I'm thinking of doing this with a few of my exams - particulary ICT. I really don't know what to revise and looking through past papers, it's stuff that even if I did revise, it will not even be on the exam paper.

So, I'm taking a risk and probably won't be revising for that exam. :rolleyes:

Anyways, would you ever go into an exam without revision?

No way. I would worry way too much and just make a complete and utter mess about it.

Just go through the past papers and revision guides. Ask the teacher for help.

I did my GCSE English Lit exam with no revision whatsoever and managed to get an A - it's the one subject I was a natural at. I regret not taking it to A Level now...

Yes, I have gone into an exam without revision many times. However I wouldn't advise it. The times that I have done this, I've got much lower grades.

Did pretty much nothing for Int 2 Maths, Physics, Music, French and P.E last year.

Ironically scored higher in the first four above than I did for History, which I spent several days revising on :p:

Aha, you actually have to do revision at A level :p: But yeah, it's definitely one of those subjects at GCSE where if you have a talent, it doesn't require revision to get an A.

I did for all my Science exams and got Cs, however I wouldn't recommend it to anyone as I'm particularly lazy and just scraped those grades.

without revision? well some people can as long as they have good teachers always listen in class and always do their homework then yes its possible.
Unless there are people that do not ever go to school then its not really possible to go into an exam without revision cos there is always some type of revision in class.

GCSEs arnt that bad for it, if you kind of understand it enough to write something that sounds like you know what youre talking about, or if you dont care what you get.

Perhaps it was a good choice not taking it then! :lol:

Not if I had a choice.

I got (swine?) flu after my non-calculator maths exam so I spent a few days off (excluding weekend) and I could not do any revision as I was always in bed. Thus had to do my calculator exam with little/no revision.

I would always suggest revising . Unless you don't have a choice

If you go into an exam without any sort of preperation, then all I can say is you deserve to fail.
