    Re: plural

    Hi there,

    Sorry, I don't agree with you.
    revision is an uncountable noun according to Longman Dictionary,
    noun [U]
    She did no revision, but she still got a very high mark.

    Re: plural

    Hi

    According to Oxford Advanced Learner`s Dictionary of Current English [ A S Hornby with the assistance of A P Cowie and J Windsor Lewis] the word revision is both countable [ e.g. after two revisions] and uncountable.
