Not enough time to revise, please help? watch

    • Thread Starter


    I have about six weeks until mocks begin but I have so much subject content to revise. It takes me forever to just write out notes for one topic because I just don't have enough time on top of homework/controlled assessment, so it usually takes me over the span of a few days, if I kept at it, to finish revision notes on a topic. I have some notes already made by the way but there is so much more content I have not covered.

    What advice can you guys give me to revise and get everything covered in six weeks for the exams? Thank you very much.

    6 weeks? I have 1 and a half weeks till my mocks and I've barely made a start to my revision, you'll be fine.
    I'd recommend doing past paper questions that link to your topics and doing exam questions for english to hand to your teachers.
    If notes are too time-consuming, I don't really advise you to make them but it's your choice I suppose

    And make notes on the topics you haven't done well on judging by the questions.

    Thank you very much, past papers should be very helpful

    Everyone's in the same boat. I remember when my friends and I used to constantly wish we could just have another year to get all our notes done. I didn't even get half my notes done for most of my subjects by the end of it, but as long as you do loads of practice questions you'll be fine. No one's prepared for mocks so don't stress about them too much. You have plenty of time for the real thing.
