Confused about revisingWatch
Don't revise on the first day, just start consolidating notes from the beginning and stay on top of your work. If you start revising from day one you'll burn yourself out and won't enjoy college. Just revise 3 weeks in advance for all mocks and then start revising whenever you feel comfortable for AS/end of year exams. If you consolidate your notes and revise for mocks properly, you'll find by the time your AS/EOYS roll round you'll be mostly prepared, only having to memorise and do past papers.

When should I start revising as today I started year 12. I haven't got enough resources provided yet. I'm stressing cos I don't know what to revise as most people said revise on the first day.
I wouldn't start revising for another few months. If you are desperate to start, just read over the notes briefly.
After each lesson I would also go through and make a list of key words (I did this for all of my subjects apart from maths) because I found that having a glossary of the most important bits was really useful when revising for long answer science questions and RS essays.
For maths I would write down two examples for each new method that we learnt in a workbook I kept just for these examples. I would write steps for the method and annotate them to show exactly how to do something. This was probably the most useful thing I have ever done and it was great to read through in registration or when I was going home on the train because the methods didn't take long to read through. I used to write these up as soon as I could after lessons (in free periods, at lunch, on the train home) so that I wouldn't forget anything important.
2. Finish topic and consolidate notes into a few page of notes
3. Do exam questions on the topic
4. (optional) Research further into the topic. For example, in A Level Maths, you do not need to know why the differentiation rules are, as they are; however, understanding where and how these rules are derived can really help you understand the topic of differentiation and allows you to think more open minded
5. Ask teachers for help
6. Continue to keep on top of work
