    Hey everyone,

    I'm wondering how much other first years are revising for their exams? I have 4 exams, the first being 6 weeks from now, and I've done pretty much nothing, which is probably stupid given that I've also done basically nothing all year...

    Anyway, I'm at the LSE, and most people I know are revising between 5-10 hours a day already, and although I know it changes nothing, I was hoping to get some reassurance that other people weren't doing so much? If I'm wrong about that then I know I really do need to start doing a lot more...

    Oddly enough I'm not even stressed about exams at the moment...

    Cheers!

    I know first years who just did all nighters and went into the exam hall. For me, I start revising at the start of the easter hols - I spend ~ 5 - 7 hours a day revising? When I was a first year, reduce that to 4 - 6. Just don't stress out, and be realistic and sensible and you'll be fine.

    When you say all nighters, do you mean, literally just the day before the exam and that was it?

    Thanks

    Yeah I'm wondering this. I'm in my first year, today was my first day of proper revision, my exams are 6 weeks away, and I've done basically nothing all year apart from the odd essay and about half the reading I was meant to have done. Panicking a bit now.

    I hope I'm not being delusional thinking I can still pass. I think I'm going to try to do about 6 hours a day for the rest of the holidays but we'll see if I stick to it.

    I tend to put-off revision until the panic begins to set in.
    In January, I did my two 2000 word term-papers the night before they were due in. Didn't sleep, just mixed powerade and coffee. I passed and only began exam revision the day before and passed. So I'm holding out hope for when I do eventually start revising.

    about 3-4 hours a day, last year I was doing really unhealthy amounts, then when it came to exams, I just felt completely burnt out, so therefore I'm trying not to over do it
