    It's never too late to start revising, what grades you get will be largely dependent on how hard you are willing to work for them/where you are now. Obviously if you're working well below the level of an A then you'll need to put in a lot of work to make the change, whereas if you're already working at that kind of level you won't have to put in as much

    No. Personally, I don't see the point in having started revision in like January or early February. I think this half-term onwards is a good point.

    Are we talking May/June here? 😂 I know people that revised the week before and have got 4As. Heck, I revised a politics AS the day before and got an A.

    You don't want too start tooooo early else you might forget, but equally not too late. Easter is probably the best time to buckle down to serious revision.

    No worries. I revised my AS Stuart unit (to take one example) in History for about a month, maybe a week or two extra, and got an A in it. I think revision is very personal. Sometimes it benefits you to start early and sometimes it doesn't. For me, it doesn't. For me, revising this early on is a waste of my time - I'm not going to remember all of it by June (A2).
