    too late????

    look I haven't started either and my first exam is also may 18th. If you think this is too late, then you probably don't know your stuff in the first place :P

    if you know it, you shouldn't have a problem beginning revision now.

    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 .
    Your teachers must have been like :lolwut:!

    You sound like you will do well. Lets both get our heads down for easter, it will be over soon...

    These are the most pointless ****ing threads ever.

    How can it possibly be too ****ing late to start revision? No matter how late you start, revision will obviously help. Starting late is obviously better than saying "oh no, I've left it too late, I'll just abandon any attempts at revision from now on".

    And it isn't even that late. You have over a month.

    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
    If everyone on TSR said it was too late - would you give up?

    Stop being ridiculous - start now and then you're doing everything you can - why ask if it's too late - just do it!

    I know that this is off topic; but I chose those exact subjects for my A Level options and so I was wondering, how are you finding them? Is the workload heavy? and is Philosophy and Ethics interesting?
    But in regards to you question, I don't think it's too late. However you do need to start revising now and really work hard.

    The revision methods that best work for me, are;
    - Making flash card with questions on one side and the answer on the opposite side. They're specially good for using when you're on the go.
    - Making poster/ mind maps and sticking them somewhere visible.
    - But most importantly REPETITION. You study biology, so I'm sure you know about the development of Neuron pathways as you learn and these pathways get stronger every time you repeat something. The stronger the pathways the easier it is to recall the information and the longer you remember it. Just try and get it into your long term memory.

    When you're revising;
    - take short breaks. e.g. Study for 45 minutes and then have 10-15 minute break. During this break leave your desk, go for a walk, drink some water or something. But make sure that you leave your area of study.
    - Drink plenty of water.
    - get enough sleep. I've heard that the brain process information that you've learnt during the day when you're sleeping ( I think)
    - When covering a topic, write questions as you go along. Once you've finished it, you can answer the questions and find and weak points in your understanding.
    - do practice/ past paper (under timed exam conditions). You get to find any weaknesses and locate areas that you need to work at. It also helps you get used to the exam scenario, so the actual exams aren't so stressful.

    Good Luck on you're exams and I hope you find this helpful.

    I hope not...
    This!

    I'm lucky because my exams start at the end of May... 25th and 28th but there's so much to revise I should start early. I'm more worried about A2 RS, that's a killer.

    OP, no, it's not too late. I think everyone's starting around now, now the Easter holidays are here!

    Even if it is too late, there's no frigging way I'll be giving up now!
