    I'm stressing out because I only have this two week easter break to complete all my revision for my May/June exams..

    Have I left it too late or can I still get an A in each of my subjects with intense revision everyday?

    Depends on how many exams you have.

    You've still got a little more than a month left until the May/June exams. It'll be tight, but should be doable.

    I would suggest starting right now rather than making threads about it on TSR.

    I guess it depends what subjects you do and how well you have focused in class. If you start revising now, and do a good amount each day then you should be fine. Just make sure you know everything needed on the specification, especially for essay based subjects

    it's best to get English lit and psychology sorted out first then, what is it you're not confident in precisely?

    Why do you only have Easter. Exams are what - late May, early June? Of course you have enough time.

    I started revision for my A Levels in the first week of April. The hardest part, for me, is always getting started. So I started off lightly with an hour or so per day then ramping it up so by the time study leave came around I was living in the library. I got an A in every paper I sat and the only reason I didn't make my firm choice university was because my coursework had already been moderated down by the exam board.

    well at least you know where to start with psychology! As for English (i do Lit too) it's best to start with summaries of the texts and the chapters, and then when than makes more sense, start getting your head around how to answer the essay questions

    3 hours per subject per day? You'll burn out! Try to revise smartly when it comes to your subjects. Highlight those areas in which you are struggling and focus on them, after a while you'll become more confident and less stressed.

    With quality revision you'll find there's still plenty of time to revise to do well in your exams. I do maths and 3 sciences and have yet to start revising!
