    Well, with only one January exam, I'm thinking an hour a day will keep the B's at bay. Crap loads of coursework to do though

    Probably about 4 hours each day.

    Will I stick to that though? Very unlikely :P

    Not looking forward to revising Biology and Geography; so much to learn!

    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).
    for the first time, i've written myself a timetable. i'm not working on christmas day or boxing day, but i'm revising all the other days - but not on weekends. even our teacher told us its really important not to stress yourself out and to have your weekends (or at least one day) free EVERY week.

    i'm doing 4 modules in january and i've sorted my revision into 3 sessions per day. i work best in short bursts of different subjects so i've got no more than 4 hours each day - most days this is only 3 hours. this is enough and still leaves me with enough time to have days for exam practise and extra revision time, before we even go back to school.

    don't stress yourself. when you're in the mood to work, work hard. when you really can't concentrate, get out of the house. do something fun. putting your social life on hold is a bad idea, it will leave you bored and unmotivated. maybe you could arrange with your friends that once a week/fortnight you all get together and do something fun, go out for dinner or just chill? that's what i'm doing and it leaves all of us feeling loads more relaxed, as well as giving an opportunity to ask any questions you weren't sure about!

    good luck x

    it also depends on what grades you're looking to (realistically) get, and what level you're working at at the moment. i mean, if you want an a* but you're currently at a D, there's a lot more work to be done. but if you're looking for an a and working at about a b or so, you should be fine!


    and if your as exams don't work out, you can redo them. i'm doing my a2's and i'm not going extreme on revision, it'll make me worse if i'm stressed out.

    I want to do 3 hours of revision a day. Realistically. 4 hours is pushing it.

    Yeah, I'm gonna be revising hard, except for Christmas and New Years when I'm visiting family and stuff. I don't want to let my teachers down for predicting me A*s :argh:

    I plan to just go to my library after i pray fajr inshallah and stay there for the whole day and go back home when it closes. I need the grades as i have 3 exams 2 of which are retakes. This is starting from tomorrow assuming my library is open due to the calamities the snow has caused. If that isn't the case then i might go mosque and study there for the whole day. Can't do studying at home, too many people. Good luck to everyone though, i hope everyone achieves what they want.

    I only have one exam (AQA economics unit 1) in the mock I got an A so I don't really have an excuse not to get the same grade.
    I've spent the best part of the last few weeks revising 3-5 hours a day which I'm hoping should be consistent throughout the holidays up until the exam

    good luck everyone
