I'm in the middle of doing psych and sociology A2 (exams this summer) -any revision's moreorless the same with me and it's pretty fail-proof. Just find a room with no/little distractions and lay out all the notes from class you have then plan steps on the revision to summarise and remember it all. For example 1.) read through and highlight '...' 2.) key words of '...' in a big mind map 3.) summarise '...' in a word doc/written notes 4.) summarise '...' even further to post-its/cards 4.) exam practise questions on '...' By going through all the different stages on the same thing it really helps you understand it all and remember it. Usually it takes a while to get through and you'd end up spending a whole study day on just one subject.. in terms of breaks although others may say otherwise i always end up taking 2hour(max) breaks, the time is made up for since you'd end up taking ages completing all the steps you've set yourself anyway. It's worked for me so far- hope it's helpful :) And don't worry about it all- retakes are always annoying but if you revise well i'm sure you'll do great oh and always have food/coffee around(:
