    Basically I've procrastinated from revising over Easter and don't have proper revision notes for 1 of my subjects. What to do? I've also got no study leave so it's 6 school weeks and 1 week of half term.

    When you say you haven't done proper notes for one of your subjects, do you mean you have done notes for two and have one left, or that you haven't done notes for any single subject?

    tbh writing notes can be a form of revision e.g. memorising parts of the text and then writing it down by memory which will actively help you to recall and remember the info, atleast thats what im doing for sociology..

    People, relax. If your school doesn't have study leave so what? If you feel like school is of no use now, just don't come. They can't do anything about it. You will still be able to sit the exams. A lot can be done in 7 weeks. Breakdown all your courses and have checklist of the things that you need to do and prioritise. Go over your spec and then simply do questions.

    Don't procrastinate about what you should do etc. Sit the **** down, and just do it

    Instead of making notes you could buy a revision guide and constantly quiz yourself while going through it

    Bro are you kidding me. Only have to make half a subjects notes left. It all depends on how efficient you are at revising, but from a notes perspective you're fine. Granted, you do take biology, a mammoth of a subject, but I'm doing chem. What I do is go through book, write whats important, repeat, do questions. What I get wrong, go back and revise and then do more questions. If you do detailed notes - to learn from, I find it time wasting as you're summarising whats from the text book. I believe in just gettign the revision guide and do short summary notes. Don't copy etc.

    My parents won't let me stay ar home so I will have to make do. I can probably do 5-6hours in the evening when I get home if I start at 5 and end at 11. I also have 9 hours of frees a week (as my EPQ is done). I can also revise 8-10 hours( on each day) at the weekend. So max I have per weeks is 54 hours.

    Find a library near you. So it won't matter if they won't let you stay.
    It's not how long you revise for, but how effective you are.

    Ask not what your revision can do for you, but what you can do for your revision

    The school will call them if I'm not in. Trust me. Missing school is not an option.
