Hmm there like end of the last semester exams if that makes sense? When you get examined on everything you've learnt in that year of study.

at my high skool and in college we worked by semesters. so everything from september-december was tested in december, then in january you start over and everything from january to may is tested in may. so, we never really have to go further than 5 months back. or at least i never had too.

I have my first (and only!) exam a week tomorrow but I haven't even started revision yet. This could be interesting.

I'm so glad I only have the one though, this time last year I had 4!

Yup AS-Levels are approaching for me. 12 exams or so starting from 21st May ending about 18th June.

Depends on the subject but I normally revise by making detailed notes, doing past questions and reviewing end-of-topic exams from through the school year. I sometimes listen to peaceful music while I do it others my mind can wonder and start thinking about other things.

12? That seems like a lot!

What sort of subjects? I never revised for GCSE's, AS or A2's although in hindsight I should've.

My last term exams will begin in 17 days... then my pre-university year(4th year of highschool you may call it) will be over! but wait... I have a hell important exam 2 months later, it covers all books of highschool, has 270 questions from everything... all at once :no:

so, my D-Day begins after this big exam :D

When studying, I prefer a silent room, my own room nearly satisfies this condition.
