    I'm not drowning in it but I have a considerable amount to do. Namely:

    Music unit 2 appraisal
    Music unit 4 composition
    History essay (not writing it... Cutting out 1,000 words :unimpressed:)
    Physics coursework
    Mandarin writing

    And of course revision. Which I have no clue as to how to approach it or make a timetable.
    I made a timetable! I left space on a few days as 'homework days' and i write out all of my revision notes in xmas hols i think im going to get questions to do for revision: my mocks are in feb

    Sort of, since I have overdue pieces of coursework and I have to do it by the end of January otherwise I won't be doing the higher tier.

    Is it posssible to go from a low B on English controlled assessments (40%) and achieve an A overall. (AQA)
    I think so. Im re doing my english lit cw but i got a B and she said she was 99% sure i would get an A so it is possible

    At our school they photocopy graph paper to print with the science coursework booklets. It's horrific, I always have to ask for the proper stuff because photocopied makes my eyes hurt

    Who doesn't? :rolleyes:
    The graph paper I used earlier on was actual print outs but the paper had no indication of where the numbers should have been eg. a mark at every 10th box. Then after that homework, I went on to a geography which had the exact same graph paper... I felt like jumping off a cliff today...

    Aaahhhh! That's horrible! It all merges into one and I end up doing lines every four little squares or something silly... :unimpressed:

    I know the IBs pretty tough but you've actually got it pretty easy apart from history. What's the combination for?

    I Doubt they'll give you any in the 2014 series because those are supposed to be restricted for teachers only so they can be used accurately for passed papers; if they give them out to every tom **** and harry then eventually they can't be sure if people are cheating in mocks.

    Any other ones they'll probably give you if not you ca find them on exam board websites by googling the exam code and board.

    I'm sure they'd give you them if you asked! I got back all of my mock papers for revision purposes and most of them were the 2014 ones...only my English teacher wouldn't let us take them home. There's no harm in asking
