    HEY TSR,

    I took my biol exam in Jan (i think it was somewhere around the 12th), and i thought starting revision about 2nd Jan would be enough time for me to revise all that is needed, but unfortunately for me it wasn't...

    Do you normally need more than roughly 2 weeks to revise for the exam or not? When i revise it takes me hours to take in the info, and after 2 hours of revising the same thing, i just give up...

    I didn't manage to finish, the last section on plants... and there were many questions on them. (Argh - Potometer)

    So any advice would be really helpful. Thank You!

    Well last year for AS, I started in the beginning of January only using CGP revision guide, but was shocked with my grade C in March :eek: :o:
    So I retook it in June, and revised for it two months before the exam and then during the weekend before the exam.
    Always leave time at least two weeks between the proper revision and the exam.
    This year for A2, I was very organised and wasuptodate for revision from September :yep: did all the examination questions I could do after every chapter. Then I did a proper revision during Christmas. And then an other one in January. The more you repeat revision the better it gets in that brain
    I hope that has helped
