    I'm planning on doing some intensive studying from Monday onwards - including studying through Christmas day (well I'm Muslim so I don't celebrate it anyway.)
    But anyways, what are you guys planning to do and how are you planning to do it? (Eg putting your social life on hold?)

    (Btw, this only refers to those of you who have A level exams in January).

    Only done slight light revision so far.

    Planning to do lots of the holidays.
    However I'm not going to neglect my other subjects just to revise for my exams in Jan (3 of them).
    Gonna juggle all my subjects around and revise everything I've learnt so far :cool:

      I don't have any exams, so I have a feeling my presence won't be entirely welcome in this thread... I plan to have a fab time and eat a lot and do absolutely no work...I'm going to do an essay tonight and hopefully two tomorrow so I'm free. Yay

      But good luck people who are going to study.

      Back on topic, I'll do some of each a day (maybe 4 hours max altogether). I won't go overboard as my exams aren't till the end of January :sexface:

      I suppose it's bad that I somehow enjoy revision

        Starting tommorrow, then take the weekend off to catch up on Black Ops, Fifa and all the games I've left rotting due to the work overload. Then continue throughout the holidays, hardcore, not on Christmas and New Years day though, obviously.
