    Right,
    I've been revising all long, up until a week or so ago, whilst at college I did loads of work. In revision sessions and such, I know all of the content, not enough, but quite alot.
    I have AACC and need AAB at the end of A2.

    I have what i'd call good notes, a good basis of knowledge to start revising on top of and my exams are around the 15th of Jan onwards.

    Is it too late to start revising Monday?- i feel like i've blown it

    For two exams and one resit ( the resit is not that important).

    Honest opinions, if this was you, would you have messed up by starting now?

    Look at it like this; you should definitely start revising Monday.
    You can't go back, so you may as just give it a damn good shot starting now.
    Anyway, if you've made good notes and kept on top of the work, and have a fairly sound knowledge of the content, you should be fine.
    G'luck, bro.

    This is bad of me, but this year, no one has said "now is the time", there has been no sense of urgency :'/

    It depends on how you revise and how you utilise your time. Myself, I could never start revising now, I never had the patience. For my a-levels I started revising maybe just over a week before and just put in solid hours of it because thats how I learn... in bulk I guess. But if you need more time to space it out and stuff then by all means start monday. But no, its not too late! not by a long shot, you've got loads of time and you'll find that if you have been to the lessons a lot of the info will just come to you in the exams from the back of your mind. Don't panic.

    Probably not the best thing I should be doing, but that's made me relax ah, cheers dude.
    I'm going to do a revision plan after Family Guy :cool:

    If I fail, I failed in control.

    Start revising now, if you have been working hard all year you should have a good start. You cant waste all that time just because you started revising a little later than hoped for. Give it your best effort and concentrate hard. DONT GIVE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Good luck !!

    Sounds good!
    If you didnt have the ground work then it would be pushing it, but revision is so much easier if you are actually REVISING what you learnt, rather than learning it all first time.. which was my problem.. I used to doss around so much never learnt a thing in lessons during A2 and just crushed in everything in a month.. but i made life harder for myself

    I mess around so much in lessons, I am an idiot, I'd rather be the class clown than do work,- but then during lunch, Sundays and on my free's this year i've been doing tons of essay plans and practise questions.
    Idk, i'm foolish

    You have over three weeks to revise two exams (plus a resit) - that is absolutely loads of time. Read through the content you don't know then get cracking on the past papers and mark schemes and there's no reason why you shouldn't get what you need. It'll be much more than I revised for my January modules and they turned out fine.
