My first exam is on the 20th May, then the rest are in the last week of June, so I'll start revising a bit later, at the moment I'm not doing a lot of revision, just the odd P4 paper

And I thought I had it tough! I've got 6 and I've basically just started going over the maths course, doing summary pages for biology but i resent chemistry at the moment!

Is anyone else doing wjec by2?

Oh and good lick everyone with your revision! It will be worth it in the end

Yesterday. 6 exams so I really needed to get started. First exam is on the 17. And there's nothing wrong with counting down days
Thank you! I wrote on the calendar how many days left so every morning can scare myself into revising! I feels like I've only just finished revising for the last bunch!

I have four exams this year which are english/german/admin and maths and I've started revising for german and admin and will get round to maths and english this week.Trouble is,my teachers are still giving me loads of homework as well as revision so finding it hard to balance it all.

Beginning of June. Can't make myself revise when I think the exams are ages away, so two weeks before I'll cram everything and just forget it the day after the paper.

In theory I started last weekend.
In practice...hopefully just before Easter.
But I have 2 bits of History coursework and a bit of English Lit coursework which I have to get done before Easter, so they're taking priority...I also have quite a bit of stuff still to learn on the syllabus for French and History

My first exam in the 10th May ish I think, but it's French speaking, and after that I only have 3 others and they're not until the 10th June ish.

I would kill for history coursework, my exam board means that the final 50% rests on the last 2 exams, which can only be done in the summer.

How do you revise for history, i feel i do fine but itd be nice to hear from a future oxford history graduate

Ahh, you're really unlucky having no coursework. I think how you revise depends on what sort of exams you have. This year, for example, I'm doing Russia from 1855-1964, which is a synoptic paper. So we've basically been advised to go through each key theme (e.g. peasants/workers/opposition etc) and make notes on that throughout the period, drawing out similarities and differences and then coming up with theses at the end. However, that's pretty specific for the type of exam I had!

Last year, for my paper that was purely based on remembering things about Britain 1918-55 and then regurgitating knowledge in the exam, I made lots of spider diagrams, firstly chronologically and then for themes like health and stuff. For the key acts and laws, I made flashcards with the date and the law and what it did and my friends and I tested each other on them in our frees.

For the other exam I had, which was based on sources and Germany 1933-63...erm...I can't really remember! I think I just did lots of spider diagrams, and again good old flash cards for key laws. Also, doing timelines for each leader, period or theme can also help.

I hope that rather massive rant was some use, you can PM me if there's anything specific you'd like to know

Same spider diagrams were great;

Unit 1; Russia 1900-1945 Spider diagrams and basic regurgitation
Unit 2; Germany 1918-1945 essays and thousands of practice sources
Unit 3; Clash of ideologies USSR-USA << ?? same as unit 1
Unit 4; Ireland 1900-1925 <<?? same as unit 2

Good luck oxford awaits you
