I’m really worried that I’ve waited too long to start studying for my higher exams.

Last year I got 7 As and I had started studying roughly Easter time, and now I’m sitting 5 highers and I know that I can’t do that again. I got 1 A and 4 Bs in my prelims (not the best but I can still turn it around) and I’m aiming for 4 As and 1 B or 5 As (which i would be overjoyed to receive).

Have I left it too late?

EDIT: I’d like to add that I haven’t just been lazing around for the past 6 months, I have done work and I understand my courses, pay attention in class and turn in work on the deadline.

It's definitely not too late! Your prelim grades are really good, so you clearly have a solid start in terms of your knowledge and application of it. The work that you've done so far will definitely help and I think is enough to have done by this stage (there's not a lot of point in doing exam revision through the year, besides preparing for tests). There are still 2 months to go before the exams begin, so you have plenty of time to improve your grades to where you want them to be

Thank you, this is really reassuring and I feel much better!

similar to mine, maths and computing are the one you wanna start thinking about as they are tough.

i got at prelims (after getting all A's last year):
78%-math
76%-graphics
69%-physics
67%-computing
50%-English - English was bs as they didn't mark it properly(on purpose to scare us)

You dont need to start studying yet if you dont feel like it. Prelims mean nothing my mate failed 3 of his prelims got a C in two others and still got 4As, B. Give yourself however much time you feel like you need but anything more than a month is far too much studying IMO but of course it depends on how you feel about your subjects
