    Not done any revision for proper exams yet, only for various tests/mocks we're having. Like I have a Chemistry Module 3 mock tomorrow . Which I need to revise for more, but y'know. Gonna start real revision at Easter methinks.

    I'm not sure really, I know I need to get my History and Economics coursework done. For History I will need to get 7 marks over the A boundary to get an A overall and 3 for Economics. With French, I'm quite uncertain and most worried about that one!
    Have already finished the History course tho so am confident that I will be well prepared by June and am going to start properly revising in the Easter hols. Last year I left it waaay to late and regretted it big time!

    Well, I started revisining about 2 weeks ago, however, due to distactions ans so on.... my revison has been interuppted.

    Nonetheless, I hvae 2 mocks next week, soI'll probs pick it up again from the weekend and try to continue it untill May/June.

    What's more, I have to start my revision so early, as I have 8 exams before study leave at my college, wiht 3 during it !!! I have no idea why college selected such a stupid time to study leave

    Does anyone else find that they spend loads of time planning the revision they're gonna do just to avoid actually doing it?
