    Meh, not doing a lot tbh, I have got so many NABs right now, and I have a maths prelim next week, planning to start mega revision in the easter holidays, doing a lot on the weekends but during the week it's normally nab prep and trying to make sure i don't crash and burn in the maths prelims as it's my nemesis ATM!
    I just finished my second prelim for maths :'( but now I'm focusing on history Same for the easter holidays, that's when major style revision will occur!

    None yet, but the Easter holidays are right at the start of April and I've always found that's the best time to get started on the proper serious revision. Only have two exams to revise for anyway
    Only 2? You've got it lucky I have 5 exams, but 10 individual papers to sit. Fun times!...

    I'm guessing you are not Scottish. They are mini exams that you need to pass to sit the final exam, but don't count towards your final grade

    Ah, I was thinking about AH French, but god it looks torturous. I decided to opt for early university instead What are you going to university to study, if you are going to university?

    They are tests at c-level which you must pass to sit the final exam, but it does not count towards your final grade. You sit 3 or 4 depending on the subject, throughout the year.

    None...I should probably timetable my studying soon though...I've got all my NABs done now, my English folio complete, my French speaking exam and half my music practical (had to postpone singing until May) out of the way, so I've got more spare time now
