    Are lessons in year 11 the same as year 10 apart from the topics?
    Also when did you complete the topics for your classes and start revision for the exams in May?

    Lessons in Year 11 and 10 are the same except you have many more meetings (e.g. sixth form and guidance) and you have many more controlled assessments. Most of our topics finished by december, we just revised until the exams from then on...

    Lessons in year 11 are basically the same. For us we focused a bit more on exam questions and techniques as we got closer to the exam period. Most of my subjects content were completely covered by Christmas, and revision started after that. As for home revision, I'd say start in March. I didn't really revise as much as I should have and if I could go back I'd have made sure I started around that time or even earlier if possible.. its best to have a long period of time to stretch the revision out rather than cramming in the 2 weeks leading up to the exam.

    Okay, thank you, I may start a few weeks into January so that I can thoroughly cover everything and then just before exams focus on my weak points, I'm just worried that I'm not going to have enough time so I guess its better to start earlier than later.
