    I started on the 1st of May. I knew there were some subjects which I couldn't revise for the night before, so I picked out the subjects I needed to cover to get everything fitted in. I spent a week each on Maths, History and Physics, and a weekend on Geography 1 stuff. Now it's just revising when I have the time.

    It really depends on the subject; for French, for instance, I've only done a few hours; English Literature, I just re-read the play were were studying and familiarized myself with the novel.Biology I revised nonstop for three days.

    I haven't been setting the same time aside each day for revision; I go by what exam I have coming up. But when I was revising History and Physics, for instance, I started at 1/2pm, stopped at 5.30 for dinner, started again at 6.30 and stopped for the night at about 9.

    hmmm. I probably di about 2 hours a day during all of the easter holidays.
    Then, after school ended I must have done the equivalent of about 2 hours a day. Mainly focusing on german, english, eng lit, and DT, ie. my weaker subjects.

    To be honest, in retrospect, my 2 hours of revision were perfect. There was nothing in the exams which I didn't know, just a few mistakes which I made in the pressure of exams I suppose.

    hardly any, i'm so ******* lazy. i find it really really hard to motivate myself to work. some subjects i do more than others though.

    double science - probably done the most about five hours in total
    music - none
    latin - like an hour the day before
    english language - none
    english lit - none
    maths - none
    history - i read the textbook 30 mins before my paper 1!
    geography - about 3 hours in total

    in spite of all this i'm hoping to get 9A*s. aarrgh...is that way too much to ask? i know i don't even deserve to pass...

    isn't latin in 2 weeks time. ive got 2 straight days before each. evr1 else will be getin pissed while i revise ****in set texts!
