    Really? I think it's so useful! Like, I do german, so my exam's the last exam on the 27th -__- so it's just good to see that I have 20 whole days to revise for it (': just to see which exam's the closest and stuff :')
    I only have 8 exams left anyway, 2 of which are a joke.. Another 2 of which I am incompetent at revising for.. (English Lang&Lit), I don't realise how people can revise for them. How can you revise interpretation, extraction of language features/devices and how to put your opinion across? You either know how to do it, or you don't... But that's just my opinion!

    My last exams are on the 29th, Physics and FSMQ Maths..

    They can't be GCSE since GCSE exams end 27th June.

    Wait FSMQ Add Maths is 30th May. Is that what you mean? If so, that is crazy how your exams end in May!!!

    Yes mine end in May

    All I know is that FSMQ and Physics are on the same day, is it the 30th?

    So this is where exam timetables come in handy....
    That just means I have an extra days revision

    Ah I see I may have to read Of Mice and Men and Inspector Calls a couple of times, but that's it.

    If I'm perfectly honest, I couldn't tell you what exam board I am with for English! I detest the subject so much. Cannot wait to be rid of it...

    I had 12 Exams last year, I've had 8 this year already, and I have 8 left... So 28 in total. I will have 9.5 GCSE's, ICT OCR Qualification, Preparation for Work in life qualification (complete bull.), and an FSMQ.

    Super long summer but that doesn't mean I won't be working. I will be self teaching C3&4, and AS Phys/Chem/Bio

    Good luck with the self-teaching. I wouldn't know how to revise AS sciences though. Wouldn't have any resources and the specifications aren't anywhere near as detailed as GCSE.

    I used CGP Revision Books for all my GCSE revision, and even though they are only revision guides, I believe they cover ever topic thoroughly. CGP are also bringing some full 'Course Books' out for AS Biology and Chemistry this month. So they should help out a lot It won't be too difficult, as I enjoy Science a lot too.

    Well science is pretty easy. And it is annoying how a lot of people get away with not understanding something but just mindlessly learning the stuff about it in textbooks and revision guides.

    Although I doubt it hugely will be, I hope A-Level sciences will be a lot tougher, and hopefully be more interesting as well! I am sure it will still be a nice step up from GCSE though!

    Well that's the thing isn't it. Somebody can get good Science grades at GCSE, without a good knowledge of science concepts. All you have to do is learn a few sentences, and regurgitate them come exam day. The exams have the same questions every year, so once you learn a few sentences you're fine!

    I hope A-Level is a lot more interesting and complex than GCSE. GCSE is so basic and elementary it's un true. -.- A-Level will be quite a bit harder than GCSE, but I'm not worried about that
