    Have I put myself at a great disadvantage by doing so? I'm predicted to get A's :/

    My AS are ABB

    I 'just' got the A in politics (in terms of marks) B in sociology (2marks away overall for an A) and B in English Language (148/160) *Just in case anyone is wondering*

    Not really. I started mine about 2 weeks before my first exam, and most of the time just properly revised the day before :|


    Depends how well you've understood it as you've gone along, and whether it's re-learning or recapping and remembering.

    Considering you're up at 6:30 to revise, I think you'll do ok. I never did any revision at A-level until a week before the exam, and the same at university and I've done pretty good (but I don't advise it, do as much as you can as early as you can and always try to excel), although it really comes down to how you learn/comprehend. But you're only ****ed if you **** yourself, but if you make a plan and stay on target you will do good.

    Why would you be '****ed'... when do you think you're meant to start? Personally I'm waiting until 12th April, which is the date I get back from my holiday to Paris, and then revising every day in the easter holidays.

    If you are ****ed, then I am definitely ****ed , I'm not planning on starting until Easter holidays and even then it won't become intense for at least another 2 weeks. Revision this early is pointless I feel, I'll forget it all by the time I take the exam. I've got 9 weeks! Plus I'm still learning the syllabus in college, I use all my time simply understanding the current work!

    To some people on TSR, you're ****ed.

    To people not on TSR, yo're not. Perfectly good time to start - if your courses are like mine, we're just finishing off the syllabus, so its starting revision lessons in college, and Easter will give everyone a good chance to get started on revision

    I understand how you feel. I am in the same position as you. Every now and then I wonder if i left too late but just start working and stick to the plan. I advise not to make the same mistakes as I did that is make a crazy plan that you can not achieve then feeling bad because it was too hard not to fall behind the plan. Take it by step by step once you start revising and feeling confident of what you know the worries of messing up the exams will go away. Any way I started telling my self the time I spend worrying is the time I could spend studying. I just try to believe I can do it its nothing.

    Hearing from students who have started revising a month away from their A2 exams in the past will help me feel I will be ok. not As( because As are much easier compared to A2, I know it can be done in As)

    All depends how well you can cram, I started about 2/3 weeks before and did fine, I cram quite well. Just be calm and you'll be fine

    No, you aren't. What I would say though, is that when I was sitting A2s I started way too late, but only because I didn't realise how long it would take to condense all my work into revision notes. I would think about that, and if you think your subjects are big, then perhaps just try to sort your notes out, then you'll be in a great position to start your heavy revision in a couple of weeks.

    Good luck .

    Depends on your IQ/efficiency.

    Work hard and you'll be OK

    The most revision I have ever done is reading through the text book the day before the exam and I got BBD at A2, missing most homeworks along the way and only really doing any work in class. IMO a couple of weeks is a huge time period for revision. I can't see how you can possibly see the time you have left as "****ed" unless you paid no attention at all in class.
