    If you’ve done your exams already, what are your tips and warnings? E.g. does late night cramming really work if it’s in moderation and only for an hour or two, or should I completely avoid it? And what are some of the best ways to revise? + how bad are exams really; is it worth me stressing as much as I am?

    1. do not late night cram i tried it and can't recall anything at all 2. I generally just read through text books and then answer exam style questions 3. yes, these exams are the foundations for your life, all 11 years of work have been spent up to this point.

    If you revise regularly and consistently there's no need to cram revise. The best way to revise in my opinion is to just do as many exam questions as you can, it gets you in the right mindset as to what the mark schemes are looking for. And tbh i remember exams seeming way scarier than they actually were, if you know your stuff you'll easily get at least an A - don't stress it

    I’ve done the same where I’ve revised instead of sleeping and couldn’t tell you half of it the next day. Thank you🙂

    I do try to but it seems like there’s never enough time in the day because obviously for the sake of your mental health you need to take some time out too, but if I do that then with 7 hours at school + however long I stay afterwards to get help from a teacher etc, and then chores at home as well as trying to have a social life - there’s hardly any time left. I’ve heard exam style questions and past papers are good methods in terms of making it stick in your head, thank you🙂
