# Struggling with revision? Join the TSR session every hour!! From 7am-2am. watch

1. So C1 was awful. Really awful. I just want to curl up into a ball and cry.
But, i'm not giving up. Going to get some lunch and change my plan a little:
2-330 = C2 June 2013
345-515 = F332 (Chemistry Unit 2) June 2011
530-7 = S1 January 2012

Then we'll see how i feel.

Taking the day off revision to recover from that tragedy of a paper.
3. How was C1 everyone? (I don't do maths but everyone at my college said it was horrific.) I hope it went better than you thought it did! I'm sure you all did brilliantly.

4. I'm just dissapointed more than anything else tbh.

Well and truly dissapointed.

It was a C1 paper. C1 FGS!

Supposedly the easiest of all maths papers and I don't think a single question in there was entirely straightforward bar, like, 2.

Even the arithmetic progression required me to think excessively.

Don't even get me started on the discriminant/simultaneous rubbish that took up all of my damn time.

I RAN OUT OF TIME. HOW ON EARTH DOES ONE RUN OUT OF TIME ON A STUPID C1 PAPER.

IT TAKES, LIKE, 50 MINS MAX.

You're meant to pretty much come out of the exam thinking you've completed a KS3 mental maths puzzle.

In comparison to the A2 units, it sometimes feels that way!

I'm just so angry. It just could've gone so much better and the past papers made me believe that it would.

It's annoying because I tried revising hard for it and was faced with that utter rubbish.

It was actually just full of rubbish lmao.

Like, I'm not going to exaggerate and say it was absolute hell in a booklet but it was nothing what it was supposed to be.

I didn't really want to lose more than 5 marks on that unit and it evidently looks like I have.

Why. Oh why.

Sigh. I'm glad I've ranted that out.- Feel a bit better now and I think I'm actually going to forget about what happened and start studying bc those exams next week aren't going to ace themselves.

Will start on a C2 paper at 2:30pm.

I'm not sure, I saw a lot of similarities between my answers and that of the unofficial MS so it's just a case of waiting and hoping that the grade boundaries are lower rather than higher.

11. Why did I even come on TSR today?

Been lurking around all the threads discussing the C1 exam and everyone is saying how horrificly it went.... before this, I genuinely thought it had gone ok besides about 3 questions in the paper which I totally messed up.

Oh well, I'm sure we all did better than we thought we did.

12. I found a mark scheme for C1 - Set yourselves at rest and focus on your other exams - and if you didn't do as well as you thought then revise more for the other two exams!

13. Try not to lose motivation guys! I know quite a few of us might have felt like the exam didn't go as well as we wanted it to today but remember that it's just one module out of 6 modules. It’s one exam, in one subject. Sometimes when an exam goes badly we forget that there's still so much more to do to make up for it. Perhaps you're trying to pinpoint where it went wrong and it might've simply been bc of the pressure or maybe the exam stress/nerves and if it was bc of that then at least you've hopefully learnt how to approach the next ones better now. Personally, my exam wasn't a total washout, but I know I under performed and I am feeling incredibly disheartened but it's not the end of the world. What's happened has happened and sometimes things just don't go your way despite how hard you may try. I'm trying to focus on the fact that I tried my best and if it wasn't enough then it wasn't enough and I'm not going to get worked up over it bc that was all I ever could've done. I was originally feeling all rather demotivated and didn't want to work on C2 or anything else for that matter but realised that the only we can change this situation is by working hard on our next exams so that's exactly what I'm going to do. One exam going badly doesn't mean they'll all go the same way. We can do this, okay?

If you think taking a day off will benefit you then do it. - Hope everyone who's currently feeling demoralized feels better soon.
14. Is anyone here re-taking Business Studies Unit 1 tomorrow?
