As you may know, many schools have scrapped AS exams. It's great for those wanting a 'year off', but not so great for anxious people like myself! We have mock AS exams in summer, from which our predicted grades will be obtained, but I'm not sure when to properly start revising.

If I start now, I'll be too over-prepared and the content will become monotonous, but I don't want to start too late!

Let me know if you're in the same situation, and what you're doing about it! Thank you.

Better than feeling under prepared and stressed out.

Depends on who you are. Some people like to space things out. Some people like a bit of pressure and would get exhausted if they revise from now to July.

When revising for my GCSEs, I started intense revision from the Easter holidays. I will probably start looking back at old topics during Easter (I have been making revision resources as the year progresses). Thank you!

Start when the Easter holidays begin.

That's the best time to revise without burning out and being exhausted.
