    I've been trying to revise now and spend most evenings and weekends just constantly revising but it seems like I'm getting nowhere.

    Additionally, I'm starting to feel a little burnt out with all this revision and am contemplating just doing homework and going to study sessions for now (I will still continue to practice for maths though).

    I am actually really behind on my work because I keep missing school but it's nothing I couldn't catch up to (fingers crossed).

    Anyway, my plan is to revise extensively during the easter break so I learn all the content fully. Then go on to practice papers in the run up to exams which start 4 weeks after the holiday.

    Is this enough? Personal experiences would be greatly appreciated.

    Depends on tons of factors: how smart you are, what grades you want, what subjects you're doing, etc

    I think you should start organising all your revision now (INCLUDING CATCHING UP ON WORK) and then start it in Easter.

    Ok you need to do TONS of past papers (I did Maths, Physics, Computing (and Chemistry at AS))

    Organising revision = make sure you have caught up on every lesson and you have a timetable ready to start revision. Make sure books + folders are sorted and get a checklist for which past papers you have done

    I'll be starting serious revision in April most likely. Revising about 10 hours+ a day. I have exams on the 26th, 28th, 29th of april and 5th and 13th of may. Although I'm 3rd year uni so have infinitely more stuff to learn than you haha
