    I have one sociology exam in January, I've made some notes and that's it really so far. I need to attempt a past paper and do the 10 essays I have set.

    To be honest, I don't think I've done much as I should have, what about you guys?

    Honestly, I've spent literally all day, every day revising except for one day as my parents forced me to stop studying. Sounds crazy but tbh I've always been like this and I'm a MASSIVE worrier over exams so I'd get really stressed if I didn't revise as much as I did! I've revised the bulk of 4 of my subjects and done all the past papers for them, left the last 4 days of the holiday just to kind of review any little things I've missed out, to do some past papers again, and to target my weakest subjects. I have biology, chemistry and 2 maths exams in Jan.

    I've got 2 exams (biology and maths). I finished my biology notes on the first sunday of the holidays, so I could just do past papers and going over weak topics so now I've only got 1 more past paper to do. For maths I've done almost all the topics by doing questions in the textbook and I've done a couple past papers. I didn't do any revision on the weekend and yesterday, to recover from new year's eve lol

    Not enough to be honest! I'm about a third of the way through completing all of the revision exercises in the books. I'm saving past papers for when I go back to school as I have a week before my first exam. I have six exams (2 chemistry, 2 maths, 2 further maths) so there's a lot of work to do. I'm going to spend the rest of the holiday revising non stop apart from tomorrow and Saturday morning when I have work. I definitely took too much time off for Christmas and new years, mainly to see family or because I was too drunk/hung over to revise!

    ive just been doing 2-3, 45min sessions each day but not every day, i cant concentrate for that long. I do past papers and then mark them and pick up on my weakest topics and then revise that topic by making notes etc. it's what works for me!! Im doing biology chemistry physics and maths

    Nil. A day or two before have proven to be enough for a good grade if one has been doing exercises and understands the essential concepts.

    I've done 6 days of revision. Not particularly heavy revision but given my reputation as a crammer, I'm pretty pleased with that
