    I need to make my AS grades (BBB) up to AAB this year to get into the uni I want.
    UMS points-wise, it's more than possible I just need to get my head into gear.
    I'm trying to get a revision timetable all sorted and my exams are in 15 weeks.
    Does anyone know how often I should revise, hours wise, per exam? I've read 30-100hours...?? Helpful, that is. Not.
    Also it's really annoying me when people as me if i want to hang out after school - I NEED TO REVISE

    I would advise you to revise whenever you have time i.e when you're out of school, don't be influenced by the people who ask you to 'hang out' because your priority at this age is to get good grades and get into university, 'hang out' can be saved for later, when you have secured yourself a future.

    I would say you should revise for all exams at once, but a bit more for the exams that are first, make notes for the following ones, so when finished the early exam, you're not stressed about having nothing ready for the next. Maybe 2 hours a day for each subject is good. But by this, I don't mean making revision notes, actually learning/memorizing the content is what revising is.

    Hope I helped a bit! :P

    Thanks you did. All my exams are over in the space of 3 consecutive days so that's annoying! I'm going to get all of my notes and stuff sorted within the next month so I can just hammer revising it all - I do German , Lit and English lang so it's quite hard to revise

    Yeah if you have it in 3 days, you really should revise for all then, so make sure you have everything ready and simplified to your liking. I'm also trying to make my revision notes at this moment, was just having a break, but will be back to work now!

    Good luck!
