    Edexcel- Philosophy and Ethics(90 marks) and Philosophy of Religion(50 marks- about religious experiences).
    I'm retaking one of my AQA RS exams alongside doing my A2 work. I beg you, if you pass do not think at the start of the year that you'll have the will power to resit an exam. I'm literally writing this on my break from revising A2 because I have no clue what I'm doing and only have a week till my resit for AS and still don't know any of the clobber.
    so yay

    Ooh they are hard Alevels! So why didn't you take English???
    Oh you'll laugh at this one
    Apparently I was already so good in english, my teachers thought it was better I went to a-levels and 'developed' my mind in other subjects. So here I am, developing my mind....

    Nooo... My school said nothing about our mocks going towards UCAS and Unis. The first mock was to show my teachers how I was(all my subjects) and the 2nd mock was for people who got 2 grades below their target grade(I had to do a mock for Media and RS not because I did bad but because my class is small so my teachers forced everyone in the class, even if you got an A, to do another mock).

    Ahh right, so the mocks you did, did go towards UCAS? Or are you doing others that are the ones that go towards UCAS?

    They didn't go towards UCAS at all, even it did, my school would've told me and everyone else in my year. We did the mock to show our teachers how we were doing

    It's normal to react to exam stress by worrying, but worrying doesn't help.

    Here's my advice- I like lists (:

    1. You can't control the outcome of the exams or whether you will be admitted to the sixth form. You can control what you do now and during the exams to give yourself the best possible chance of getting the grades and getting into sixth-form.

    2. Forget the past- whether you worked well enough on your studies- and make a realistic timetable for your revision in the time left.

    3. Do your best to stick to the timetable each day, ticking off revision periods one by one, and coming on to this forum for help on particular items.

    4. Discipline yourself not to think ahead and allow your mind to dwell on maybes and doom and gloom.

    I promise you -I've been there, done it and got the wardrobe of t-shirts- in a year or 5 you will look back on this period of your life and wonder why you took it SO seriously.

    Best of luck (:
    Thank you! They are really good tips! I'm just going to try and discipline myself loads to revise and whatever happens at least I know I tried 😁 Although disciplining my self is much harder in reality
