    The best thing you can do is get a good nights sleep tbh. Probably more beneficial than cramming, considering that your mental quickness will probably significantly decrease due to loss of sleep.

    I would start studying the whole day now and after your biology exam on monday. If you revise, you would be fine.

    I wouldn't recommend all-night cramming. You'll be so tired during the exam that you'll be unlikely to do your best anyway. It would be better to choose the subjects and topics you're least confident with and revise those, since you won't have time to cover everything. Remember to take regular breaks though.

    I would study the subject that is coming up on the day of the exam (e.g. study biology over the weekend, as it's on monday).

    "Extreme Coffee" does the trick for me. It's 6 spoonfuls of coffee granules with sugar in a tiny little cup, downed as quickly as humanely possible. Also try Pro Plus, or other chemical substances. Also if you believe the film Something About Mary, a tip for boys is to have a **** as it calms you down! Erm yeah.

    Bring a lucky mascot in with you as well, might be genuinely lucky as a type of "placebo effect"!

    Get at least 7/8 hours sleep, dude. Then revise the whole day, with 15 minutes break every hour... be strict with your time keeping.

    If you have worked hard over the past few weeks, you shouldnt need to cram like everyone here is telling you.
    Just do a few hours a day to keep your mind active, and get lots of sleep.

    If you havnt worked hard, then you'll find its next to impossible to get straight As in Sciences and maths with last minute cramming.

    Have you done any past papers? They should give you an idea of where you stand.

    DON'T do all night cramming - I tried that for exams at GCSE and before that (am a last minute reviser) and it is actually detrimental as it makes you so knackered you make stupid mistakes and forget what you do know.

    First of all: try to stop panicking. If you're like me, you must be feeling fairly freaked out at this point, which has paralysed you and rendered you incapable of working. I always leave revision til the last minute, and the later it becomes the more paralysed I get, convincing myself that I can't do it so there's no point trying.

    You need to chop your revision into do-able chunks. Look over what you have to do and work out how long you've got left. Skim read everything do you know what you're doing and feel like you have more of a handle on it. Then, revise intensively the parts that you think are most likely to come up or are your weakest points.

    And remember - you *can* do it - anything is possible in a few days if you work your ass off and don't panic too much. It's amazing how much you can cram into the short term memory. Go for it and best of luck I want all As too, and am desperately trying to cram revision into a few days. You're not alone Remember - UMS conversion always helps, and if you're a student capable of getting As there's no reason why you shouldn't if you work damn hard for the next couple of days.

    I have a history on Wednesday, S1 on Thursday and 2 Physics on Friday. The best thing is not to worry and take your time going over things, so you'll understand them better.

    You'll be fine - good luck!

    Well I have M1 on tuesday, 2 chem exams on wed, S1 on thursday, Physics on friday along with 3 economics exams in the afternoon....I have decided I do not want to bother revising economics too much, as I find it is just how I write my answer on the day that counts, and doing well on the multiple choice questions.

    I found going over past papers helps a lot, I have got a few sticky things on my wall about particular definitions (esp in Chemistry) and have written a compressed 8 side of A4 version of all i need to know for physics. I recommend making sure you know particular definitions word for word, because that is one thing that is guaranteed to be in most science type exams

    Stop worrying, work NOW, for the benefit of later.

    As a few people said, do past papers - should give you an indication of where you stand, what you need to work harder at, etc.

    About not sleeping before exams - if it needs to be done, let it be. But beware... would of course be better to work your ass off now and get some sleep and chill-out time before the actual exams.

    All the best.

    Do mind maps; that really works for me.

    Plus do plans for essays as well, just make you sure you get your main ideas down; the rest comes later.

    Revise what is coming up on the day before the exam. That's all you can do as the exams are one after another. Remember not to cram and sleep late!
