    I'm studying biology, chemistry and maths. We have just finished unit one in both biology and maths. Should I start making notes now? I feel really overwhelmed at the amount of work I have to do and it's starting to stress me out to the point where I won't bother doing my homework to the last minute, let alone any revision. I just feel tired, stressed and quite demotivated.

    If anybody has any advice or tips to help, I'd be very grateful. Thanks.

    I don't think you're going to be able to absorb much information when you're feeling like that. Clear your head before you start your revision, otherwise it'll be a waste

    I'm going to start properly around February half term I think
    early enough to get a head start yet not so early as to get burnt out I'm thinking

    Take some time off (this holiday should have been it tbh) and start as soon as possible. You still have quite a lot of time so if you do a little everyday you won't feel 'burnt out' and will be much less stressed when exam season comes around. You're much more likely to feel 'burnt out' if you try to do lots of revision at once. You can never start revising too early.

    Don't revise too early or you'll burn out. That's the best advice I can give ANY student.

    You don't have to revise hard but you can always prepare in advance by making a list of past papers you need to go through/organise a book to use as your notes in the next few months or maybe look through some practice exam questions. It is never too early to start preparing (and yes, you need to make sure you don't 'peak' out like the others have hinted here)
