    So for my A levels I took:

    Maths
    Further Maths
    Physics
    Chemistry
    Music

    Now I realise there are 5 A levels there, and had I have had the choice I would definitely not have taken Chemistry since it's the least interesting A level to me and it's incredibly tedious. However, I didn't have a choice since Further Maths, as of yet isn't timetabled as a result of low intake.

    Anyway enough of that. In January I have 3 very important exams, which I have been revising for but not structurally; I'm doing Core 1 for Maths (Easiest I have), Unit 1 for Physics A syllabus AQA and Foundation Chemistry Unit 1 AQA - these are all AS as you can see.

    At the moment I'm coping alright revising but I tend to do way too much revision for Maths and Physics because I enjoy them alot more and leave Chemistry to one side thinking,

    "Oh yeah that'll sort itself out and - what's to lose if I do badly? I'll just drop it!"

    How can I get myself out of that mindframe?

    Also I have another question, at the end of the year I will be doing a shedload of exams - what's the best way to balance revision?

    Thanks!

    Hey, I'm in a similar boot. For my AS exams, I got very high for my geography exam, pretty high for my Economcs but then, for English lit, I got extremely low so this year, I'm doing a lot more revision for ENglish lit then I am for other subjects (haven't even done anything for them even). My advice would be to just force yourself to give an equal amount of consideration to all your subjects.

    I'm also interested on how to balance revision come June time - what I tend to do is do either a day/several days each for each subject. E.g, fiurst few days would be dedicated to one subject, next few days another subject etc. Problem with this is that you tend to forget what you studied first :/

    I think I should add I don't have Music exams in January; they're all at the end of the year.

    Do your chemistry revision first. Although I'm like that, I've got Chem Unit 1 and C1, C2 and D1. D1 is horrible atm because I haven't done any practice so surprise surprise, I haven't started revising for that one yet :P
