    Your exam is in less than 2 months and you haven't started revising?

    honey, you have two months- now would be a good time to start revising. make notes, improve them and highlight key quotes.

    It's probably advisable to start now. If you burn out in 2 months then I think something might be wrong with how you study.

    I literally spent 2 weeks ? From 6 pm till 9 pm every couple days . I was naturally smart at English . If you’re struggling then do your revision non stop now ?

    For me, that's just cutting it too fine. I like to revise 4-5 months before an exam, especially for something as big as English.

    fair enough, why do you think that?

    I get stressed if I feel like I have a lot to do in not much time. So I like to plan out my time and pace myself, spend my time revising thoroughly as opposed to cramming in the last few weeks. I feel it is much more effective.
