    Long story short, did my GCSE's and did great; go into A Level's and fail my mocks due to no revision (me thinking i'd at least pass). I always get revision done enough a few days before the real exams however I feel the deph, usually higher grade boundaries and harsh march schemes of A levels wont make this possible. What's your advice for revising and for eradicating procrastination?

    Rest are A2's.



    How many past papers did you do? I found that learning to answer the questions in the way they want, is just as important as the knowledge itself. I didn't do Chem, but in Physics and Bio, they wanted descriptions in a very particular way using the right keywords as well as correct theory.
