Thats why you got a crazy number of *s, i for one hate revision, its boring and takes time.
If there was a fun way, id think it wud probably be to do it with friends, but ive never tried it because i know we'd never get any work done.
Try using all resources available, go to the library for a couple of hrs at the weekend, use the internet for an hr everyday, do "Test Yourself" sections, make clear, colourful notes like u made ur post.

Im saying all this when in fact none of it wud make revision fun for me

good luck.

I always have music playing but as for dancing ,well it would make reading a bit difficult!

I always find my self singing the song words and forgeting about revising!
You can't really revise for English language can you?

English is my first exam so it looks like i need to look at my other work instead maybe i'l do some maths! (only if i feel like it tho!!)

yeah i've developed this horrible obession with listening to music when working, when it first started it was ok, but now its like a must. i can't see to concentrate much without it, is that really awful?

The only bad thing to come of it will be the horrible silence in the proper exam!! Thats something i'm not looking forward to now!

in an exam u usually feel a tad nervous/bit of adrenaline, this often makes u concentrate better. emphasis on the "Bit" and not "extremely panicking" btw.

i'm generally ok in exams, although the silence is kinda nerve racking, after getting used to everyone screaming at the teachers in lessons it seems a gift to sit in pure silence
