Is it bad that I haven't revised for my a levels so far? Watch

    I haven't done work outside of sixth form unless it was for HW. I have done work for one of my a levels , a tiny bit for the other and absolutely 0 for the last one ( I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing). If I start now, can I get ABC/B this year?

    I'm starting tomorrow since I have a day off.

    How many hours should I do on each subject?

    Think of it like Smoking, is it bad that someone smoked in the past (of course it is) but the sooner they stop the better it is for them, they may still have some problems but the severity of it will be lowered the earlier they stop.

    Same with revision, yh sure you may have lost some revision time and you may regret it, but the sooner you start now, the better your final result is going to get.

    So revise as much as possible, still keeping safe and healthy and calm; you'll do the best you can!

    Hope I have helped
    Good luck and God Bless

    Also, I don't know which year you're in. Are you a first year? If so, it should be a lot easier for you!
    I am but one of my a levels are super hard to understand and there's a lot of work so it's not as easy it sounds for me

    That was amazing! It did help

    No but you don't understand . I got 5 B-C grades at gcse because I never revised and wasted a whole year of year 12 so I'm just so afraid of failing!! People say GCSEs are nothing compared to A levels and that just makes me believe I'm dumb.

    first step is to calm down and do some revision every day..every drop in the sea counts...as long as you stay calm and try your best and try your maximum knowing you cant do anymore ...you will do the best

    and the fact you know you didnt revise for your GCSEs and still passed and got good grades show you that if you do revise you will surely get the best grades.

    So leave the stress to someone else...you work hard gurl and revise!!

    Despite what many on TSR say, you don't need to start revising this early. I started my A2 revision around Easter and got A*A*A. A-Levels are not as hard as TSR hypes them up to be.
    What subjects? Well done!

    Depends how well you're doing right now. If you're regularly achieving the grades you want in class tests and work, you're fine. If you're underachieving though, you need to step it up. Different people need different amounts of work - my teachers say 4-5 hours per week per subject (and I'm a first year!), but I can tell you that nobody I know does more than half that.

    Remember that it's easy to burn yourself out. Do your revision little and often to try to keep on top of everything you've learned so far. But don't got all-out just yet.

    I am under achieving in 2 of my a levels so I guess I do need to step it up. Thanks
