    Today it dawned on me that there are only 2 months left until my first summer exam. This made me think now would be a good time to start revising properly as I'm currently taking 5 AS levels:
    Art (fine)
    Biology
    Chemistry
    Chinese
    English lit

    prior to the approaching summer exams I've sat 2 science modules and got an A in biology, but an E in chemistry (metaphorical sh*t went down), meaning I'm going to have to resit chemistry this summer, bringing my exam count to a toal of 6. Do you think 2 months is enough time to revise?

    It depends on how good you are at your subjects.

    Of course 2 months is enough time to revise. Just structure your time well and you'll be fine.

    Depends if you're really struggling with some stuff right now in your subjects and need help with those. Otherwise should be enough imo.

    If 2 months are not enough for you, then I really think I should throw myself out the window, since I'm doing 11 exams this summer in Phil, Chem, Bio, Maths, History. >_>

    Well, I'm predicted A*A*A*AA and my GCSE grades were 7A*s, 5As and 1B, so I should technically be good at my subjects. The only one I feel I'm not great at is chemistry

    Gosh, that's an aweful lot! Good luck If I count all my art exams, coursework modules and ISAs, then I have 15, but only 6 of te exams are writte, so it's all good Although saying that, one of my 2 chinese exams is just like 3 exams wrapped up into 2.5 hours!

    Well done on your results.

    Ah. Two months before exams is not too late. I suggest revising Chemistry the most if it is your weakest area, especially doing past papers to get the feel for what type of things they like to ask. :yes:

    Honestly, if it takes you 2 months to revise for your exams, you should -seriously- question whether attaining a place in a top university is a good idea, even if you get the grades for it. That'd be because you studied a LOT to get an A grade when others can achieve it for less study time, and since time won't be of such great availability at university, you'll need to have a good study time/effort : grades ratio, besides simply good grades.

    I started about 4 weeks before my january exams, and with having to deal with learning new stuff in the run up to the exams i still got A's.

    You have a lot more free time in the summer exams to revise because of study leave, so summer exams it's probably easier to get an A than in the jan exams.
