    Starting my AS level revision on Monday. I have 3 exams this January, but only planning to revise for 2 of them during the holidays.

    I have:
    Maths -C1- Monday 10th January
    Biology - Unit 1 - Tuesday 11th January
    English - LT1 - Monday 17th January

    So all in all not too bad, but just wondering how to go about revising. I'm hoping for 3 good A's if possible.

    I'm planning to do 2 hours of Biology and 3 hours of Maths everyday during the holidays minus Xmas, Boxing Day and New Years Eve. And then after both these exams start on my English Lit revision.

    If this enough? Or even too much?

    It's about quality not quantity, so depends on your methods of revision and how much you take in as opposed to how many hours.

    But i would say that 2 and 3 hours is more than enough time.

    Have you started past papers for maths ?

    As said it's about quality of revision which is important. Biology however is one where percistance will pay off so I suggest little and often work with that. Go over your notes very regularly to get each topic clearly in your memory as the questions are quite wordy and require a general understanding of each topic. Maths will be easy enough given a couple of hours of practice a day if you're already reasonably familiar with the concepts. I'm sure what you've suggested will be fine, really you'll be able to tell when you do past papers how much work is required to get you up to speed.
