The Easter holidays and study leave are getting very close :ninja: How planned are you for the next few months before your exams?

Are you the one who's had their revision timetable planned months in advance, or do you not even know which exams you're taking? :lol: Share with others here how you plan on managing your time and whether you're prepared!

Have you started revising? I found revising for Maths really difficult to think of anything to do apart from past papers, so I only did late revision for it :lol:

I only did Maths up to AS, but I got an A I spent the majority of my time revising for my other subjects because they were a lot more fact based (like learning dates for History)

I've told myself since September that I'm not gonna make the same mistakes as last year regarding leaving revision too late...yet here we are in late March and I've still not started :getmecoat:

I have 6 exams this year - 3 for Maths and 3 for Further Maths. I never revised for Maths at GCSE so if I'm honest I don't really know how to! I'm sitting C1, C2, M1, FP1, D1 and D2 and I have textbooks for all except M1 so hopefully if I just do all of the exercises from those I'll be okay? I've already started doing C1 and M1 papers and I'm getting close to full marks in both of those which is good. Really need to work on Further Maths though, tend to get Ds in those...:erm:

I'm starting proper revision in the Easter holidays. I'm gonna make a schedule today while I have time off school and then hopefully actually stick to it for once We don't get study leave this year (:bawling:) so I need to get myself into gear and soon!!

I have 7 exams this year (8 if you include my oral exam, which is next Wednesday, because of course it is). :afraid: I've been revising for about an hour or two each day and plan to up the ante more now as the exam season approaches. I really need to get the grades to get where I want to go. I am so determined not to mess it all up like I did last year.

I found GCSE Maths quite easy, so I think I'd say I'm naturally ok at Maths - I would have struggled at A2

Practising papers and finding where you're making most of your mistakes is good, then when you have the topics that you struggle with the most you could do more practice exercises on them

No study leave for Year 12 :grumble:

We have to go to all of our lessons if we don't have an exam at that time, but I suspect we'll just be revising at that point anyway :dontknow:

I think doing past papers for each module rather than doing all of the textbook exercises will be more helpful.
However, it will be good to do textbook exercises on topics that you keep losing marks on in past papers.
Literally do as many past papers as you can!

I feel sorry for you not having study leave... I remember not having it in Year 11 and I was so annoyed because instead of being able to revise at home in peace, I had to sit in lessons where everyone was messing about and being distracting!!

I'm gonna try to do both if I'm honest! If I really start putting the work in I reckon it can be done, I'm just incredibly lazy :lol: And yeah that's a good idea, for extra practice I suppose. I will do! I already have a document to track all the papers that I do so I can be sure I've done them all

Oh no, I would've been so screwed without study leave last year - that's when I did the vast majority of my revision! :afraid: I'm not sure what I'll do this year, probably have to get myself into gear haha. That must have been awful for you in Year 11!

I have 9 exams this year (including a re-sit) and I've definitely started revision earlier.

But it doesn't seem like anything's sticking? Ho boy.
