It depends how effective your studying methods are. Plan and prioritise your topics to cover the ones you are least familiar with first and then if you are pushed for time by the end, at least you'll have covered the trickier/more unfamiliar areas first

Good luck!

Hi there abz4321

As brainzistheword says, it depends on how effective your revision technique is. I've just posted about the SMART revision technique on another post, but its relevant here too.

It's easier to revise if you revise SMART not long.


o Set yourself goals.
o Make study techniques that promote greater results.
o Ask for help.
o Reward yourself for progress.
o Take a Break.

The important thing I found was to discover what type of learner I was (remember or Google VARK to discover this). Once I knew this, I could implement the best type of revision for me. Revision really is an individual thing.

Has your university said they'll be running revision lectures? They normally give you an idea of areas to study.

True, And studies say that optimal strategy, time-wise is: 45 mins study, then 15 mins break, in any one hour.
