    Lol no, I got an E in one of my mocks two weeks before my AS exam and came out with a B and I barely revised before then.

    Don't give up! I felt the exact same way as you did last year and I know it's hard but you really just need to try your best. Just think, in 5 months this will all be over and you'll have a 2 month summer to look forward to

    Revising 5 months before an exam is a little risky in my opinion, but it all depends on how much you have to do. If you're on top of all your work then I wouldn't recommend doing ''proper'' revision now as chances are you're just going to burn out and not want to revise when it actually matters. Right now I would just focus on preparing all of your revision material (if you haven't already) and slowly go through some things that you're not 100% confident on. I, along with the majority of my friends, didn't start revising until March/April and it all turned out ok

    Good luck! You'll be fine.

    5 months is so much time lmao. I started making my flashcards for GCSE around this time, and honestly crammed for some exams and still came out with great grades lol.
