    how about you get off tsr and revise then instead of talking about how you're going to revise, everyone here can say yes to you or give you a time of year, but that doesn't mean anything because unless actually start revising

    there's no set time to revise....

    just get your ass off here and do it for god's sake.

    If I were you I would just be reviewing your class notes instead of actually ‘revising’. If you’re in Year 12 you’re not going to sit your final exams until Summer 2019 so anything you revise now will just be forgotten by then

    Review your class notes and fill in the holes in your notes by comparing them against your course specifications (lessons missed, lessons where you or the teacher gave in 😁)
    In year 13 you’ll be building on this year’s knowledge at the same time as revising - it’s more important now to get a solid grasp of this year’s content so that you’re not scrambling next year when you’re expected to work harder AND revise. It’ll make next year’s learning easier and you’ll be far less rusty

    As a side note, your teachers will give you predicted grades at the end of this year - this is what universities first look at when considering you. The rule of thumb is that they only give you max 1 grade on what you’re currently attaining, so if you want to be predicted A*’s you need to have an ‘A grade’ grasp of your year 12 topics, plus the teacher needs to know how hard your trying so there’s no shame in letting them know what you want from them :P
    ^same with references, let the teachers know your ambitions and uni choices etc they’ll be far more understanding
