    Well, I got A grades, and I spent most of my 'revision time' gaming...

    It's just a matter of making sure you understand stuff as you go along, not forgetting that stuff, and trying loads of past papers when it comes to later in the year to make sure you're not fooling yourself into thinking you know stuff. They're a good way of pinpointing weaknesses, too.

    It's all a matter of confidence. If you're not confident, work out why, and fix it

    I'm at Sixth Form, right now I average 2 hours of lessons and 3 free periods per day. That time is easily enough to keep my work going during the week. Maybe an hour in the evening if there's more to do. At the weekend, I usually take Saturday daytime off to relax (I work in the evening), and use Sunday as a day for doing any heavy work (research projects etc.).

    I really believe that free time is important for a healthy student
