    I'm doing Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Philosophy and Ethics at AS.
    I haven't started revising yet and my first exam is on the 18th of May.
    Have I left it too late to start revision?

    Also I would appreciate it if you could recommend any revision techniques.
    Thanks

    For January modules I had:

    AQA Biology UNIT 1 - A
    AQA Chemistry UNIT 1 - A

    It's only ever too late to revise when you've already taken the exam.

    Too late? Nope.

    Although I did get a D and U in Philosophy and Ethics...

    If you want good grades, start revising as soon as you can.

    Read your notes, make notes on the notes. Read your original notes again. Make a new set of notes. Compare the two (new) sets of notes.

    This should get the info in your brain. Took Ds to As doing far less work than above...

    No it's not too late! Better get working fellow slacker The only way it sticks in my head is if I do that primary school-esque "look cover write check" thing.

    Although for 'mocks' I revised the day before for 12 hours without knowing what topics would be in the exam and got 97% ... proudest moment ever.

    I'm predicted BBBB.

    For January modules I was predicted DD but got AA (Biology and Chemistry) so you know..... I don't think the predictions are very accurate .

    Not at all too late. But asking people about it on here isn't doing much good?

    I have learnt biology and philosophy and ethics so i only need to go over them again but i still have about half of chemistry and maths to learn and then go over. I shouldn't have slacked in chemistry and maths lessons.

    There's loads of time tbh, but start sooner rather than later. Less stress involved that way.
