    I ended up with 5 A*'s in Health and Social Care, Biology, Economics, Geography and EPQ with about two weeks revision prior to each exam, lasting about 2 hours a day.

    Well social care and EPQ im not gonna comment on, biology is pretty simple you just go lessons and a few papers you should be ok but cant take away the fact A* is amazing especially for the amount of work you did, Econ and geography are essay based subjects so going to class and having a clear grasp on the essay techniques (along with a lot of luck for economics) is all you need. If you did that amount of work and you took physics you would have flopped I reckon

    Biology has more stuff to remember than physics, but physics is brainer. However, if you're good at maths and have a brain that can compute that sort of stuff then it would be easy. Econ, Geog and Biol all have a stupid amount of information and the accuracy + detail you need to get 90+% for the A* is ridiculous, and as we all have our strengths, I reckon you'd have flopped with the amount of revision I did. But yes, I'd have got u's if I chose physics and maths . As I want to be a lawyer though, it's all fine. What do you want to do?

    success is A-level is to do with technique -not hours.
    Putting in more hours , yes you're more likely to do better, but it depends on how you study.
    2 hours of productive study will always be better than 10 hours slack revision.

    I have friends who actually aren't that bright at all, but have epic techniques and are very organised (and yes do put in hours) hence why they do well.

    I'm going to start revising for my exams at the start of April.

    Don't want to start too early as I forget quite easily. When I do start, I am going to try and do two hours a day which should be enough considering you only need to get 40% in first year! (Who knew achieveing 40% could be so difficult?).

    For A Levels, I revised for a month and a half before my exams, 2-5 hours a day. It varies based upon the subject and how you feel that day I guess. I got AAB.

    Every year every set of exams I get more desperate in my revision. Annoys me as I pass very well each time but why do I get more desperate. Is it because I have exams every January and June since January 2008. Don't get any off until January 2015 as we start our dissertation then instead of exams which they put in June?
