When shall I start revising? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have just started year 12 and I study English Language, Politics, Psychology, and Biology (which I plan to drop at the end of the year). As well as summer exams, I have mock exams in march. Shall I start revising now? Does anyone have any tips?

    Yes start revising now You learn to realise that the later you start doing revision the more you wanna smack yourself for not doing it from the off. This is not the chart I wanted but this illustrates my point:

    The more you go over the same info. the more it will ingrain in your memory and this should mean by March you won't start flapping around because you forgot stuff you learnt in the 1 month.


    - Don't exhaust yourself from revision
    - Past Papers
    - Get into a routine
    - Ask your lecturers to clarify anything, honestly they are employed for a reasonnn.
    - With Politics try and use some modern examples with your notes (look for them) as I assume you need to do this on the exam - you normally do on Essay based subjects.
