How should I revise? Should I sit and work for 3\4 hrs straight day or take breaks after every 30 mins or so??

What works best for you guys??

Breaks! All the way! I can't revise without at least 15 minute breaks in between. But right now I'm feeling like I can't afford to take any breaks exams drawing closer I think I might have to pull some all nighters! But yeah I highly suggest taking at least 10-15min breaks in between or you'll risk forgetting everything you've revised as you have revised all in one sitting

I'm predicted A's in my English A in sociology and B's for politics and Law. Yeah sort of, for English Lit I tried revising last night but unfinished business got in the way of that. Anyway plan is to pull all nighters from tomorrow. Just gathered some notes to use tomorrow for my English Lit. What exactly are you predicted in your subjects?

My predicted grades aren't stellar, evidently my lack of revision 'probably' reflects that...

By notes do you mean things you've picked out and noticed from the text yourself? Or are these notes your teacher gives you?

I would do bits and bobs, about a month/2 before, but I have 3 exams (1 practical in May, 2 written in June, I'm in a gap year repeating) but now I'm in panic mode and usually revise 7-9 hours a day, no joke, I give 1 hour per topic, then ease off before exams. I take little breaks in between and have 4 hours to do nothing. Sounds harsh, but it's how I revise (best under pressure!)

Have you started any?
Last year I left everything to the last week before exams, worst decision of my life but it's harder to find the motivation to start earlier
