    Just worked out with 5 subjects I have 360 hours of test papers to do, that's 20 days, how I'm going to do them all in 3 months while not having all the notes done or even finished learning all of the specification I honestly don't know and am so scared, first exam on May 12th..
    I took accelerated maths where I do the whole alevel maths in one year so I can do further maths next year, so that counts as two subjects and then I took chemistry physics and economics.. 😩😫

    You do not need to do 360 hours worth of past papers! Particularly for Maths, they have a lot more past papers available than any other subject. If you do 10 past papers for each module then that works out as about 1 paper a day, which is manageable I think (but even that's probably overkill). For other subjects, there are generally fewer than that. It's definitely possible but obviously some good planning is needed!

    • Don't do alllllllllll the test papers... do specific PARTS of it, you know, the parts that are your weaknesses? for the time being, work on your revision and make sure you know the stuff...then, once you feel like you've covered everything, THEN attempt the past papers... okay, you can do 2 whole past papers to start off with and then mark them and see where your strengths and weaknesses lie...after marking them, carry on doing more past papers but pick on the specific questions that are your weaknesses and attempt them until you fully understand how to do them. Make sure you have a mark scheme out in front of you too... remember, it's the quality of revision that counts, not quantity
