    Feel like I should've replaced the 2 hours I spent playing Dead Island revising today.

    Cone of shame.

    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...
    Exams are memory tests. Most people don't have photographic recall.

    Everyone is different in terms of how they revise; if you think your technique is good then continue to use it. A lot of people have a different amount of exams in the summer too, so some do more than others or vice versa. It's about how confident you are with your subjects, I wouldn't worry if you feel you know most of your stuff.

    I find it so hard to believe that people actually are physically able to revise 4+ hrs a day.wuuut?!

    Something must be wrong with me attention span; the max I can do is 3hrs with plenty of breaks in between atleast 4 x a week due to part time slavery at R.I.

    then again, even if I didt have work,the max I could do is 4 revision days a week otherwise I get so fed up &bored of my work!am I the only one or somethingg:dontknow:

    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?
    I think FP1 is quite easy but FP2 and FP3 are harder.
    I tried to self study M3 and M4 but the school is giving me so much work, I never seem to have the time.

    No one can possibly answer this, everyone is different and has a different brain. If you have to ask, then perhaps, but it'd only be your fault. Start now, revising all day.

    I can't possibly revise all day long. But its true what you are saying about everyone being different

    If you want it, you can. If you're not fussed, you won't. I haven't played a video game in weeks, but I know after June I can play them all day. You can't decide to start revising in a couple of months, though.

    Okay so I did an insane amount on the first Monday and Tuesday of the Easter break. Was feeling fantastic and on top of everything. Did not pick up a book for the rest of the two weeks. I'm aiming for all A's (at AS level) and feel absolutely ****ed. Dreading tomorrow (back to school) but I'm glad to hear I'm not alone!
