How much did you revise for yours?Watch
Honest answers, unless you really did 'only start revising the day before and got 10 A*s'.
I didn't get 10 A*s though, I wasn't predicted 10 A*s and wasn't fussed about getting 10 A*s.
To be honest, sure revising will improve a grade dramatically, but the effort you put in throughout the year is much more important in my opinion.
I tried the same for my AS', but that really didn't work
For my weaker subjects I was doing like 9 hour cramming sessions a week before hand
I got away with a couple of As, majority Bs, a few Cs and a D (in ICT, because I didn't finish the coursework. Got an A in the exam).
Well, apart from the enforced revision in classes in the weeks leading up to the exam that is. No Extra-curricular revision.
Thus I ended up sunburnt rather than smart . To be honest revising is not my forte as I have a lack of concentration so honestly did little or no revision for any of my subjects (I honestly did 15minutes at the most for maths and came out with a B but now I like maths).
I really need to start learning how to revise.
The day before for 4 hours, English Literature and History
The day before for 2 hours, both exams: R.E.
About an hour or two for Single Science as I'd got a D in the mock
Only oral revision for French and German which was 2 months before
Nothing for English Language, Maths, Art (walked into the exam with no idea! ahahahhaah) and Stats
About 3 weeks hardcore revision as I was convinced I'd fail: Latin. [I was 3 marks off an A in the end.. everyone was astounded. I was actually APPALLING]
For history and RS (Christianity), I started revising a couple of weeks beforehand, but not every single day obvsly.
For textiles, no revision at all - same for the whole class.
For English language + literature, sciences, and RS (Islam) the night before.
For Maths, only had a weeks notice, so a couple of days before.
I regret not revising more, but oh well.
