I was just wondering, when is everyone planning to start revising for their AS subjects which are being examined in June?

Everyone keeps saying how the workload and time pressure is very different from GCSE, so I'm keen not to leave it too late and have that awful "I should have started this ages ago" feeling. On the other hand, I don't want to start too early so as to forget everything in 6 months time!

Any advice on coping techniques for AS revision (particulary in the subjects I'm doing ) would be much appreciated!

Well I've started revising for Jan exams, obviously.

I usually start summer exam revision at the easter holidays. Get all your plans written up in half term and then you know exactly what you're doing for the next few weeks.

Erm, I haven't even started revising for my January exams yet lol, although I will later this week. I probably started revising for my summer AS exams in the Easter holidays, although as someone else mentioned, it's a good idea to get yourself organised during February half-term. For English lit, the best thing you can do is know your texts inside out, so spend some time re-reading them and make notes on the main characters and themes. For the closed text exam, you'll need to memorise some short quotes, which you could do by making flashcards that you can carry around with you or by sticking post-it notes around the house. For history, and I assume politics and RS as well, there's a huge amount of information to be learnt, so first condensing your notes into, say, a sheet of A4 for each topic with the main points would be a good starting point. You could then use flashcards, post-it notes etc to try to make them stick. For all these subjects, it's also essential to do lots of past papers- just do all the plans and maybe write the introduction and conclusion for each one with bullet points for the main part of the essay, as you won't have the time (or the will!) to write loads of essays.

I have started studying for january exams but it isn't much cause I only have to re-read Emma a few more times, Cant wait!!!! only joking.
But for June, I just started this week tiping all my notes onto the computer to make them look neat. Plus, it makes it easier then to delete bits and end up with an A4 sheet - when that will be done i'll start practice papers. Don't want to end up like last year cramming up everything the night before the exam and not getting the results I want.

(PS: does anyone do posters and diagrams to study there notes? Cause I wanna know if it really works, thanks!!)
