    Its about 4-5 weeks before most of my exams and i only started on monday.
    Struggled with coursework so spent too long on that now i have little time for revision.
    I have
    History Edexcel- 2 modules one on russian through 20th century and one on henry 8th
    English lit aqa-1 paper
    Bio aqa-2 modules
    Chemistry ocr salters-2 modules

    so should i be ok if i work about 10 hours a day during holiday (with 10 minute breaks every hour of course).
    I think i started sooner than this for my gcse's but i plan to be a bit more of an active learner rather than just notes for example plan to do at least 1 history essay and 1 englsih essay per day.


    Do you think i'll be ok?

    seriously, you do not need to do that much revision! it will only make you stressed and have a negative impact on your health prior to the exams when you need to be at your best. make a timetable and aim to do about 2 - 3 hours a day from now on. when you get closer to each individual exam, increase your hours of focus on that particular topic. you should be fine

    i havent started yet and am not planning to until tomorrow as i have had friends over from canada, one of which is a loud 3-year old. my first exam is the 20th May and i have 7 exams. im pretty chilled since most of the stuff ive learnt in school already, some hasnt been taught yet though. but its just a matter of refreshing my memory and practicing in my revision. i plan on doing 9.30 til 5.30 revision days though through easter to make up for the past few days that i havent been able to revise in.

    I'd be a double genius if I could do so much revision. I started revision for my AS levels 4 weeks before my exams and I was fine. Stick with the revision, don't wear yourself out, take breaks and you'll be fine.

    If you even do one day as you plan to you'll have done more than I did for my AS's.

    So yeah you'll be more than fine!

    I didn't start properly revising for my AS Levels until after Easter last year (granted, Easter was earlier, but I digress...), and I was fine (I got 4 As, with full UMS in 2 modules). Personally, I find it's quality rather than quantity of revision.
    3 hours focused work > 10 hours when you're half concentrating, because tbh it's kind of impossible to stay focused for 10 hours non stop.

    My first AS exam's on the 17th May and I've barely started revising...

    It's definitely not too late though, don't think you have to spend 7238374394239473 hours revising - like someone said above, it's quality not quantity
