    to revise i don't tend to follow the specification, it just confuses me so i just work through revising my class books and i've ordered a revision guide. Should i work my way through the book and revision guide and then do past papers or should i do them as i'm going along on what i've just covered? Aaaah help, what do you find best?

    I would write a list of all the topics you need to do, and right dates next to them when youre going to revise that topic (some might need more time). Use your class books, the revision guide and try using the spec a little bit. The revision guide might have examples of exam questions for you to try out, makes it that extra bit more fun... :P And I would say, 5 weeks, 3 weeks and 1 week before the exam, do a past paper and mark it. They are really useful to do often the exam board use very similar questions every year! x

    For Maths I suggest

    • Do a past paper
    • Decide on a couple of topics that you were not good at on that paper
    • Spend some time revising just those topics
    • Do another paper
    • Choose 2 different topics that were a problem
    • Repeat until confident


    I do not know how well this fits with other subjects
