In your opinion, when is it too late to start revising? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Teachers always say "Start revising in January". Do you agree? Should it be later or earlier?

    I'm hoping later because I haven't started 😞 help me

    hmm, I believe it's better to start earlier but there's plenty of time even like 2-3 months before to cover everything easily.
    Never too late!

    There is no such thing as too late. Any revision is still useful, but starting earlier gets more revision done.

    It depends on your subjects and what sort of reviser you are. I started hard core in January, and I have been doing revision consistently since I started college. It works best for me to work over longer periods of time as I can be methodical in my revision and can take times to actually understand things. I would say starting mid April would be a bad idea. You're not leaving yourself enough time to understand and take time with your revision, but any revision is better than none. Some people are just deadline junkies and like to leave everything till last minute as they're more motivated that way, prefer working under pressure or find starting early isn't effective because of their memory or procrastination. Personally, that makes me anxious. Being prepared is the most important thing.
