My offer for university is AAA, I'm studying Biology, Chemistry and English Literature. These are the exams I have:

- Biology (x2)
- Chemistry (x3)
- English Literature (x2)

Two of the above exams are resits. I scored ABBB last year also. I don't want to start early though as I'll just forget the content and reach my peak too early. When is the right time? I just keep finding when I plan and be extremely organised in terms of revision, I perform average (B- ish) whereas when I cram and do things spontaneously, I score very highly so I'd get A*/A as with my mocks, pretty sure cramming isn't sensible with my A2 exams though.

Why don't you start lightly now and then see how much you need to increase your revision?

Are you just looking for someone to tell you it's okay not to bother starting until very near the exams?

Well I'm doing 8 exams and started about a week ago (6 A2's and 2 AS resits) - I'd suggest you start pretty soon, seeing as you're sitting 7...

I have sort of started lightly already, as in all my free periods at college, I go to the library and go over everything we've done so far and so I don't do much work at home as I'm usually up to date with my subjects. Also, no I'm not looking for somebody to tell me it's okay not to bother, as I'd probably end up revising pretty soon anyway as I'm a big worrier, it'd be interesting to see if other people have started already as that'd show me that I should probably get a move on now too.

yeah I think I'll make a revision timetable next week and decide where I'm at with each subject, then I'll prioritise my May exams first, followed my June ones.

Hey,

I will tell you the best way to revise.

In every subject, there will be few topics which you are confident about and few topics in which you struggle.

Try to master the topics you are confident in and you may ignore revising it just before your exams.

Topics in which you struggle, revise only them just before your exams.

This way you will remember tough topics and the easy topics you have already mastered.

Happy to help
