    I know :bawling: There's just so much to learn, and you're screwed if you don't revise just one event as much as the other events and it turns up in the exam.

    I'm okay with my other exams, actually. But History is mind torture. I'm in two minds about taking it next year now, to be honest
    My teacher is very good at doing her research and predicting what topics might come up, but of course, I can't depend on that. It just helps get priorities straight.

    OmW, what about those questions that include two or three events in the Q, that you have to analyse inside/out upside / down?

    Do the examiners cut us any slack?

    Hey all, got these bloody as levels coming up in under 2 weeks :/ how is everyone preparing for it? how many hours are you guys doing a day? and what subjects do you do? personally i've just literally started revising today also im getting stressed over these exams so what do you do if you're stressed apart from masturbating. lol jk about the last thing
    Don't worry about it. If you've done good work throughout the year you shouldn't have to cram it all at the last minute. Look over your books, learn some quotes for English (if you're doing Lit) and do a couple of practice papers. If, of course, you didn't do any work in the year and you've left it until now to start learning then... you may have more reason to be stressed

    Don't ask other people how long they spend revising a day unless you're looking for an excuse to have to masturbate :cool: People can revise 8 hours a day making notes in coloured gel pens and learn nothing, whilst some people who sit outside all day contemplating whether to work or not will breeze through because they remember stuff from the lessons easily. Ignore the 8 hours a day people. They're not cool.

    No problem. Hm, English Lang is way hard to revise for... maybe have a look at some revision guides. They're not amazing but it'll give you more of an idea of what they're looking for which is always helpful, or looking at the marking criteria online. Otherwise just reading papers and stuff to get a feel for different styles of writing? There's not that much you can do for Lang in my experience.

    As for statistics I'm afraid I have no idea... I never liked maths/stats and failed miserably at my stats GCSE coursework so I'm not the person to ask! Good luck, though, sounds like you've done good work on the rest of it!

    I've been revising for over a month and I still haven't covered everything. I hate AQA History, I really do...
    AQA History is academic hell

    I've been an idiot and left everything to the last minute once again. For my AS exams last year I did fine because all my exams were in late May/early June but this time I literally have them all next week and the week after. I spent the last month of school trying to finish my art (which I still haven't done). I haven't picked up a book for either of my history exams and am absolutely ****ting it. English lit I'm a little worried too :/. I actually hate myself, fml!
