    when to start revising?should i expect to find things difficult now people in my class seem to not be struggling?!

    we have already done one set of trial exams and apart from geography i feel like i flopped the other two.

    I would start revising when you have mocks, my school does mocks right after christmas so in my AS year i started revising in the christmas holiday, mostly just making revision resources, mind maps, flashcards etc then properly revising for actual exams a few weeks before the easter holiday!

    I've been revising everyday since 6th Form started, however this is mostly to consolidate stuff that I covered in that day. I would only start revising for my tests using those notes like 3 or so weeks before it happens.
