    Same... One of my teachers seems to think that past papers are the ONLY effective method of revision. We've had so many given to us throughout the last few weeks - my bag is now full of them.
    Same. I've also been given like loads of folders to take home and its just like: "how do i carry all of this"

    My mum picked up my bag the other morning and asked me if I really needed all of those books. She was surprised when I said yes.

    Wow that's really good! How much revision are you planning to do or have done so far? Or Do you have a photogenic memory?

    I'm taking biology, chemistry, maths and German (if I get the grades aha, which I should, but you never know...)
    What're you taking?
    Oh cool! I guess you're pretty into the harder subjects, hahaha. I think I'm taking English Literature, History, Philosophy and Media. Unless I drastically change my ideas before September.

    Haha I love history, but the other three subjects sound like hell me haha!! :eek:

    I have a massive pile of past papers in my room that I've printed off and some that teachers have given to me. My mocks were in January, and I can still remember stuff from then, so my revision is basically all past papers now. :L
