    I'm taking AS Edexcel Chem, Phys, and Math. Im doing Units 2 and 3 for Phy and Chem, C12 and M1 for maths. I already did Units 1 for Phy and Chem in Jan, and got 2 A's. The way I'd revise is Spend 2-4 Hours in the Library, writing out notes or solving papers. And that seemed enough for me. Missed a full mark in Chem b just 6 Marks -_- x'D

    I don't count hours at all. I have post it notes on my wall for everyday of the week with targets for example today I'm studying for my english exam, I will be memorising the biographies and meanings of six poems and poet's. I'm currently using the pomodoro technique, studying for 25 minutes then 5 minute break. Once I've done everything for today I'm going to start on one of tomorrow's target.

    Should really get back to revising now!

    Thank you!

    I was thinking of taking Further Math, and D1 as I'm doing engineering. But I'll have to study on my own, is it possible?

    How easy is FP1?

    Generally, if it's Edexcel especially, it's better to do the full Maths A Level first, then do Further Maths, because Further Pure requires knowing Core stuff.

    What are your current revision methods?
    I take my textbook and revision guide along with school notes and write revision summary notes or make a poster/spider diagram if it's more efficient or labelled diagrams (this is for more chem and biology). I then site down and memorise the key points/reactions etc and test myself by doing the examination style questions at the end of each unit. I will soon move on to past papers

    Don't revise and you'll have wasted a year, money if applicable, and you're closer to spending the rest of your life unhappy as you are bored out of your skull 5 days a week for minimum wage. No money, no holidays, no freedom, not even doing a job that makes a positive change to the world. Just going through the motions until you die, in your last moments wishing you could go there and do this.

    How's that?

    At AS it feels like I did way more work than I'm doing now for A2. I need to step it up, but feel demotivated after 3 hours... :/

    That's mad aha! I'm really organised but I don't put that much work in! I do hour burst from 9-7 with breaks for lunch and dinner and a break between each subject change (to clean my mind). I can only work efficiently for around 50 minutes so there is no point of me working 3 hours. I have 14 exams in the summer (10 A2 and 4 AS)

    No idea how/why people are revising 6 hours a day. I guess it's personal? I only need about 4 past papers worth of maths revision and I'm fine but this thread really scares me! I get paranoid thinking maybe I'm not doing enough even though I feel as though I know most of my stuff...

    Depends on how you revise and what you're aiming for.
