    3 exams, 1 of which is a retake and really not enough revision. I'm going to try and aim for at least 4 hours starting from tomorrow. I've found it impossible to revise since I broke up for the holidays, barely done anything and I hate myself for it D:

    Well I'm not aiming that high :P but I'm glad somebody else is in the same position as me! I wanted to as well but I just got lazy D:

    I've got my offers (elated with them) and I thought it would be an incentive to work but I just can't do it! What have you applied for?

    Hold on a second. Getting hit by a meteor is...worse then failing exams?

    At least Death by Meteor would make you famous!

    second GCSE year, got 5 exams in January and since the English literature (friggin journeys end) and English language exams are being mandatorily (not a word) redone in June i feel like i don't need to put much effort in them this round :/

    so not much revision here besides reading the literature and business studies book, shoutout to those using sam learning?

    I don't see how anyone can do 12 hours genuine revision in a day. You need to have at least 10 minutes break each hour too.

    :zomg:From some responses I better get working then! Though i do think 12 hours a day is a bit unnecessary. Still fair enough if you can anyway.

    Don't panic. I say your OP and was like :zomg: she does loads!

    I have 4 A2 modules and do about 2 hours a day. It's about doing high quality revision, and properly processing and internalising the information during the term, not cramming it 2 weeks before the exam.

    I've got four exams all in the same week beginning the 21st. These are:

    Geography
    Biology
    Physics
    Chemistry

    I've done odd bits of revision before Christmas but now I've decided to knuckle down and plan on doing around 20hrs per subject over the next two and a bit weeks. (not including the private study we've been given throughour next week instead of lessons). It's around 1-4 hours everyday during the weekdays and up to 7 hours at the weekend.

    This is more than I've done before and I got straight A's then, so hopefully this will mean I'm able to maintain the grades or maybe achieve higher.

    Do you think this is enough? Or should I try and fit more in seen as there is only a few weeks left?
    Thank you

    If your doing that much, you should have started your revision earlier.
