    Do you feel confident or anxious? Do you think you could've done more revision? If so, how are you thinking of preparing?

    Just curious if it's only me that has a panic attack every time I realise GCSE's are like a week away.

    Feeling pretty anxious but calm at the same time. You should just approach this exam as if it's a mock and don't worry too much about it. When is your first exam? Mine is on wednesday.

    I feel weird.

    My Biology exam is on Tuesday and it feels like I haven't done that much revision. But I feel fine about it.

    My French exam is actually tomorrow, and it's awkward because I can't take it seriously at all. I've only done GCSE French since half way through Year 11 and that was just a few off-timetable days for the coursework and then one lesson after school every Thursday (So technically I take it as a fifth option, the school wanted me to do the eBacc). So because I haven't studied it full time I just think "meh" about it. But I am doing quite a lot of revision for it.

    I'm most worried for my Maths and English, since we have to take almost the whole of the 2 years of English exams in that short period, and I am so unprepared. I don't have any quotes memorised from any of the 3 books. I have a few character profiles in my mind but that's it.

    On my B1A and stuff i was like omg i can't believe it. Now I am like oh well.
    I revised loads for some of my others and got better when I did less for some reason. I tend to leave revision until the week or so before, saying that I have rs on thursday so I will be doing maybe some tomorrow.
    I really in a way wish I was more stressed but I can't be bothered.
    Looking foward to my maths exam because I am getting B's, this time last year I was getting U's (15% on tests and now I am getting 62%)
    I have already got a C but want more .
    Only got 14 exams, including 1 retake because I failed hehe. Someone I know has got line 21 or something and I also know someone who has 9!

    I'm not feeling as nervous as I thought I was going to be to be honest! Got a short course RE exam on Tuesday but does that one reaaaally count or matter? Not too sure! Then a few more and then nearly 2 weeks off for witzern. My exams are really spread out and I feel I'm on top of my revision so I'm just trying to treat them as mocks and just do my best. That's all I can do really.

    Good luck to everyone!
