    In my school, I'm known to be quite a 'smart' and 'intelligent' student due to my good AS grades (AAA) and GCSE grades (4A*'s 6A's).
    But, the thing that is eating at me is I HAVE NOT STARTED REVISING PROPERLY FOR MY A-LEVEL EXAMS!

    I don't know what to do and where to begin. I would have started earlier but I was facing some family probems whilst also having to
    go through anxiety, depression, nausea and extreme lonliness.

    For my course at university I need to get AAA in Biology, Chemistry and Geography. But, I would be so happy if I got an A* in one of them.

    What do I do? Where do I start? I have exactly 3 months before my first A-level exam.

    What timetables did you all make to help you revise? Have any of you revised 3 months before and still did well.

    Oh, and I still have SO much of my geography coursework left to do.

    At this point you should know realistically which one you can an A* in, I need AAA but I’m on track for an A* in maths with just some work needed on C4. Like at this point you should be on track for it and know what you need to do to get there.

    I don’t follow a timetable, I like giving myself deadlines, so I look at what needs doing and set a time and date for when it has to be completed. So instead of mapping out when to do 3 hours of chemistry set a deadline for when you should complete those 3 hours, you can do it in an organised fashion or if you’re like me, do it unorganised. E.g set so many deadlines you find yourself in choas, I find I’m super productive and efficient when I know I have a chaotic schedule ahead.

    You need to revise and finish the content ASAP then start doing non-stop exam practice

    I am doing A level computer science, maths, physics, and chemistry. I started revising during the Christmas and I felt like I had an advantage when answering exam questions in lessons over my classmates.

    •I made my own revision table but pointing out what I was weak at, the weakest subject I revised more often. I suggest that you revise for a subject which you are not confident at (obviously).

    •If you really want the A* then you should make your day and night as one and just sit down at a quiet place and revise for at least 4 or 8 hours a day.

    •Sometimes you figure out the weakness and you can gain your confidence back on the subject and officially be ready for the exams mentally.

    It's doable then; try and work regularly for a few hours at least until your exama
