    Do I have enough time to get A*s in my exams?
    I'm an A/B student at the moment and have been panicking and regretting not having started earlier. My first exam is 16th April. I have just under a month.
    Any tips or websites, esp to help with chemistry???

    It's probably a bit late now. However, you can try to cram important topics in before May.

    It isn't too late as such.

    When planning my revision timetable, I was saying to myself 'Oh my ****ing god, I haven't got enough time' and that was about 6 weeks ago.

    When I actually started revising, I found I covered the content a lot quicker than I thought I would.

    For example, I have 6 geography topics to cover, 3 physical and 3 human (physical is before summer half term and human is after).

    I started revising for my physical, thinking I would have to spend 6 hours on each topic. In fact, I only needed 4 hours. That's 2 hours down. That may not seem like a lot but I predicted I would need 18 hours for physical but I only needed 12. So I basically had 6 hours to play around wit past papers.

    Although I just made it seem like a breeze, it's not. You need to plan a revision timetable tonight and put it in plan tomorrow. Otherwise regret will be coming around the corner very quickly.

    NO not late at all. Even if you do 2-3 hours a day from now it will be fine.

    Aha thanks man. Boosting my confidence! I feel like I can do it. I'm fine with maths, i do questions from a paper everyday, and i've used hegartymaths before and he really is good! English I'm definitely fine, it's mainly chemistry, physics unit 2, all AQA science. and the structure for my exam questions in all papers.
    I'm only worried about chem, physics, history, and maths tbh.
    obvs i am worried for the rest but im more confident for them
    & good luck to you too!!!!

    You're not late at all! Just do past papers of each subject everyday and you'll be on your way getting that A*. do at least 2 past papers everyday and prioritise your subjects according to difficulty. You could also do mind maps on each subject and see what areas you need to revise more on.

    everything you don't understand, note down as you're going through the content, then ask for help asap. It's surprising how much understanding that bit extra and gaining those extra 4 etc marks in an exam can make a difference to your overall grade!
    Work hard, but don't overdo it. Have time for breaks so that your brain can rest and be able to understand and remember the content better when you start again!

    Good luck and let us know how your exams go!
