Did anyone revise over the 6-week holidays?!
If so what sort of revision? Writing up notes? Revision cards etc?
If not, what did anyone do in September?
When did you revise/write notes up?
If i calculate it right - i will have a minimum of 18 exams next summer! With two per subject a minimum and more in Science and Maths!
Share away guys

I don't know about any 6 week holiday but if I had one I would surely revise thoroughly. The two years of GCE is crucial an difficult.

The only six week holiday I can think of is the summer one, in which case, no, I just did the homework set/ started preparing my UCAS application (e.g. wider reading). I had planned to at least make revision notes for the A2 topic(s) already covered but this inevitably did not happen.
Normally, I try to make most of my revision materials before I have a mock, but most of my revision takes places in the holiday/ study leave period before the exam. I don't like having a rigid timetable (usually I've just write a list of topics and then aim to do maybe two a day) but I think you need some sort of organisation with that many exams. AT some point in your revision, you also need to be looking at some past papers.
I think what you first need to do though is work out how you learn best - are you a visual, auditory or kinaesthetic learner?

I didn't revise during my 6 week holidays, after getting a load of A/A* at GCSE. First lesson back, we ended up having tests on GCSE Biology, chemistry etc and surprisingly, I remembered everything from 6 weeks ago. You won't forget the knowledge that fast I don't think. I was against revising AS before being taught as I thought it'd just confuse me, and it'd be weird if I started revising something like logarithms for maths when my class would end up covering it 3 months later, as then I would've forgotten it all anyway.
