    I have 3 of my exams next week.
    Monday - English language
    Wednesday - Sociology
    Thursday - Health and social care

    Then Sociology again the following Tuesday.

    Starting to worry now, don't feel like I know enough to get AAB for uni

    Ooh, I have Socoiology 3 on Wednesday, good luck whatever unit you're doing!

    I think everyone's dreading it to be honest - I mean who looks forward to exams, really? I think this last stretch of exams are the last though. They're probably the hardest of our time at sixth form, and there is added pressure due to entry requirements for uni etc, so everyone is really feeling stressed right now!

    I'm really struggling with revision and panicking a bit about my grades - I also need AAB! Try not to panic, stay calm and focus yourself on revision

    3 exams next week, 3 exams the following week, and 1 exam the week after that. I've already had 1 exam last week.
    And I did 3 modules early in January.
    We're talking ALL A2 modules, which adds up to 11.
    KILL. ME. NOW. :coma:

    Yesss, Sociology 3. Dreading Sociology 4 the most because there is simply too much to cover!
    What university are you going/course are you doing?
    Thank you, good luck also!

    Ahh good old A2
    Just don't panic, don't overexert yourself by trying to revise too much now (says the guy cramming for EU law the day before his exam :rolleyes:) and make sure you're getting plently of sleep etc.

    OP don't worry I felt the same as you did before I took my A2s.

    Nothing will be on the exam that you haven't been taught at some point. Your brain is a wonderous tool. I have a terrible memory (possibly the worst know to living man) and I'm still able to dredge up facts/points (even if some of them are totally irrelevant I may add) so you should do/be fine

    I've actually been told by some university goers/grads that A2 is on some aspects harder than first year uni due to the pressure? Ah I don't know
    But thank you! I sure hope so. Resat a couple of my AS' modules to scrape AAA in the subjects I have carried on, been told I need at least Bs to pull it to an overall A for A2 though, urgh A levels.

    How do you have so many :O! I only have 4 in total, although 4 of my A2 modules were coursework based.

    I think that depends on what subject you do/what university you go to.

    1st year law at Lancaster is a total bitch because they chuck you in at the deep end. Had 3 exams in 3 days last week (**** yeah :sexface:) and it only gets worse according to 2nd years.

    Getting Bs (and even As to a certain extent) isn't as difficult as teachers will make it out to be. You'll be fine!

    I got my bio4 resit, It seems biology all I can do is hope I need nearly and an A* in both my bio papers to get the A I need its possible but hard.

    Maths need like a high C in C4 to get my B still need to put in some effort havent even done one Past paper and got 2 or 3 excersizes left to finish book .

    Chem I could get my A from here I would need to destroy unit 5 so utterly nicely seems unlikely 110/120 isn't an easy feat but that doesn't mean I cant try.
