    I 'revised' the material every so often by going over the textbooks, even when I was studying the later parts of the unit, just to refresh on it and store it in long term memory. Proper revision, past papers etc started in early April for May/June exams

    Hours per day varied, maybe 1-2 on a weekday (although some days I didn't bother) and 3-4 on a weekend day, mostly spent on maths :lol:

    Btw don't let this scare you, i just suck at learning .__.

    It's better to work smart than long hours. Just turns out to do some quality revision you just need quite a bit of time

    Also if you put the work in and you know it yourself if you have or not then you will get the grades.

    If you don't "have time" then remember if you really want something then you'll "make time" for it.

    1. We had mocks in late March to late April so I started properly revising in mid February. That said I, for biology and chemistry, would make notes on the topics we covered in the lesson the same day. Around 2-3 hours of that per day.

    2. 2-3 hours a day making notes throughout the year. Each person takes a different amount of time to learn and understand concepts so instead of saying "I'm going to work for 5 hours today" just work through topics one by one.

    4. Yes
