    im not bragging here but i left c1 and c2 really late, til the last day in fact. They were on the same day and i was so ****ing nervous the day before and was feeling sick. I tried to stay calm and just went through all the past papers that i could and the pressure i was under caused me to absorb so much **** like a sponge. I got 20 minutes sleep woke up, showered walked into the exam and got 95 UMS on both in the end. So yes it is long enough i would recommend just going through paper after paper and repeating this. Anything you cant get look at the textbook / online resources to guide you then have another attempt at the question.

    Good luck

    Honestly mate you will be fine. Just relax begin tomorrow by doing a paper for both units and seeing where you are at. Then simply work on your weaknesses rather than your strengths as "you are only as strong as your weakest point" then just repeat papers and you will be fine.

    Going back in time i would probably be able to hack that.

    Knock out C1 in two days, then 2 topics a day from C2; whilst doing all of this continuously go back and refresh your knowledge as it will fade fast and then you're done in a week, then spend the rest doing past papers.

    I'm in the same position with C2. 4 weeks seems like enough time tbh. Just bang out the past papers!

    Btw, will I be subject to late fees if I wanted to enter myself for S1 now?

    Title says it all. Haven't really reviewed much of it as it takes me a lot to get into it. Could I also have any tips of how to revise hem? Thanks )
    Depends on your ability. But it is perfectly doable within a couple of weeks.
    Considering you are revising, don't spend too long on the basic exercises (i.e don't bother repeating the same style of question about 10 times, unless you don't feel confident), move onto the Mixed Exercise/Review Exercises as they normally contain exam questions, then move onto past papers quickly.

    Perfectly doable. 1 full day per module to work slowly through textbook and pick up the theory. 1 full day per module to attempt all the exams papers. Sorted.

    If you have 4 weeks to go, do both in 2 weeks, then spend the last 2 weeks fine-tuning with practice and letting your knowledge mature...like fine wine.
