    To be honest, it depends how high your goals are. Someone who is aiming to get 3 A*s would have been preparing since the start of the year, whilst someone aiming to get 3 C's would start 1 month before the exam, if that.

    I started making revision notes from the start and started reading through them from about end of jan. I began revising proper from march as if I started too early I would have got tired by may/June. But I'd say start as soon as you think you should but don't leave it till easter... that's too late in my opinion if you want good grades. Hope this helped x

    You should start revising as early as you can. The earlier the better, this way you remember things better and having the time to understand. Cramming everything 1 month before is just going to be stress as you skim through past papers and trying to remember everything word by word. You want to be comfortable with the subject at least 1 month before the exam to be confident and reduce the stress.

    I've been consolidating content from day one, but I started more in November (mocks) and now I'm stepping it up a bit more. I think it depends on you, but for me the earlier the better. I like to be prepared and have content revised so that I can go back to things I don't understand and focus on past papers towards exam time. There is nothing worse than rushing to make revision materials because you didn't prepare early enough. February is where you want to start revising properly.
