    I'm in year 12 and in assembly the other day they told us that we should start revising if we haven't done so already. This strikes me as way too early to start revising. I might start doing a tiny bit over half term but even that seems too early. Thoughts?

    Well they're A-levels, I don't think you can ever prepare for your future 'too early'.

    Well I do politics which is old style so I'll be doing that exam and I'm dropping sociology so I'm taking the AS in that. I have to do internal exams in history and English and I can't just wing those because my teachers will use the results of those for UCAS predictions so they do actually matter but not as much as externals because they won't just use our internal exam results for predictions.

    Yes, I am also in Year 12 and I have been advised to start revising now.

    However, I started at the beginning of January. If you don't have enough stuff to note, compress what you have already and add to the notes as time goes on. It will make the last few weeks/months of revision much easier to digest!
