So for example,is it starting exam revision to late or?

I'd say my biggest regret was not covering the whole subject for some of my revision as much as other areas - for my Chemistry exams, a lot of the questions were on areas I hadn't revised as much, and the parts I'd spend loads of time on didn't come up :lol:

revision now is too late but some is better than none
ideally you should've started with 4 hours a day quality time doing revision since January

biggest regret is that i didn't revise enough

My biggest regret is that I focused too much on content and not enough on exam technique - I didn't really realise it's just about playing a game.

My biggest regret is copying information from textbooks for revision and not doing past papers properly.

Not taking enough breaks because I thought they were 'detrimental to my A*s'.

Not taking my exams seriously and therefore not revising properly and procrastinating a lot.

  1. Learn to say “no” more often to things that you’d like to do but don’t really have time for.
  2. Use social networks for silly purposes less frequently.
  3. Watch out for the thieves of time: TV, the Internet, boring friends, cell phones, games, etc.
  4. Have a set time to sleep and wake up—and sleep for at least seven hours. A good night’s sleep is the secret of high productivity during the day.
  5. Plan what you will do in advance. Planning saves time.
  6. Don’t bite off more than you can chew, finding more and more things to do while other more important ones are being delayed. Write down your ideas in a file entitled “maybe in the future”. Don’t start a new project until you finish the one you’re working on.
  7. If you’ve reached your time limit, let the important people in your life know that you can no longer accept new projects and responsibilities unless you complete or stop doing something else.
  8. Take time off to regain energy and recover mentally. Once a week, even if it’s just for a few hours.
  9. Make time for the most important person in your life. Once a week, even if it’s just for a few hours.
