    I have my AS exams(year 12) exams right around the corner and have done hardly any revision so far. I hope to get quite a lot done over Easter break.
    This may be helpful :
    DO : Create a list of goals that you wish to achieve by the end of the Easter holidays
    DO : Complete a past paper, pick out areas where you can improve and create a flash card for it. Few days later complete a question on this area again and see if you understand it now. Seeing this improvement can often motivate people.
    DO : Think about the reward ! Imagine exceeding all your target grades and getting onto your next course (sixth form, uni, apprenticeship etc)

    DO NOT : Read, highlight and copy out pages and pages from a textbook, this is passive revision and you will not remember it
    DO NOT : Sit there all Easter thinking about your exams (easier said than done, i know) as this will only worry you. Actually get started which is the hardest part about any revision.

    Remember, despite you having exams just weeks after you go back, take a break and give your mind a rest.
    Hope this helps,
    Lee
