Hey peeps, I just want to ask whether revising now is a good idea? I pretty much started revision last month but didn't properly get into it. I want to do my best but the content isn't getting into my head. 14 weeks left - not a very long time...
I've made revision cards ect. and I just have a lot to do... I don't fancy timetables either, they hurt my brain haha and I worry about how much time I have left to revise, any tips?
Revision (yay) Watch

If you feel like your revision isn't working, then it probably isn't! And if that's the case, it's probably because you're revising in the wrong way. Although, before coming to any conclusions, you should try doing some past papers for the subjects you've revised to make sure that your revision really isn't working.
It's actually quite early to start revision now, but that's not a bad thing! Good revision now = less revision in April/May.
You're going to need to experiment with different revision techniques, if revision cards don't work for you then don't make them! For me they never work, and probably never will, and that's simply because everyone is different. I find that I learn best from doing lots of past papers, then watching videos on the topics I don't quite get, and also reading the mark scheme and writing model answers for questions I got wrong.
For you, this method might work, it might not though. So you should really do some solid research and experiment a bit because there is still time. Also, make sure that, if you do start revision now, you test yourself frequently. You don't want to learn a bunch of new material to have forgotten it all by April! Try to do at least one past paper a week. Good luck!
