    Maths: Done notes, and started on past papers (except I still don't understand chapter 10 of C2)
    English Lit: Written four essays, made four pages of notes. Still need to go back over the texts.
    French/German: Typed out lots of vocab, practiced speaking 15 minutes per day for each language, but I really need to get a move on with actually learning topic-related vocab/planning essays/indeed doing more speaking.

    So, off I go now I guess!

    I am literally exactly the same!!!! except I'm doing the European Reformation in History along with Stalin....:P
    Hey cool, you live in York But you don't go to my 6th form because we don't do European history (dammit!). Is it better than Russian? Don't you think that History has about three times the workload of any other subject! Through the year it was an essay here, essay there and now...gads!

    I have five exams, and I've been revising loads over the holidays. I have two in maths - S1 and C2, I've almost finished, just need to make sure I can really do normal distribution and differentiation questions every time I get them :/.
    Biology, I've covered every chapter again, done the past papers and made notes on the mark scheme. I just haven't done two tiny chapters at all, we had a teacher who talked about George and the Dragon and cake instead of teaching us biology ¬¬.
    Also, history, I've basically learnt the textbook, just need to do some practice papers. And finally english lit., I've reread my two novels, and also done mind maps on themes so far, I'm so worried about it though

    I'm in second year but doing one AS which is Film Studies. And I'm doing 2 BTECS.
    Also, I don't revise. I can't. It's true. I envy those who can. It's like watching a person eat their burger without being messy and here I am with all mayo and salad everywhere! IT'S HAVOK!

    Feel like I'm getting there with Maths and Physics, past papers are a lot easier now than when I first started. There's just so much to learn for History though

    Well no aha but nearish :P and yeah, I prefer it so much more! As I have a general interest in religion etc anyway. Yes! I totally agree, swear all I've been doing these holidays is history...and I've still not got through it all!!!

    Currently Studying 4 AS + General studies, so 8 exams in total this summer:

    Law Unit 2: Pretty much covered everything, largely down to amazing teachers, now to just do exam practice

    Biology Unit 2: Read through 2 revision guides about 2/3 times now, just need to cement it all in my head and exam papers

    Philosophy + Ethics: Got mindmaps done for each section, still got some stuff to learn in class, and to actually learn the mindmaps....and then to finally do practice exams. Not my favourite subject simply because we learn nothing in class.

    History (Russia in Turmoil): Mindmapped everything, learning through it, exam papers done/doing just re doing

    History (Tudor Rebellions Source Paper): Done my second source paper, only way to succeed really is to do the actual papers for this i think, but considering my exams are just over 3 weeks away....ahh!

    Overall im mildly prepared but still a lot to do and just feel like im not doing enough!!

    I've made notes on all of Chemistry and just over half of Biology
    although maths i'm not worried about, and english lit i'm only concerned with the poems as i feel i know the novel well enough anyway (being i got an A on that part of the mock) and psychology... well i'm just ignoring that i take that

    I probably have a different book to you, but the first 3 chapters are easy and should be quick and the other one (hypothesis testing) is the one I don't understand
