    Same as I did! Though, the only practical work I did was for the investigation as I wasn't actually in school most the time What exam boards do you do? Try not to stress, I promise it'll all click into place in time!
    I hope so because for the effort I put in, it doesn't seem to ever pay off!
    I do AQA for Biology, OCR A for Chemistry & Edexcel for Maths. What grades you getting?

    Take a breather for a day or two - total relaxation. Then start yourself a diary. Time can run away very fast when you're not completely sure where you're going. Planning as much as possible really can maximise your time at an amazing rate.

    It does pay off I finished last year, on a gap year atm I had BBB. But I did OCR B Chem. Have you got a CGP revision guide for biology? It was a total saviour for me, and I know I would not have done so well if not for that; it has a little bit of added detail in places, but I found that made it all make a little more sense.

    Maths, just do as many past paper questions as you can, the exams seem to be designed to confuse you. But don't panic about it, practice makes perfect when it comes to that

    For chem, there's a salters OCR revision guide that is really good, in that it puts everything in a logical order... I think theres one for OCR A as weall as B, but this combined with another CGP revision guide was great

    Also, I failed every mock I ever did. So if this happened to you, don't panic Hope this is a little reassuring!

    Thanks for the kind words & advice! Sometimes, I feel like it's just too late but it isn't as I have two months which is perfect time to really cover everything, it's just down to nerves but also due to academic losses from previous examinations because I never get A grades that I work for.

    Nothing better than liking and truly understand it! Memorising can be a bit of a curse imo.

    Plan accordingly. You know you can do it. Just do it!

    Nerves will only ever have a negative effect. What's the point? There isn't one.

    I promise it's not too late ok? I missed all my mechanics lessons for maths, and the night before the exam my friend gave me a "mechanics crash course", and i managed to get an A from that... SO if you are determined enough to do well, you can. Nerves... have you tried rescue remedy I swear it works. Are you doing any re-sits? Or just concentrating on the last lot? Like morris said... take a good break to totally relax then start again. Being able to unwind is really important.

    I'm a very Type-A person But I do agree, stress isn't good and I experienced a burn out last year so avoided one this year but it's all become a little too relax

    That's really good! Well done on your score! I always feel like there's not enough time because we just rush through things in school without taking time with it.
