    Hi, I'm going to be doing AS level mock exams in January. When is it best to start revising for these exams, and does anyone have any tips?
    Thank you

    i would say start some revision during half term (like 2-3 hrs a day ) but only start proper revision in nov/dez holidays. after this i revised constantly until the real exams and ended up with 2A's and an A* in maths (took it early)

    make sure you revise properly for the mocks as you will find this really beneficial for the real exams

    Hey, I feel that you could probably start now with little revision here and there rather than a month before cramming up all the content at once.

    I got into the habit after school each day, I would recap everything I did at school and thoroughly go over it and understand it before I move on. Whenever there was free periods, I went to do my homework, so I had more time at home to study. After my revision for the day is done, I relax then.

    Try not to leave something until the very end, because it wouldn't help the problem. If you don't get a topic, ask. Don't be worried or afraid if the teacher is going to be judgemental, because the teacher is here to help you in any way.
