    All you need is pro plus, a fan and no social life for at least 2 weeks. You may get depressed, but you'll get all A's

    We can't really help you with how YOU need to revise. Everyone revises differently and everyone revises different amounts. Some people revise a little every day, other revise a lot every few days, while others revise EVERYTHING a week before the exam. And if it works for them so be it; but just because it works for them does not mean it will work for you. You know yourself better than anyone and so revise how it works for you and what you feel most comfortable with. "I don't know how to revise" isn't an excuse.

    i did that for bio, and its proving more difficult then physics, its too much information to take in, and there are soo many "how science works" questions

    Biology isnt too bad, just make sure you learn the revision guide inside out, shouldn't take more than a couple weeks, thats all I did anyway (I read it through 3-4 times maybe)
    Chemistry similarly but do a couple past papers to get used the questions.
    Physics less emphasis on learning and more on past papers, practising the calculations, just do as many as you can!
    Maths once you know how to do the calculations and what not just lots of past papers (they make it so much easier!) and you'l be fine all As lol :P

    I start my revision (usually) a few weeks before, probs averages to an hour a day (in total for all) until it gets to a few days before, then cram and all went well so (y)

    Just Revise your butt off in the Holidays. Im in the same situation with a Maths C1, Chemistry Unit 1 and Physics Exam in January. At least a couple of hours a day should do the trick. Sleep well, Eat plenty of brain power food(fish, weetabix) and you'll be fine.
    Hard work pays off and I intend to do the best revision I can in the Xmas Holidays and good luck to anyone who is doing an exam in January.

    Dont worry we'll have enough time in the holidays, you just need to make sure you have a timetable because that what I done the past week and a half, and it has worked! Just plan how much you are going to do each day and what you are going to do, I plan reading all 3 textbooks in 7 days (20 pages a day for bio and chem, 10 pages for phys(but with questions)) then take chrismas off then do past papers on boxing day, and then do it all again in the next 7 days of the holiday but concentrate more on the things I got wrong. You can ask me for help if you want on biology as I'm finding biology the easier science compared to the other two, but chemistry has got me scared, so if you got any tips on chemistry please help
    REMEMBER THE JUICE IS WORTH THE SQUEEZE
