    I thought having to revise for 3 exams especially over christmas was difficult but somehow managed to get 3 As. I did some revision and all past papers and flash cards which helped a lot. But now I have to revise for 7 exams at the same time. From the 13th May I have 4 exams over the space of 2 weeks. Then a week off over half term and 3 exams the week I come back. (we don't get study leave). So they are all close together and won't have much time in between for revision. I don't know what to do and how to spend an equal amount of time per subject. I have 2 maths, 2 history, 1 biology, 1 chemistry, 1 anthropology (which is 2 lessons per week) exams. This is all just overwhelming and I don't know how to cope with the workload. I am getting really stressed out. Any tips on how I can plan and organise my revision. Also, how much time should I put into each subject?

    I would say the first thing to do is work out which subjects you are better in, then what subjects are you the weakest in. Going from there you might decide to put more time in the subjects you are weakest in.

    OP, I'm more or less in the same position as you, with 9 exams but only one general studies exam.

    The way I did it was I took a week off after my January exams to organise myself and prioritise my work etc. I planned that I'd get the subjects that I thought were easy to finish and then retain the content (my 5 maths modules) out of the way first and then just leave myself past papers to work through and then focus on my physics and chemistry exams without worrying about my maths modules. This has proven to be quite effective as its enabled me to divide and conquer my subjects.. So to speak.

    Of course, now that its closer to exams the best thing to do is not feel overwhelmed by your exams as that's the worst way to go about things. You should, as ninalicious97 said, work out what you're most confident in, go over that first but only briefly. Then have a look at powering through what you're not so confident in.

    Hope it works out for you, and good luck in your exams!

    Thanks everyone. I've now made a revision timetable and It does look very crammed but at least I'm clear on what I need to do and I will stick to it no matter what. Never used a revision timetable before I just sort of revised bits and bobs whenever I felt like it but I have a good feeling about this one
