    That's what I've been doing so far, but it doesn't feel like I've done enough, so I'm probably going to raise it to 6 hours - spread out through the day.
    Are you mainly doing exam-style questions or making revision notes?
    Tending to do a past paper then read over notes of where I've gone wrong, that works for sciences but harder for history and English etc

    Ahaha, I needed to rant. They were planning to take away a chunk of our study leave...

    Everything's better now though cuz they reached a compromise and agreed to only cut out one week. So it's all good. (Well, still annoyed but at least they listened to our complaints. )

    In hindsight, I probably would have survived... I just like to be melodramatic and all that shiz.

    Anyways, how are you?

    It's so annoying, we're not even allowed to go home during the exam season, like we have to go to all of our normal lessons unless we have an exam then we go back to lessons after it... It's absolutely ridiculous but apparently it's the law now?!

    Unfortunatley you're incorrect. The law regarding study leave before exam periods was reinstated by the department for education and Ed Milliband (-_-) in 2008. School's are not lawfully required to allow their students study leave before the exam series begins. It is however optional if they want to allow students to go to and from school in between their exams.

    They were talking about study leave during exam sessions, not before hand.

    Why are you doing this when many people's, mine included, main source of motivation comes from seeing how hard the other people on this thread work? Also I've tried to ask for help about subjects on the Study Help boards and I've never got a response, so I prefer to ask the people I know on here... Do you propose an alternative?

    Edit: just realised the date. Not funny :facepalm:

    I hate it when our school changes teachers so quickly. It's all very well that a few have complained, but now the new one won't have a clue where we're at. It's pretty important now, too.Who knows, it might turn out alright - I just wish they'd give us more notice.
