    Yeah, I agree with the above poster. You're being melodramatic. I've got 16 A-Level exams in January. 9 exams is nothing.

    So no, 9 isn't a lot - just set your priorities right and revise accordingly (eg do more studying for the exams that need it beforehand during exam leave and the night before focus on the exam the next day)

    Hey,

    I'm currently planning on 11-12 exams , 4-5 of which are retakes!
    I am starting revision now, mostly the retake modules, so that I am prepared for them well before the exam dates.

    As for in the actual exam time it depends on how long the gaps are between each exam. I think you should at least be revising for the upcoming exam and the one after that, so you are an exam ahead in terms of preparation. Although if it's consecutive days, I usually just revise for the closest exam.

    Think back to GCSE, and how you managed your time then, as it's a similar amount of exams.

    But remember to do other stuff than just revising! Exercise/sport is really helpful.

    A bit vague, but hope I could help!

    Edit: also obviously focus more of your time on topics you find hardest

    Thank you for all your replies, I know that compared to other students 9 exams is not too much, but I just didn't want to be too focused on my retakes that I don't do as well in my A2 exams. The main thing I am worried about is that they are all back to back!

    Do you mind me asking what grades she got, and which subjects she take?
