Revising is all encompassing at A-Level, I forgot when I began. The earlier you revise, (when you do it earlier it really just becomes recapping) the faster you can mature in your subject and read more outside the syllabus which is really important when it comes to applying to Oxbridge in particular. Personally it doesn't take much to learn the content, but drilling exam technique is the time consuming part of revision.

I got AAAB last year and started revising in February

one exam, biology unit 1, I peaked way too early, in the mock I was 8 marks off full, this was a month before the exam, in the real exam, i scraped a B

This year for A2 i started revising at the start of April and i'm doing fine, by the end of May should be on A grade averages for all my a - levels a week before actual exams

Currently working at B's , 6 weeks before that stage

Whereas my friend who has a offer to study physics at cambridge, is already working at A*'s he started revision in September; my prediction and what I need is AAA so meh depends on what you want to do.

Beginning of April holidays last year was the start of ""formal"" revision, but I'd flicked through a couple of maths past papers in the January.

recapping and keeping on top of things throughout the year, starting to look at a past paper here and there before mocks in february, then in march doing 2 or so hours day, then at easter increasing to 4 or 5 hours a day. you dont want to burn out too fast though, like doing 8 or 9 hours a day 3 or 2 months before your exam is a bad idea. I only did maximum 4 hours a day from May onwards at AS and got AAAAA, but I kept a revision book throughout the year, revised for topic tests and did my homework and followed up on stuff I didn't understand, so really it was just recapping and doing past papers and if I did 3 a day or so it took me about 4 or 5 hours.
