    I'm planning on doing 3 hours a day. But knowing myself, I'll probably do half that or spend the rest of the holidays procrastinating

    Good luck with all of your exams everyone! I hope you all achieve the grades you want. Revise as much as you possibly can but don't drain yourselves out too much. Whatever you do, don't stress out, you've got more than 2 weeks to revise. Remember when all else fails, just :google: it

    I am going to revise about 10 pages of biology again and again from my textbook daily as that method got me a 90+ in AS. (As well as having a good memory and keeping answers simple and focused.)

    For chemistry I will revise from the textbook and do the questions in the textbook and internet as chemistry test is mainly applied in that it askes a few questions that are out of the box . Then I will do passpapers.

    For physics and maths questions,questions and more questions.

    I'm planning to do as much as possible. With obvious breaks in obvious places. No work on Christmas Day, News Year Eve, etc.

    Is anyone else doing Edexcel Religious Ethics A2 paper and know a good place to find revision notes??
    Why Artie, shock horror, I too am doing A2 Religious Ethics!
    And a good place to find revision notes is my computer

    Muslims believe in jesus so I find it strange that you don't celebrate it.
    so what? you're saying muslims should even celebrate hanukkah because we believe in moses?

    muslims don't even believe that jesus was born on the 25th of december so why should we celebrate it? we don't even celebrate our own prophet's birth (muhammed (saw)), so why should we celebrate another prophet's birth on a day we don't even believe is correct?

    we've got eid - 2 of them in fact, i don't see why we should celebrate another religion's celebration.

    you don't see a christain celebrating eid.

    I'm planning on doing some intensive studying from Monday onwards - including studying through Christmas day (well I'm Muslim so I don't celebrate it anyway.)
    But anyways, what are you guys planning to do and how are you planning to do it? (Eg putting your social life on hold?)

    (Btw, this only refers to those of you who have A level exams in January).
    So i guess you accept prophet Muhammad was the last prophet?


    Oh wait.

    A lot.

    In reality, probably 3/4 days. Which is annoying, considering the only exams I have in January are re-takes e_e

    As much as I can- i.e. 3/4 hours a day at least hopefully. Got 4 A2 retakes in Jan and where I go to uni kinda rests on them. I still want some of a life got a couple of nights out planned already, but trying to focus on revision during the day.

    S1, S2 and Physics. Planning to do 3 - 4 hours work a day from now till january 10th, but not on christmas eve, day or boxing day.
    But yea, getting these exams out of the way means I have much less work to do for the end of year exams.

    I'm going to Cornwall on holiday from Tuesday so am hoping to do most of my revision then. There's no mobile signal down there which will probably help, as there will be fewer distractions! Will spend up til then and after (around new year) relaxing, and just before i go back doing some more work. I have a little bit of study leave so will be majorly cramming then. I have so much revision to do :O I don't know anything yet it seems!

    I started my biology revision a couple of weeks ago and I'm just over half way through my plan so I'm on target. Never do much over Christmas anyway, not going out much only shopping and new years, so i'll just try and do a few hours a day or something

    i'm not sure if you know but this thread is about how much studying you're planning to do in the christmas holidays.

    were you even meant to quote me or were you meant to quote someone else because i don't know what the hell you're talking about.

    are you even in the right thread?

    Too much! I'll probably allow myself a break for Christmas and Boxing day though..

    I suppose it's bad that I somehow enjoy revision
    Same here I feel so guilty when I dont revise or if I take a day off revision :rolleyes:
