    So some of you probably have mocks in a couple of weeks like me. I just wanted to know what you are doing to revise and what you are predicted. Also, how differently are you treating it compared to the real thing e.g. the time you spend revising/detail you concentrate on?

    Would love to hear your stories!

    Surely your school should help you, like give you tips or worksheets? I have 10 mocks to do in 5 days in two weeks time, so if you happen to find any reivision methods that work for you, I would be grateful to hear them

    Physics is the subject I want to do at Uni I like varying my revision so I have a revision question card on everything in the revision guide and basically make mind maps, do past papers and make summary notes. But I would love something else to try - it all seems to get repetitive as I'm sure you know

    revvision is effctive if you try different things so vary it a bit but you're already kinda doing that

    Same here, but I doubt I'll get A* in English Lang, English Lit or History. Maybe if I work very, very hard.

    I'm actually looking forward to sixth form, when I get to drop a load of subjects (ahem, English). Anyone else feel the same?
