1. Three weeks and 3 days for C2 learning?
In these last two weeks, I only managed to cover one chapter of Aqa C2 due to coursework of other subjects.

Do you think I have enough time left or should I withdraw myself from this exam?
2. Re: Three weeks and 3 days for C2 learning?
If you get balls deep in revision, it's possible.
3. Re: Three weeks and 3 days for C2 learning?
you only need a week to get 100, you've got three!
4. Re: Three weeks and 3 days for C2 learning?
There are 6 chapters, you can revise one chapter a day... That leaves you with 2 weeks and 4 days to do past papers. Plenty of time... seriously
5. Re: Three weeks and 3 days for C2 learning?
If you knuckle down tomorrow you could learn the whole module by night time. Then give yourself a day or two for C2 past papers and voila, you have an A. You have absolutely no need to be worried. 3 weeks is easily enough for C2.

C2 took me really long actually (admittedly this is in comparison to C1 and S1 only). Parts of it kept getting really boring. There are quite a few concepts to get your head around. When I say 'quite long' I mean a month with only say a maximum of 1/3 of the days having any work on C2 at all and that being between 1 hour and about 3 hours. So yeah it's doable, get on it!
8. Re: Three weeks and 3 days for C2 learning?
Yeah I really need to crack on so I can start to tackle those past papers.
9. Re: Three weeks and 3 days for C2 learning?
That's plenty of time! Seriously you could probably go over the main points that you need in just an hour or 2 per chapter. Then dedicate the rest of your time to past papers, do as many as you can find because that's when you'l really be revising, you'l be fine!

I've gotten a bit ill atm. I've covered two chapters

I'm just tempted to withdraw myself from the exam and do it next January.

Push! You've got time. You won't be ill for 16 days.

I'm just trying to finish up chapter 10 out of 11 of the Edexcel book. I haven't looked at S1 since I first went through it quickly and that exam is in 18 days! And I've only got about 2/5 of the way through M1 and that exam is on 16th May. After all this I still need to do C3 and C4 from scratch. Aarghrgrhgrhgrh GO TIME

Ah that's scary! Well, I've only got General Studies tomorrow and I'm ill so I'm gonna stay home to do lots of maths.

Got my driving test next week as well everything is piling on.

Withdrawing now will probably cost you money. You might as well have a go at it - the worst case is that you'll have to resit in January, which you're considering anyway. Hell, you might even do quite well. Even if you don't, you'll have extra exam experience. You've got us to help you through any things you find tough if you want it, so as long as you give it a go you'll have a decent shot. As long as you put the time in, you should be able to get all the stuff done with a decent amount of time to do past papers and other revision.

I'm trying to teach myself FP3 in time for that exam, I just find myself a quiet place and sit down with my book and do some exercises. Once I get into it, I can zoom through stuff. I did nearly a chapter's worth today, in about two hours and I reckon it's sunk in. Obviously, as mine's an A2 exam it's later than yours, but I can still sympathise.

If you have a big chunky textbook full of Q's with worked examples I'd recommend that over any website. Work through all the examples in each chapter and do a good % of the questions and you'll be well on your way to an A. If you put the hours in it's v doable in the time you have.
17. Re: Three weeks and 3 days for C2 learning?
You have enough time, honestly, especially if you put in a lot of work. If things don't go to plan you can always resit it anyway.
18. Re: Three weeks and 3 days for C2 learning?
