Revision at Christmas

This year, my mocks are after Christmas. Great.

Instead of being able to relax during the lengthy Christmas break and indulge in copious amounts of chocolates and multiple viewings of Love Actually and Nativity, I shall be locked away in the dining room with my head down trying to memorise 209439480394 court cases for the Supreme Court unit of my Politics A Level.
