    Hey, did you already have your revision notes made before hand in the year? Or did you make it as you went along whilst doing past papers questions?

    when you said 1-2 hours a week , is that per subject?
    Nope, that was overall, although it wasn't evenly split between each subejct, I spent more time on the subjects that I was struggling with.

    That sucks... my best overall tips are in the post, but other than that I don't think there's much more I can suggest as I didn't take English

    I made rough notes throughout the year and then redid them from scratch closer to exam period.

    These are such great tips! I am in Year 13 so I take my exams this year, and I love the website Quizlet for making flashcards! You can make your own and use sets that other people have made, and it gives you the option to use them in different ways, for example play games (for when you aren't so motivated) or answer using either the definition or the term etc. What I love most about it is the practicality of not having to carry around a huge amount of flashcards; you can also get an app on your phone which makes it so much easier to revise on the go! I have just been on holiday and I just downloaded my flashcards and did them on my flight

    Did you do AQA? That's what I did so I'm not sure if my advice would be very helpful for different exam boards.
