    A gibbering wreck. I get all weepy and paranoid. Crazy really considering how few exams I have - one in January and two in June :P

    Completely chilled- I revise a little bit, but not too much.. then I stress myself out totally for weeks knowing full well that I could have done so much better than I actually did!

    At the beginning of my GCSEs I was incredibly sleep deprived, moody, stressed and not someone you'd want to **** off - I did have a Higher German Speaking test though and a Humanities/psychology clash on the Tuesday and on the following Thursday I had my second psych. test.
    It was awful.

    By the end of it I couldn't give a flying monkey as I kept on thinking that I'd be okay in the end. I can always retake or take a BETEC if worst comes to worst - I didn't need to. Hurrah.

    I don't think about it. I've got into a really bad habit of not revising or anything, just turning up on the morning of the exam and hoping all goes well. I don't know what's wrong with me... In my AS's last year everyone was sitting in my sixth form revising and I just couldn't handle it and went out to sunbathe instead (?!)
    Did it affect your grades?

    I know quite a few people who had the same attitude and came away with really good grades. It's maddening :l

    I'm pretty cheery. I don't get too stressed over exams, and I'm probably the calmest of my friends. The only difference is, I survive off caffeine even more during exam season. In a normal day, I'll have a Red Bull or two. In exam season this can go up to four.

    Relentless all the way.

    Used to get Happy Shopper's own brand, but it was 20p/can so I ended up buying like 1000 of them and drinking so much it felt like time had slowed down. Which was not a productive way to write essays.

    This!

    And I'm usually depressed, drinking diet coke, coffee, not eating, not sleeping, not doing anything but revising and not actually taking anything in. Or I'm procrastinating. Usually the latter.
    I can't work unless I'm under pressure but when I'm under pressure I'm too paralysed to work. So I end up revising the night before. And then I wonder why I don't get the grades I want! :rolleyes::facepalm:

    Oh and instead of revising for Psychology, I'm on here. :sigh:
    I have a feeling I'll be ok but if I'm not, I'm not going to be happy!

    During my exam season I'm fine - I have an idea of how I'll do generally, so there's no use getting stressed out.
    During my period I get a little hormonal - it's not easy for males you know..

    I've done the actual practical bit I've got to do the paper tommorow. I can't turn my computer off it will hurt her feelings (I love my little lappy). Oh ****! I think I'm delusional. :bl:

    Aren't bans here only for a week? you could become a massive racist before exams, get banned, then come back after they're done.

    Or see if the mods will disable your account for a week or two.
