    ahah seeing as i didnt revise last year and failed all my AS exams (fair play i had 9 in the space of 2 weeks with 2 exams a day on some days)
    i have been revising since friday doing 4-5 hours a day before i even think about scialising revision for me starts at half past 10 till 5 oclock unless i take time out of my breaks to finish earlier
    I currently spent 1 day looking through my subjects for things i dont know and write the answer schemes on flash cards, i spent yesterday doing solely doing business questions and i am checking for my mistakes today and putting answers on flashcards (i did about business papers yesterday)

    I have 3 exams in january now - physics, business and chemistry - oging to be a fun 2 weeks starting on the 7th
    also yes my grammar and punctuation is horrible but i have never been any good when it comes to that XD

    I'm doing 3 AS exams.
    I feel prepared to some extent, just need to finalise all this revision, then its just maintenance.

    5 Exams, maths, physics & history. 2 A2's and 3 AS retakes. So hopefully if these go well the pressure won't be too bad in June but I haven't done as much revision as I envisaged, as revising over Christmas was harder than I expected. I have done a reasonable amount for 4 of the 5, but haven't even opened my books since May for the History module I am retaking and its in 16 days

    I only have an Eng Lit resit for which i feel quite confident with minimal revision. However, i also have mocks for which i havent prepared enough, so Im going to start intensive revision from tomorrow.

    7 exams in January, loving life. Currently living off excessive amounts of Kalms to stop me panicking lol. Least these are a bit more spread out than last January when I had 4 exams in 3 days. However I still have Maths and Chemistry on the same day. Bad times.

    Only got C1 thank goodness, however, this makes my Summer a whole lot more challenging.
    It's going okay, I've been procrastinating a lot (!) but I've covered quite a bit of content. After having done all the exam papers in lessons before we broke up, it's a case of going over things I don't get. There's 14 days left until it happens and there are eight chapters. So I have enough days to cover each chapter twice.

    Yes I can do Maths, I've already cover 1 topic so now have 7 in 14 days in case anyone didn't think I could do Maths. Oh the irony that would be!

    Got 2 main A2 exams, Chemistry and Geography; and a slightly less important two AS retakes for Maths (doing it to boost my shoddy AS grade). Chem is going very well, but geography is a tough nut to be motivated for, seeing the immense amount of content

    Been ill for the past couple of days, so that's hit my timing and motivation :/

    Do work hard guys, don't fall into the trap of thinking there's always the retake in June. Get it out of the way now! It'll make life so much easier

    sad to say it but he is right guys when you do a resit/retake the grade boundaries are pushed up so what got you a c before would get you a d in the resit - it is designed so it is not just a back up exam you know

    also if you took physics aswell you could have been me - but i got 4 U's last year XD
    me no likey exams

    I've got C3 in January... somehow I feel that drinking excessive amounts of Earl Grey and looking at text books is not helping at all.
    I've got C3 in january too but i don't find the past papers as repetitive as C2 or C1. Every year its something different and im really worried.
    Are you doing past papers or just practicing textbook questions?
