Hey TSR, I am currently 16days until my first National Exams, I've done some studying over the easter break however now it's finally dawned on me that these count for something, I'm feeling rather panicked. What should I do with the limit time I have left, I'm taking 9 subjects with 2 years of work and would say there aren't some sections I am struggling with, if you have any further questions that would help you to answer this questions I will be happy to answer as advice is urgent thank you xx

Focus on revising the subjects that need more attention and attempt practice papers for the subjects that you are confident with. Try not to worry too much, you need to use the time you have left to revise for your exams. Create a revision timetable and stick to it, don't overdo your revision and make sure you take breaks in between.

What about being in a position where you have loose/little knowledge of the content but want to practice past papers? Would doing it open-book, help?

Personally, I'm not a fan of it since recalling your knowledge from memory is better than looking it up in a book and writing the answers down. If you do some revision, then attempt a past paper, you'll find your weaknesses and then you can go off and revise those parts.

Yeah that's true, for a subject like Economics for example, what would be the quickest way to revise all of the topics within the syallabus especially given that time is fastly approaching to the exams?

Break down the topics you need to revise into chunks and create a revision timetable. Allocate blocks of time for each topic and leave yourself a couple of days to do some past papers. You could create a mind map, it works well with heavy subjects which involve a lot of in depth content. I did that for Psychology for A-Levels and it was really useful.
