    What subject?


    Be optimistic and realistic, if you log off TSR RIGHT NOW could you MAKE HISTORY AND get a PASS GRADE TMR????:cookie:

    (like a C or whatever depending on exam)??

    IF SO GET OFF TSR AND STUDY SOPHIE!!!

    wait the word "probably" suggests you can still do it, study god damn, sacrifice today and grind it out:dumbells: for a better future!
    I swear, you're the most uplifting person on this forum :gah:.
    Can I steal you and just have you cheer me up whenever I fail in life (i.e. 99% of the time)?

    I'll pay you in food.

    Also OP, I defied the odds last year and I got a first for an exam that I prepared overnight. (I slept half of the day, as I had an exam earlier that day as well, so not even a full day to revise). I was lucky enough that I got the topics that I knew the best. I guess it depends on what subject you study, but it's better to prepare now as much as you can and worry/waste time after the exam.

    Infection and Immunity, University exam.

    Yeah. I've barely been on TSR or doing any other procrastination all day. I'm taking a break before I completely break down.

    I've been studying hard but my brain is just all over the place.

    Why do you feel like you will fail?
    I'm just not retaining the information at all.

    As soon as I leave it for 20/30 minutes the information is just gone I can't remember it. So after revising for hours when I go to a practise question I cannot answer it without going back and looking at my notes....an obviously can't have notes in an exam.

    Think positively Sophie
    If you think you will fail you will fail
    But if you go into the exam thinking you aim to put the info down you will do well
    Dont think negatively/put yourself down

    Oh this is an AMA
    What exam is it on?
    eh, I don't buy any of the positivity nonsense. You either know your stuff or you don't. No amount of smiling is going to make you remember the ins and outs of a subject. I'm being realistic.

    Infection and immunity exam.

    Why don't you revise now?
    I have been revising, I'm taking a break. There is only so much revising you can do in one solid block before you just start zoning out.

    The good thing is Sophie isn't replying, suggesting she's not on TSR, suggesting she's studying!! :party:
    I have been revising all day.

    But I wasn't replying because I went the shop to buy snacks and onions.

    why not start with doing a few questions open book, so at least you know what ought to go in there?

    Ar this stage dont do full questions keep doing detailed essay plans.

    Dont forget to eat proplery and get some rest. maybe a walk outside might clear a bit of stress?

    Eh, I definitely won't get a first in the exam. Simply not possible. There are 2 sections. One section I may be able to score highly in if the topics I am best at come up. But the second section...I'll be lucky if I can answer one of the essays at all let alone well. I'm just not retaining the information.

    It also doesn't help to know that most people failed the exam last year...so yeah.
