    Couldn't a lot of people just cram information a few days before the exams? We don't have that many exams close together and most we have a good idea what will come up (The topics on the exams e.g Medicine on a History Paper 1). Yes, people would likely be more confident if they revise for longer but people do get good grades by cramming. There isn't that much to learn for most papers.

    If it works for you then try it.

    I would rather maximise chances of getting good marks.

    There is learning the knowledge and being able to apply it.

    Well tbh just make sure you won't be too caught up about the topics that might come up. Sure, you have an IDEA but make sure you go over everything. If cramming works for you, then no one can really stop you.

    Good luck btw xxx
