    I do four A- levels and haven’t found it very hard except Englishlit. I want to start revising now for my end of year exam (AS) and waswondering if I should just focus on the other three subjects. If I revise Englishalong with my other subjects it’s going to take a lot of the other subject’stime as it has a lot of content. I think if I revise the other threesubject I can finish the year with good results but I'm worried about notrevising English. Any advice?

    Keep revising it, you don't want to not revise it now and not get the grade you want later on!

    I know how you feel, English literature is one of my weaknesses especially with the grade I received from my mock D: Id suggest revising all 4 subjects but maybe doing more of English lit if that's what you think you need to improve on.

    I think it's better to spend more time on English (your hardest subject) and get that fully done and understood by the time the exam comes around. If you want to do well in every AS and not just the other three, it's best to get this done first but also make sure you're spending time on the others too. You can scale it so that whilst it's still early, you can afford to spend more time on English. As it gets closer to May, you can start concentrating fully on the other ones (or just balancing out the time more equally) knowing full well you understand the content for every subject already.

    I've always found it best to first start with the hardest one, to get it out of the way. The less you understand it, the less motivated you will be to ever revise it so doing it first will stop that!

    I think i'm going to keep revising it for the next month and see where I am then.
