    I don't have any January exams, but I am freaking out about May exams! When should I start revising? I was thinking Feb half term - good idea, or sooner?

    Unis I want to go to want AAB-BBB (Exeter the exception with typical offer being A*AA-AAB)...

    AS level btw

    I got AAA last year for my AS exams in May and I started during the Easter break, so starting any earlier should definitely secure that.

    I am not naturally intelligent (just a little bit ). So I will start hardcore revision then

    I have a hard work ethic - I sat 8hours solid yesterday typing up notes - so I have commitment. Thanks for your input

    I've started revising a week ago for january exams. Aiming for all A's. I have 6 exams. You'll be fine. Keep working hard in and out of lessons throughout the year. A useful hour in lesson is far more useful than an hour revising outside.

    Oh you'll be fine! I have a hard work ethic but I procrastinate like crazy. Best of luck to you.

    if you've kept up working consistently every week (doing homework as told by your teacher, etc), then starting at the beginning of april is okay, but you should probably start in march just to be sure

    The earlier you start revising, the better! It's best to be prepared. If I were you, I'd start revising now
