Never too late, every bit of revision you do will help you get a higher grade.

I've only just started revising, but it's never too late! Make sure you prioritise the parts you don't understand and go from there, and take regular breaks so you don't burn out.

Only time will tell, but each day you waste it becomes less and less likely.

Revise as every bit counts. Some people need to start revising from the start of the year to get A*s whilst others could start revising a few weeks before and get A*s 🎀

Not to late, get to it! Make sure its effective revising too, an hour of good revision can easily gain more than 3 hours of distracted revision. You can do it.

Quality over Quantity
If you can do 1-2 hours for each subject till exams in june then you should be good
Just change your mindset and believe you can do it, also STOP BEING LAZY

It's not so much about time- but your willpower and how much effort you put in Use these Easter holidays to revise properly! I've only started properly revising now, but then again my first exam is on the 5th June so I have 2 months left

5 weeks is enough to learn everything. I gave myself 2 months for AS, and I'm doing the same for A2. I learnt everything with two weeks to spare and only tended to do 15 mins a day in a single session. You can definitely do it all if you put your mind to it and make your study periods short bursts.

I did this too or didn't revise and I came out with mostly As and A*s. Please don't do this though, I suffered when I was doing AS as I was only learning how to revise properly then!! I'm glad you started a while ago, best of luck with your exams

it's not too late although it'll be a tiring 6-8 weeks. Tbh, I've only started proper revision this Easter but I've been pretty consistent throughout the year in most topics for my subjects.

One piece of advice however is to create a timetable for the next 4-5 weeks, specifying times and topics. This will be vital. Don't be afraid to change your timetable as well if you feel the need to as it is sometimes necessary. Also, concentrate on the most difficult topics first. Gl.

If you start now, you will probably do better than if you start next week.

If you'd started last week, you would probably do better than if you started now ... but that option is no longer available to you.

So, all in all, I'd say that your best remaining bet is probably to start revising now.

Mate that is plenty of time providing that you do actually start revising now, don't sweat it and get cracking!
