    Anyone else starting A-levels this year finding that they aren't doing much at home. Homework is pretty much it unless there are upcoming tests. Anyone else also finding this for them? People say they are revising for the A-Levels now, but isn't it too early? Won't you forget? I'm just worrying because i'm hearing others on TSR go on and on about how much they were doing over half term, etc. Makes me guilty for not doing this myself. Anyone else the same?

    edit: I'm doing 4 A-Levels. Maths, FM, Comp Science, Physics.

    Nah I'm a bit like you - doing Physics, maths, further maths and biology. I've done a few revision cards on my laptop and a few extra notes but I'm just taking it as it comes atm. I do get a hell of a lot of maths homework though, but further maths so... that's to be expected.

    All I revise with for tests is the notes in class. Planning to get official specification book to revise from for later in the year though.

    Ayyy, we're doing the same A-level options. Don't you find that you have to make a lot of notes for Biology? Because that's definitively something I struggle with.

    For us, one of my teachers gets us to write the notes before the lesson basically as our homework then we go over the stuff we don't get in class. That teacher gives us notes as well so I'm very lucky! With my other teacher though yeah sometimes I struggle with note taking so I set aside one of my frees every week that's dedicated purely to those notes which is usually enough to get em done.

    I hardly do anything because there's not much to do.I have half term now but I've done nothing.
