    It's impossible to revise at this point? How much could you have possibly learned in the last week?

    You can't REVISE whilst keeping up with all the new content. I suppose there's a bit of sypnotic things to do for A2 but those will be easy and shouldn't take more than a week per subject.

    I haven't started revising yet but as i had no exams in January - one of the few people in my entire year - i've began making revision notes into books ready for revision. Proper revision will start about March [Exam questions/memorizing all the stuff], but i've been doing around an hours revision note-taking a night since say a week and a half ago.

    I think its fine to go over stuff a few months before the exam, that way when it comes to a month or so before the exam you will know everything and therefore just need to do past papers and understand the exam technique! Better early than late

    Damn guys this is early! You've only just finished jan modules - CHILL! I am all pro 'don't leave revision too late' and all but come on, surely starting this early will be of no use as you'd probably forget everything in May/June time!?! :p:

    My last exam was on the 2nd of Feb - I'm going to start revising / teaching myself R.S A2, as my teacher started teaching - but has been off sick for a considerable time, and probably will not be coming back.

    Otherwise I wont start properly revising until May.

    mid-april it gets a bit more frantic.

    Make notes now and keep them safe, so when you start to revise in say a months time you've got detailed concise notes to revise from, rather than having to do hours writing out notes/revising and practising papers.

    I wish I could but I have my History enquiry coursework to do as well as lots of other work so I guess I'll start when I get time. Ideally, 1st March. Realistically, Easter holidays.

    Not necessarily. For those who have subjects that require understanding and not short term memory to pass the exams, it's beneficial. Understanding only gets better with more reading, more practice over more time :yep:
