Didn't revise for my GCSE'S or AS', thinking I should revise this year as I need to get AAB to go to uni. Homework is still ridiculous though and extra curricular is through the roof. Could probably do two hours per day if hw stops and I cut back on extra stuff but looks like its not enough.....

I began revising for my Summer Exams (which are in the first week of June), last week. Even though it seems a while away, time goes so fast therefore I'd rather start now and take my revision slowly and calmly rather than rushing it the night before the exam and risking lowering my grades dramatically

I'm such a crammer. In fact, not even that, I guess I'm a shammer! When people say they do 9 hours revision, how do you fill the time? I can read the revision guide in much less!

I had a really bad revision techniques (or should I say, lack of them) throughout all the school years up until really when I started 3rd year at the university. Now studying for my final exams for my BSc - I have 7 exams, starting on 4th of May. I think before I had a lot of problem with just obsessing about exams and stressing about them - then I was told I suffer from severe anxiety disorder. Counselling helped me a lot with that and i could focus on actually just studying again, without all that stress. Obviously I still get stressed, exams are important, but it's not the end of the world if you do badly... Experienced that myself. But I wish someone's told me that earlier in life.

At the moment, I do 3 modules/subjects per day, usually for about 2-2,5 hours each If I'm at work, I do less obviously. Seems to be going well at the moment. I revise only until 6-7 pm, if possible. Then I either watch a movie or go swimming to unwind a bit.

Getting motivates is definitely the most difficult thing! I used to be really motivated for GCSE revision, but now in A2 and in AS last year I just can't get it into my head to revise. With doing 3 essay-based subjects (history, geography,classical civilisation) in each subject I get coursework, essays, research projects, posters e.t.c. for homework each week, with only a few days to do multiple tasks, I struggle to find the time to sleep nevermind revise :cry2::cry:

Does anyone have any good coping strategies on how to calm nerves down during exams?

That's just the pressure of exams for some people, smartest person I know pretty much crumbles under stress and performs poorly in exams, however in class, she's Einstein reincarnated, I'm possibly lucky and not really affected by exams however do take note I haven't sat exams since my GCSE's so my AS levels might be a whole different story
AS are you doing?

I find it so hard to revise in the school holidays. For some reason my brain just shuts down and I seem to forget everything I know and lose the ability to take any information in. I find it easy to revise during the school term as I am in that particular mindset however I struggle to find enough time. I get really frustrated with how I am, I know I should utilise my time during half term because they are such valuable windows for revision. But how can I when I can't discipline myself to be focused and motivated beforehand?

I try to do something everyday. It's normally about 6 hours worth but may spill into the 7. My biggest fault is time management as I do 5 AS levels and never know what to revise next.

If you go to the BBC Radio 1 website, there's a link if you scroll down the page about beating your revision enemies and there are some useful tips and resources on there which I found helpful.

Do your revise 9 hours a day? Or 9 hours over the whole holidays?

I am planning to start revision in the spring break holidays. I have done bits of revision throughout the year due to mock exams but most of the people I know have done this also so I don't feel like I am leaving it to the last minute even though teachers are saying we should have started revision by now

Damn - I nearly took bio but the sheer volume of material you have to learn is ridiculous.

Thank you - you too!
