    People who say they have, actually have revised.

    Plenty of people say they barely did any revision, but that's really not true.

    I reckon that people who say they revise last minute already have a great foundation on what they know. So its not like knowing nothinf whatsoever and revising the day before. If you were like that I doubt you would achieve an A.

    I think for psychology that happened, but it worked abysmally for my other subjects, even when for chemistry i started quite earlier on before exam season hit
    Edit: this is for A levels

    This, I got A*A*A* at A level and only actually "revised" 1 week before my exams. However this was after paying attention in class all year, doing all the homework set including past papers (my college set past papers as part of homework towards exam time) and generally working during the year.

    Is it possible to do little dedicated revision and get A/A*? Yes
    Is it possible to do little WORK and get A/A*? No

    How come you're asking this question? I swear you're well prepared for your exams haha. It's me who needs to know this, I did it in GCSEs but with AS I think I am screwed. With Chemistry maybe, I'm not even kidding. I don't know how but I have friends in the year above me who just chose subjects to study before the night and it came up, then there are those who did the 'this hasn't come up' method and it worked. I'm trying to do this for Physics but who am I kidding.

    I re-learned everything for unit 1 of aqa law and came out with a few marks away from A for that exam. I had plenty of exam timed practice during the year though (but wasn't doing so well)

    I personally am not planning to last minute revise

    I believe if you know the content fairly well, you'd only need a few days per subject unit and you'll be fine

    If you have a good understanding of it, it is possible. Like last year for Geography GCSE, all I did was quickly memorise case studies the day before and I got an A*.

    Doing the same this year for AS level but I have a solid foundation due to the content being 99% the same as GCSE and the fact that I actually worked hard during the year.

    From my experience it only works for maths and further maths. If you get it quickly then you don't need to revise for very long before (<1 week).
