    What should I realistically be doing at this stage? Should I have my head in a book cramming up until a reasonable time (10pm is bedtime) or should I be relaxing, should I be doing some light revision? Anyone??

    I think if you are confident then relax, prepare yourself - it's an important exam.

    If you are okay, and you know most stuff, maybe revise the key points on areas you are a bit 'rough' on - read over notes maybe..

    If you are completely clueless about the exam tomorrow and know nothing, I suggest you do past papers and start learning asap!

    Good luck!

    I feel quite confident with this exam, I've worked really hard for it and have thoroughly completed the CGP books and apps. I'm just doing random work sheets as I've already finished all of the past papers, I'm just doing it with music on trying to keep calm and lower anxiety levels.

    You sound so prepared! I have my edexcel biology tomorrow & AQA French. French I'm not nervous about but biology I'm dreading. There is just so much content!

    Awwh hahahah, I have my AQA French and Biology tomorrow as well but I'm doing foundation french - it's the only subject I'm taking foundation purely because I completely messed up my mocks but have A*'s an A and 2 high B's in my assessments so I should be fine!

    Just remember to calm down outside of the exam, don't show your stress, stay away from stressed people, take the time to reflect on all of your hard work that you've been doing!

    I'm only confident with Biology and French because French is foundation which I really don't struggle with - watch me fail it hahah, I probably will because I'm being cocky! And Biology (unit 1 only) I've just done so much work I really can't mess it up that badly - I hope!

    For bio i am flicking through mark schemes to past papers, so i get to know the kind of answers the examiners are looking for
    It's also worth checking out the spec!
