Well my friend and I had a discussion about how long I revise (which is 8 hours on a weekend) and she said that isn’t effective revision instead she said “little and often”. The whole little and often thing doesn’t work for me but is she right? The reason why I revise for long hours but do effective revision in it is because I want to cover as much as possible

specifically for maths:
- do past papers, all the time. I did over 30.

specifically for languages:
- find the syllabus list of vocab and learn it, back to front, both from English to the language, and back again. Memorise answers for speaking exams.

I got an A*, 97% so definitely a 9. I used to be barely scraping an A*, so an 8 but I got to the point where I was finishing papers in half the time given and getting 95-100%

I got A* for maths, further maths and mandarin and A (which is the highest grade you can get for it) for additional maths. Got over 90% in all so definitely would translate to a 9.

First work out what your weakness is. Is it exam technique or is it knowledge. Definitely do past papers.

In maths and the 3 sciences,I revised for around 1 week (3 hours a day) at the end of year 10.Now I’m able to easily secure grade 9s in those subjects with minimal/no revision especially in maths as I average 78 marks per paper.
