I read somewhere, and they said you should start revising for an exam 6 weeks before the exam. :)

DEPENDS, if you've already learnt what you need to know for the exam, then you should start revsing, 1/2 an hour for each topic a day.

two month laters, you should increase this by an hour.

It depends, normaly i would would vary it for each subject for example 5-6 weeks in advance of sciences and maths depending on how good you are. I am rubbish at these so i leave more time for them. English  i would normally leave about 3-4 weeks before bcause you will have looked at the novels and plays and poems in detail (if thats what you are doing) whatever else ypu are doing i would do about 4-5 weeks in advance as thi gives you more time to revise and less time to cram which is always a bad idea. Alo do the revision techniques that work best for  you because then you will be able to revise more, more efetivly and then you won't be as stressed before the exams! Good Luck!!

NOW QUICK YOU DON'T HAVE TIME TO LOSE!!!!!

on a more serious note, I would start as soon as you can, depending on how well you know the subject... Try a few past papers, and if you don't do as well as you'd have liked, then get revising now... just don't leave it too late!

Good luck :D

6 weeks is way too late if you're doing A levels- you should be doing 5 hours per subject per week from mid october (by then you'll have covered your first topic)

as soon as possible, or revise your notes as you go along, because then you will find that you will have more knowledge or understanding on the subject before the exam.  this way you arent going to have to relearn all of your notes for that subject, and it would just make life  bit more easier than spending hours on end trying to get all that info stuck into your brain :)

depending on how much material you have to revise i would reccomend to start revising now without stressing yourself out, make sure you have lots of different techniques and maybe spend an hour or two each weekend up to the exam revising hopefully this should help ? :D
