    One. Then about 10 in a week the week before my exams. I had about 10/11 modules though and only had three months to prepare. Do not do this.

    Do 2013-15 (IAL and R inclusive) a week before your exam as mocks to get an idea of what your actual paper might be like. Save them until then.

    Yep, this is how much I do. The day before the exam though I do about 20 if they don't take too long.

    I did one of each module every week, and then 2-3 weeks before my exams one a day, then 1-2 weeks before my exams around twice a day.

    One, and it's only ever C1.

    Once I've finished C2 and M1 - I'll be doing 3 papers in each of the 3 modules.

    No.

    They go through C2 and M1 much slower at my sixth form, as the stuff in them are pretty important to understand. That said, I'm over 2/3rds through both and should be nearly done by Easter.

    That's crazy, what grades did you get for GCSE? Also what revision techniques do you use (I'm curious)? I imagine you naturally have a really good memory!!
