3 exams, 19 days, enough revision time? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have 2 on the 15th of jan and one on the 22nd

    Tbh my Rs resit I may not bother revising because it isn't a must that I get a better grade in it.

    Whereas by uni 3 business and economics it is vital to achieve an A (only have a 4 ums cushion after AS)

    And my history resit in which I achieved a very low C and need a B to meet my offer from Sheffield!

    Have I left it too late?

    It's not ideal, but certainly not too late! I have one exam on the 15th and 2 on the 22nd and my revision only begun yesterday. I prefer to do two-three weeks of intense revision rather than dragging it across a longer time scale. I'm sure you'll be fine, it will be a bit rushed but it's better than doing nothing at all. I think you will also find that the vast majority of people are in the same situation as you.

    Edit: By a bit rushed, I mean you still have plenty of time to revise it's just that you will need to revise more intensely due to the time scale. I'm also studying business/economics :P

    History will be the hardest as it has lots of information and facts to learn, as well as being able to write in a comprehensive way.
    My advice would be to focus on exam technique and know the basics. As a bit of inspiration, I left my A2 Business exam revision till 2 days before, and had only 4 hours sleep before the exam. The exam was to write two 40 mark essays. I ended up with 100/100 UMS. I felt as if I would be screwed but in the words of Kevin Garnett: "ANYTHING'S POSSIBLE!"
