    My first exam (Religious Studies) is on the 16th May. I don't see the point of revising now for anything. There's like 15 days left!

    Surely no one is in the same boat as me?

    You can do loads in 2 weeks. Youve spent nearly 2 years to get to this point a few weeks of hard work isnt going to hurt you. It just sounds liek an excuse and fiving in. take responsibility and fight for your future. At least try your best for goodness sake or get ready for resits or going through life without qualifications. You need 5 plus Maths and English.

    Final year at university and just started studying for my modules earlier this week.

    And my first exam is on 9th May. I know plenty in the same situation as me.

    Go through your text book once and then just focus on practise questions and past papers.

    15 days is more than enough, just get on with it.

    Good luck.

    I'm doing last minute revision for an exam I have in 2 days. imo some revision is always better then none and 2 weeks is a decent amount of time if you take it seriously

    There is a point in revising. So man up and start revising now! For GCSE's you only need a few days of effective revision to do well. Find the quickest way in which learn information. This can be by drawing mind maps, posters, listening to videos etc. Once you have figured that out revise everything using your chosen method. At the same time do past papers and memorise the answers from the mark schemes. You are still not too late, you can do this!

    Why on earth would you think there's no point revising? 15 days of revising >>>>>> no revision at all? Common sense there. Do as much as you can and if you can selectively revise do that too.

    It is definitely worth revising! Even just 5-30 minutes when you can. I'm the same, i've been putting off my revision for RE as well. The main things you have to remember are quotes and what certain Christians believe on the topic you are being asked about. It'll really help

    It's not that too late to revise, you still have time to revise! Trust me, just make a few notes on a topic that you find it hard. When you feel confident about all topics then go for past papers. Past papers are really important for you to know exam-style questions so just practice, practice and practice! I hope this helps
