Year 13, how do you plan on revising?

( By the way I'm studying OCR sociology, OCR history and AQA psychology, how would you revise for these subject or alevel in general?)
you're doing easy subjects, you have nothing to worry about.

it only gets serious when you throw a STEM subject into the mix

A method I'm using for this year is organizing my time. By this I mean that everything I do I tell myself that this is the amount of time I'm gonna spend on it and what day I'm gonna do it. So if its for example revision on Education - Sociology topic - then I'll write it in my planner with a note of revise for an hour or 2 (depends on you tho) on this day. Don't write what time you'll do it cause you never know when something may happen that'll interrupt your timetable but instead just say this thing should be done on Monday and only 30 min should be spent on it.

Another thing is using your free periods for revising yr 12 work and not chatting with your friends or wasting it on useless things - but if you're stressed then you can take a break :smile: On your timetable write down what subject you'll be doing on a certain free. If I give my timetable as an example than it'll be something like every Monday 1st lesson is a free = Psychology revision, every Monday 2nd lesson = Sociology revision, Thursday 5th and 6th lesson = personal statement and career and courses research etc.

Spend an hour every week on each subject going over yr 12 topics and 5 hours every week going over yr 13 topics (tests/ coursework/ homework)

Hope this helps and best of luck to you and everyone else :smile:

Be careful... easy to one person may not be easy to another! :smile: I do AQA history and the amount you have to learn is unreal, plus the exam is stressful because you have to write so much
Please don't say this, if people are struggling to revise with their subjects, don't put them down. History and psychology have tons of content. I haven't taken either but have plenty of friends who have and I have seen the size of the workload they have. They're A levels for a reason. please don't make them feel bad when all the A levels have their own challenges. :smile:
