Year 13 here! If you have mocks in December, start revising soon (next couple of weeks) but if you don't, as a rough guide (depends what your're aiming for and how hard you find each subject) start revising about 6-8 weeks before mocks. Don't intensely revise do maybe 1h of revision (WITH BREAKS!!) on top of any hw you have and then revise more intensely on the weekend. Playing time isn't an issue, it's what you do when you're not playing! For the real things, I started revising 10 weeks before. Don't burn yourself out -you need down time.

No problem

One more thing make sure to know which exam board is preferred and have a rough idea of the specification too.

Playing isn’t a bad thing- but it could be good to think about it as something you have to earn.

If you’re aiming for top grades, it’s really important to start you revision early and get into a good routine. I’d do at least 2 hours’ work (homework and revision) on a school night and 4 hours over the weekend.

You should only play after you’ve done the amount of work you’ve set yourself.
