made a list really, it's just all in my head and I have a folder solely for Chemistry revision, it has about 50 past papers in and weighs a bloody tonne!! Can't wait to get through it all so I can never EVER do it again

    And thanks I'll probably need all the help I can get as I'm easily distracted and procrastinate a lot, like right now instead of doing the papers

    Yeah, definitely! Haha, I can imagine! ah same, I'm supposed to be making notes at the moment, I'm way too easily distracted!

    I have 9
    3 Maths, 3 Chemistry, 2 General Studies and 1 Biology.
    I don't plan to do anything for Gen Studies (who actually does?). I've not started biology much yet, I'm half way through one lot of chem resit revision, just finished the unit i'm on at school and still have one resit to look over. I haven't really started any maths but I have a lot planned for the next two weeks of holiday
    Somehow I need to work out how i'm paying for my 3 resits too.

    Not really, just the first thing that came to mind really, as sad as that sounds

    And statistics isn't the nicest of Maths in my eyes, quite boring really, I much prefer the pure and mechanics any day but that could change at university

    Yeah I should be doing a past paper although I'm on here, however I am doing some questions with someone else at the same time so I guess it's not a total waste and I don't really like making notes as I can never read my handwriting afterwards so it just seems pointless for me to do it in the first place

    I see well I'm sure you'll enjoy them as its meant to be very similar to physics even though I never took that and if you do FM then the core starts to get fun

    For M1 and M2 you should be fine with concepts as I haven't taken physics past GCSE as a joint GCSE and I don't seem to struggle that much, the way I see it with mechanics is you actually have to think and understand what the question wants before doing anything, the actual Maths part is very simple and straightforward, just abit of algerbraic manipulation and some simultaneous equations, unless I'm mistaken.
