    Hey there,
    WOW what a lot of exams
    First step- Prioritise revision to exam date
    So say first exam is RE 1 and is the followed by computing the day after make sure that revision for RE 1 is done before computing

    2nd Step- Revise in 30-45 min blocks with a 15 min break
    Reason is that your brain will absorb more information

    3rd step- PPQ are YOUR FRIEND
    Its all well and good to know the info but when it comes to the exam you need to know how to answer the question- it can expose gaps in your knowledge that you need to revise and use the Mark schemes

    4th Step
    Try and revise whenever you can
    Bring flashcards with you on the way home from school or whenever you have an appointment REALLY works

    5th Step
    Track your progress
    There are certain subjects you are better at than others so concentrate revision on the weaker ones. Track your revision and make out a revision timetable or to do list. Tick off the topics as you complete them

    Good Luck! Don't worry we have all been there with looming exams. I also had about 23 exams in a month and a bit. You'll survive but map out some free time as well you will really appreciate it
