    I've got my first exam on the 20th of May. I've not started any full blown revision, I've just been going over my notes every day in my frees.

    But when should I start properly revising?

    Thank you!

    Going over notes does count as revision btw. But if you aren't doing anything at home yet then that's a problem.

    Okay.

    I've been doing a lot of past papers for my subjects a couple of times a week at home. Is that enough? I would like a bit of direction so I know I'm doing the right thing.

    May I ask what your AS subjects are?

    I don't share any subjects with you so I won't be the greatest help.

    All I will say is that how you revise is down to you. For some subjects, you only need to read through notes and you will be able to absorb all the information you need. For others, you may need to practice exam questions. It all depends on how you yourself feel about the subject.

    Nows the time to prepare for the examination, you should be confident with content and be learning how to present that in the exam and ensure you understand the key topics by revisiting them here and there
