    i didnt revise every day, was hard with my house being full of other people and me not having a desk or my own room to work in. when i did work i maybe did 4-6 hours, with about 2 hrs of breaks. i read books, made notes from the books, like wrote out all my books into notes of only the essential info - cutting out as much irrelevant stuff as possible. did all the practice papers there were, and got my dad to read and discuss the text books with me. he didnt do a levels so it helped me as i had to explain some stuff to him (but then he also helped me with stuff coz he knows some physics and biology from some of the jobs hes had).
    do as much revision as you think you need. if youre getting stressed about exams, its coz youve not done enough work. i was never stressed for exams as i knew that i knew my stuff - and i have quite a high stress threshold so i didnt freak myself out like my friends did. some of them had like a tonne of that herbal stuff to calm them down lol.
    just make sure that you study properly, and do what works best for you.

    I will probably spend 4-5 hours each day with breaks in between. Im taking four subjects at A2 so more revision time is necessary.

    Yh for french vocab is important, especially the writing, the more sophisticated words you use, the higher the grade

    Im not sure how it is at your school, but at mine, for the oral we had quite a few practice exams, so by the time we got to the exam we knew it pretty well. Also, as silly as it may seem, I would kinda walk round my room and speak about the topics to thin air. It's quite good to get to know what bits you need to improve and it also test your explanation skills. If you speak it in such a way that you clearly know what youre saying then youre on the right track.

    There's no way to revise for listening other than just doing loads of past paper listening exams. Thankfully my school provided many of those.

    Thank you!

    No A levels are easy, and I'll have you know History in particular is a *****. Don't be foolish enough to look down on other's A levels just because you do the science ones.

    lol, alright english lit is respected and so is history. Both of these are what i class as secondary A levels. Primary A levels are the traditional sciences and languages. secondary are mostly humanties. tertiary are media studies, film studies etc.

    you have 3 secondary and 1 tertiary A level, so i guess it was wrong to say all easy subjects but u arent exactly going to have a hard time with them lol.

    The sciences are harder than history. If you are taking history along with say maths, chemistry, biology- you are more likely to do better in history. This is down to statistics and empirical evidence
