    Is it bad that I haven't done anything because . . . teachers set so much homework (which is all revision) so is that counted?

    I don't think so if its really helping consolidate your learning but I'm the complete opposite I literally don't do any of the homework and just revise instead.. not that thats the best idea

    That's good if you have effective self discipline Wish I could do that but the school seems to think noone can revise independently and thus they make us stay behind for compulsory 'revision' sessions (that last 2 hours), it is useful because we get exam questions to do that are marked with us and we really learn how to approach a question buut . . . it doesn't feel like revision to me Idk im weird because it's guided?

    Nope a normal state school ^-^ So other schools don't offer coaching? Wow I never used to believe the teachers when they said we are lucky, I just thought it was normal.

    Haha I started before Christmas and because I revised for my mocks it made it a lot easier to revise everything. I have after school sessions which I attend so I don't forget the stuff I have learned. So far so good and hopefully I'll get 9A*s and 1A haha
