    So what is the best way in which I can revise for my forthcoming AS and A2 exams in a short period of time? I know past papers are the key but is there anything else which people find really useful? Thanks

    CRAM- just try every quick method of revision possible. Look at a page and get a family member/ friend to test you and repeat; note taking is not going to help much now though

    Choose three of the hardest topics, make notes on them and answer questions on them. Then do two past papers for the subject. Do this for every subject, every day. You should be choosing new topics every day and make sure to make quick, concise notes. Don't have to be neat as the purpose is not to look over them again but just because it is better than simply reading the textbook.

    Sleep with your textbook/revision guide under your pillow the night before the exam. The information will diffuse into your brain.

    "Exams - Preparation and Revising", could help you. It is a free download from www.keweipress.com

    You might find "Ten Top Tips for Revising for Exams" useful too. It is a chapter in the eBook You Too Can Study More Easily: Tips for Dummies and Others which is also free from the same site.

    Good luck!
