    I'm really struggling with my revision in History. I'm finding it impossible to remember one side of the course - Pursuing Life and Liberty & Politics, Presidency and Society in the USA 1968-2001 - no matter how hard I try. I cannot understand politics! I'm fine with the other side of the course about the Crimean War, Boer Wars and First World War but I don't find all the stuff about presidents, congress and foreign policy etc interesting at all....
    I've made mindmaps for every topic, now....what do I do with them? Advice is appreciated!

    Anyway, how many hours are you guys going to aim for? What subjects do you do?

    I do biology chemistry and psychology, will aim to write 1 model essay for psychology a day (will take 1-2hours), chemistry and biology perhaps i will probably revise 1-2 hours as well so roughly 3-5hours a day

    More or less what I'm doing is a couple of hours (max 3) a night before sleeping... Varying the subjects every night, but I don't limit myself time-wise, do that and you'll find yourself rushing topics to try and get them done by a certain time! Far better to write what topics you're going to revise on and do it like that...

    Good luck in your exams, hope you get the results you want! Make sure you don't over-do yourself over Easter though- too much work is never a good thing!!!! - J X

    Buy this book: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Edexcel-AS-H...ref=pd_sim_b_4

    And do these exercises with it: http://www.hodderplus.co.uk/myrevisi...erty/index.asp

    As well as doing lots of past paper questions.

    You won't find a better revision plan than that. The Hodder books are the best you can get.

    Well, considering the amount of lectures I've missed, I'll be spending a couple of weeks catching up with those and after that I intend to spend every waking moment revising.

    This is the year I will not leave it all until the last second and becoming an irritable, stressed demon child a week before my exams like with my A-levels

    "Don't work yourself out too much, just do 8 hours of revision a day."

    Although its probably pretty good advice.
