    The day after my last AS exam.

    Textbook, YouTube, past paper, repeat.

    When will you start past papers?
    In maths I've already done a lot of past paper questions. In other subjects, about a month before the mock exams.

    You've got me to do mine now.

    I'm doing AS exams, and as you're in Y13 does this look too bad? To me it looks awful with exams on the same day, sometimes clashes and there not really being many gaps between exams. I thought with AS, the way exams are timetabled were better!

    So yeah does mine look bad? Any tips to revision for these subjects? When should I start revising?

    Your timetable looks similar to mine last year, and it was completely fine. Exams on the same day are good because you get them out of the way. Just revise as you go along you can't cram for biology and history, maths you can get away with cramming mostly.

    Did you do the same subjects, or was the general structure of the timetable the same?

    What were your results?

    At least you have a short break between C1 and History I didn't actually have any on the same day when I did AS exams, but it was nice having a few days between, like you have (a week after the first History exam and then over a week after the second History exam – looks good).

    It really doesn't look good!

    I guess I'm just going to have to really put my heart and soul into these exams next year. It feels even more daunting than GCSE exams already - and there are only 9 exams!

    Once you've done some past papers they'll probably seem generic and less daunting (at least maths will).

    I did maths, chemistry, biology and geography at AS, but geography and history are very comparable. Yes my timetable was pretty much the same, maths is annoying because you have to do 3 exams, which can be time consuming.

    Hopefully! I remember doing my first maths GCSE paper and I almost cried/vomited/mixture of both haha. I thought it was such a big thing...

    Yeah I suppose they'll become more generic and once I've done more content I'll feel happier!

    That's a ridiculously large number of exams! I'll have 5, and that's including resitting an AS Literature exam (two of my three subjects have coursework, meaning only one exam per subject for those). I don't know the titles of AS/A2 Maths units, but presumably you must be resitting at least something to have that many exams? Or do you have more subjects than most people take?
