    Hi, I have 3 AS resit exams in May which i'm ready-ish for and the rest of my exams in June. I'm aiming for A*AA minimum (uni offer)... but trying for 3A* (Maths, Chemistry and English Literature). I have paid attention throughout the year and done some work and revised on and off. But serious revision hasn't started until now (I have one week of easter hols left)

    Do I still have time to pull up my grades?

    Of Course! If you are willing to put in the work constantly at a full speed standard rather than taking a more relaxed approach. Anything is possible if you simply have the willpower.

    If you are willing to put in 10-12 hours of efficient revision every single day next week, do you really think you don't have enough time? Ofcourse you dooooo!!!!!! EFFICIENT REVISION THOUGH!

    10-12 hours
    I really doubt whether it is possible to stay focused for that long (even with breaks) but I mean dang if people do that then go for it I guess? xD I only say that because yesterday I did around 5 hours and I was dead by the end of it so...I don't know haha.

    Lol it's certainly possible, especially if you now you are :dolphin::dolphin::dolphin::dolphin:ed, also with really efficient timed breaks (not internet breaks, but walking outside or drinking water and laying down etc). Also Pomodoro technique is great!

    If your deeply behind, there really is no other choice is there? anyway my point is, if OP works her socks of all of next week, she will be able to catch up. No reason to feel negative just yet.
