    Not to be a bummer but there was a guy in my class who claimed to have revised for each subject over 100 hours and came out with Cs
    Then there's certain folks who revise the night before and get an a*
    :congrats: you just became a bummer
    I was trying to be
    whats the word
    um
    "consolidating"? yes i think that works
    Spoiler:

    You have a point Monsieur. Yes.
    In biology I used to revise for ages and get Ds :lol: but I changed my revision style to get an A* at the end of Y11
    but for french and chemistry = night before --> A*'s (and german too)
    physics, no matter how much revision did I got A's so yh :erm: idk y
    It depends on the person.

    And then they tell you that, should you have revised real late for GCSEs, you can't do it at A-level cos it's too hard. And then they tell you, should you have revised real late for A-levels, you can't do it at uni cos it's too hard. Left revising for the hardest and most complicated module this year til two days before and got 86.. After revising for ages for a much easier module and getting 74 though.

    Hi! No, I wasn't given anything to write over summer unfortunately! (I hope you do well on your essay!) Instead, I'm reading the set books that will essentially put me at a minuscule advantage during the course I have no idea how I've done, I thought the exams went quite well (not brilliantly) so I thought I might do okay considering none of them went awfully (okay.. besides Maths). Although for some strange reason, during the run up to the day, I feel as though I've failed everything and done awfully! How do you think you have done?

    Thanks I feel like I've failed Maths- the paper was totally unexpected ( I was doing Higher and everything that we had predicted in class didn't come up. I also think that I failed Science as a whole, mainly because its one of my worst subjects. I definitly failed R.E as I didn't really revise because I hate it but other than that everything came up that I had revised. The subjects that I took were all the compulsory ones plus Geography- which went well, History- which I revised more than Maths , and Graphic Design- the exam was soo hard but my coursework was an A* so I've no idea what will happen...

    I did Higher Maths too! I already had a C in Foundation but I had a go at Higher and I feel as though I won't get the grade but I hope so so much that I get a B! I'm sure you'll be fine! What are you taking other than English Lit (if you are)? :-)

    Same! I was already a C but then was put on Higher and then my target was a B but I don't think I've got even that. I really want a B so badly but because of it being really hard I pretty much doubt that. If we both feel confident enough to tell each other our grades on Thursday, why dont we? I think it would be good to get them out in the open but only if we feel like it on the day, maybe?

    I'm also taking Graphic Design, Photography, and Geography and I'm thinking of dropping Geography.
