    Ideally the earlier the better, but do it bit by bit otherwise too much could effect your brain

    I advise starting around 12 weeks before your first exam, thats what I'm doing anyways
    Also, if you want to ace all your exams, watching youtube videos on the topics really helps me. If you're short on time, you can even speed up the videos.
    Youtube videos and reading the specification got me 8 A*s in my recent mocks but it doesn't work for everyone.

    How about doing a week of revising in different ways to see which way works best for you? Then you can stick to that method in the up and coming weeks.

    WOW! Congrats.... What subjects do you do?
    If it's 12 weeks then if i start know i'm already a bit late right? I start my exams on the 2nd of May...

    How did you start studying? Like the first week of revision what did you do? Like did you re write notes, mindmaps, flashcards....?

    Do you use any specific youtube videos/channels? I think that's definitely worth a try especially because my highest learning style is aural....

    Thanks

    The earlier, the better. Now is a good time. I mean, not at this current moment since it's 11:13PM but. You know what I mean!

    Thanks I do maths, rs, english lang, english lit, physics, biology, chemistry, french, sociology computing and im about to start further maths. My yr11 targets in year 10 were mostly Bs so finding the right revision style does pay off!

    Yeah id probably start now, my first exam is the 16th may so i start next week

    In the first week for my mocks i made a revision timetable, wrote flash cards and mindmaps for difficult topics and highlighted my existing revision notes. I started late so ididnt have time to rewrite my notes in full.

    Maths - rawmaths
    Computing - computer science tutor
    Physics - drphysicsa + misslowephysics

    I recommend searching for your subject and exam board and accounts/playlists should come up that you might find useful
