Say how many/what exams you have in the summer, and when you'll start revising.

Also share any revision tips you have/how you revise best personally

Well I've got 17 and I believe I'm going to start revising from February half term but I'm a huge procrastinator. But I'll need to push myself if I really want those A/A*'s.

Erm, the best revision techniques for me is: making a song out of what I need to learn, reading out loud when I'm taking notes and learning vocab and also making bright posters with lots of colour. Its mainly because I'm active and like bright things. Kinaesthetic learner.

Too many exams. I keep telling myself to revise well in advance but I know true and well that I'm really only going to start about a week before.

AQA and its great because they offer an additional grade unlike Edexcel and it looks easier than Edexcel's version.

What do you mean by this mate ?

So you get a sticky notes, write a short question with the answer on the back ? & Once you've got the question right numerous times you remove it of your wall as it's in the long term memory part of your brain. Am I right or do you do something else if so what do you ?

As for the topic I've got 12 exams in May/June

2 English Literature Exams (Reading + Writting)
2 Maths Exams
2 French Exams (Listening + Reading)
3 Biology Exams (B1, B2, B3)
3 Chemistry Exams (C1, C2, C3)
2 Physics Exams (P1,P2)
1 History Exam

=15 Exams
But if I get the grade I want for Maths I won't re-sit (2 less )

* I revise best by going through each subject, making notes on it, doing speific questions regarding formula's (maths, chemistry, etc) and going through past papers (and memorising the structure for the answers: Science)

I have:
- biology
- chemistry
- physics
-french (2 exams and 3 controlled assessments to do, aargh!)
-art
- citizenship
- r.e.
- maths (2 exams)
- English literature (2 exams)
- history

I think 10 of them are in May, and I'm already PANICKING.
Hopefully I'll turn the panic into productivity though! This week I'm starting to revise maths and French, because they're more about technique than memorising tons of info (i'll only do like 30 mins of each a night though!)
Oh and also I might start making mindmaps for English soon, for each poem and story I need to study.
Other than that, I'll probably begin revising science and history around Easter. For those subjects I tend to write everything out over and over, and make sure I know everything on the syllabus.
Hopefully I'll stick to all this! :rolleyes:

No fr each topic i may read a section and try and invent questions for example say biology (enzyme topic) i will read everything on this topic and write questions and answers on the sticky so every morning i can see these questions different ones of course and i answer them by the time my exams will come i hope that the different questions related to that topic will have helped hopefully and the answers will hve been in my head bt i dont write the same question numerous times just once and this post it note will be amongst many stuck on my walls
Hope this helps and good luck with your exams

Maths Unit 3 (IN MARCH, AND HOPEFULLY IN JUNE AGAIN)
English Language (resit)
English Literature (a resit - still haven't got the results yet. but hopefully, I won't need it.)

However, I'm in a weird position with Maths. I was originally doing higher, but I didn't bother with my mocks so the maths department decided to put me for a unit 3 foundation exam in March, and if I get a C in that, and if I want to, I can do the higher tier exam in June.

I have Chemistry this March though, and a unit 2 resit in Maths. D: I've already started revising for both my maths exams and my Chemistry. And I intend to start revising for everything else during half term, but more solid revision after my exams in March.

Looks like you are doing the same Further Maths course as me.I think its pretty easy but sometimes there is the odd challenging question that can throw you off.The grade boundaries are pretty low too.Only 112/175 for an A*.
