    AND I AM ABSOLUTELY BRICKING IT!!!!!

    I HAVEN'T STARTED MY REVISION (I DO ART, MATHS, HISTORY AND ENGLISH)

    I'm planning to learn my content until 2 weeks before the exam, then start doing past papers.

    Can I still do well?

    If you make a good start on your revision now and stick at it, you should still be able to get good grades

    You can do well depending on how hard you worked through the year. I started revising for my AS and A2 around 2 weeks before my exams started but did a solid 12-16 hours revision a day so managed to cover everything, do every question I could find and I did well! Start now!

    Why haven't you started revising yet? :curious: Maybe in order to begin you need to be a little scared.

    *continues screaming*

    ..

    In all seriousness, I'm sure if you start + fully focus now then you'll be perfectly fine. You've still got time, just stop wasting it and yes, you will hopefully do great. :five:

    honestly, two weeks just before before the exam may be a tad bit late - i would say to finish learning all your content a month before your first exam :-)

    it's managable!! wake up early and start revision rather than continuing after midnight as you're more alert.
    we take two of the same subjects which is maths and history

    so for maths i would recommend learning most of the content (C1 + C2 + S1) a month before and from there just do past papers and for history go through the syllabus and don't make detailed notes.... yes i know that sounds weird but KEY POINTS stick into your head rather than looooooong paragraphs. I would also recommend learning the structure of how to write an answer

    good luck!! may the odds be ever in your favour :-)

    I do AQA history!! do you? I don't learn by making notes, I can only memorise the text book. Which i've done for one of the books and i did half of the other, so when people say a topic i instantly get reminded of what i memorised.
    i'm starting tomorrow with my maths revision. wish me luck

    Last year I revised for probably around 4 days (very bad revision, no past papers, just memorising) before my history exam and ended up with a C in both exams (DO NOT DO THAT, I'M AN IDIOT! I let myself become ridiculously stressed and that is why I'm re-sitting this year XD). But if 4 days was enough to get a C and you have more time than that, so I promise you can get a very good grade. Just focus hard and work you socks off.
