Hey,

So throughout sixth form, I haven't really been the best with keeping up with my revision. However, I did improve drastically in year 13. Now my problem is revision for my mocks in January. I have my Year 13 content down, but I have basically forgotten more than half of my year 12 content. I don't know how I am supposed to revise all of the year 12 content without ignoring the topics for Year 13 in a month.

Does anyone have any advice?

don't put too much pressure on yourself to do amazingly in mocks, just try and do the best you can. have your teachers told you what will be covered on the mocks? if you've most of the year 13 content down and it's fresh in your memory perhaps most of your revision during the holidays can be covering the year 12 content. it's good you've improved though in year 13, that's a positive sign :yep:
practice papers are good for identifying the gaps in your knowledge.
obviously don't completely ignore the year 13 topics but do them less if you've covered them already in revision.

so attempt them without doing any prior revision, then mark them and make a note of the questions you didn't get right and the topic they come under. then revise these topics and attempt more papers.

Ummm, i would just do an AS paper without doing any prior revision of year 12 content. Mark it and see wer u lost marks. That way u can focus on those specific areas rather than all the AS content thus allowing u to use some time to revise year 13 content as well
