    This last weekend I've done hardly anything. I have OCR sources paper for History, Physics 3 and Geography Human, and all I've done is highlight sections in my Geo textbook, write out notes from Bitesize for History and Geography, have a go at half a Geography paper, and go on SAM Learning/textbook work for Physics. Will working all day Monday and Tuesday compensate, do you think? And it does sound like I've done alot from reading back, but seriously, most of that's been done whilst distracted or not thinking properly.

    Yes, working all day Monday and Tuesday should make up for it. I haven't done any revision this weekend either, I think we're all just getting really lethargic as we've sat so many exams already. Try and work a lot over the next two days, and remember that this will all be worth it when you open your results in August.

    I have those exams next week (and P2). I haven't started revising for history/geog yet and won't do geog till the night before (mines a skill paper, not human). I only started physics today, and I know nothing. You'll be fine.

    I did the same the week and weekend before my big week with 2 exams a day, I did nothing and it really made me stressed out the day before because I crammed loads ... and basically everything I revised for geography didn't come up, so in the exam I had all this useless knowledge going round in my head, which really hindered me! But I think as long as you revise a lot on Monday and Tuesday it should be okay, are the exams on the same day? If not then you can spend a lot of time on the subject that day.
    I also have History & Physics on Wednesday, then French Writing on Thursday, I too have not revised much, I revised History a fair amount today but I clearly haven't taken it in because I've forgot half of it! I feel ready for the summer holidays, and can't be bothered to revise anymore, and I'm pretty worried about how I did in my exams last week :s I just want my results already!
    But I'm sure you'll be fine, it sounds really boring I know, but dedicate Mond & Tuesd for revision, and don't turn the computer on (unless you need it for revision), that really stops me being distracted!

    Plenty of people about now feel like they haven't done enough work. It's quite standard.

    I did quite a lot over Easter and before exams started, but it's just gone. I shouldn't have problems with the source paper in terms of knowledge as its not got a great deal of content, but my exam techniques lacking. How do you analyse 7 or 8 sources at once without missing something out, considering it's 1 hour 30 minutes and you get 6 other questions?!

    I think everyone is tired/exhausted at this stage. As someone said above, I revised through easter, did nothing after that, then started revising again during half term. I find it hard to get motivation so my plan is for today and tommorow, that I'll wake up at 10am and stay in my room until 10 pm; surely I'll have done something by then, eh?

    Same. An invitation to the beach yesterday was more appealing than History. I bet the weather turns crap after our exams are done too, like last year.

    I'm planning on revising today & tomorrow, for History & Physics on Wed then French & Geography on Thurs. Done a tiny bit of revision a few weeks ago on the Liberal Reforms and Agriculture, then a bit of Physics on Saturday night. Now I'm going to back away from the computer and bury my head in a History textbook.

    Good luck to everyone trying to revise.
