    No I do edexcel iGCSE, I found it ok but then I looked at the 'unofficial markscheme' on here and started realising all the stuff I got wrong . Did you do AQA? How did you find it?
    I do edexcel iGCSE too, I screwed up so much!

    No I do AQA which was really good! Last year for GCSE Spanish the listening grade for an A* was 27 out of 40!
    I never really heard as much about AQA Chemistry than I did for AQA Biology ahhh I'm glad I didn't have to answer questions on drunken rats and underage drinkers.

    IGCSE last year for Listening was 33! as long as I do well in Reading and Writing which I usually do I should be ok though.

    Trust me it is never too late. Seriously, for my exams so far I have done little or no revision and they have gone better than I could have ever hoped for. Remember, positivity goes a long way and helps you think clearly in the exam. You have to work smart, not hard. So condense your notes into very specific things you need to know, and do NOT spend ages reading over them- I know so many people who do this. Instead do a past paper because EXAM TECHNIQUE is what will help you do well.

    Do not worry I hope you pursue your dream of becoming a medic- you will make a great one!
    What notes lol. But seriously thank you. All the best with your exams too!

    I have been revising last minute for all the exams I've done and I keep panicking, but then i have no motivation so why tf am I so panicky. Then I promise I'll revise more when I sleep, but the next day I come home after school and procrastinate. So I'm a conflicted being with no motivation to get **** done for my own future and instead will watch hours of melodrama and stupid YT videos instead of RE-VISE. Basically, I'm done for ;____;

    Yes! I swear I did more revision for my mocks than these GCSEs, it feels like yesterday that I was in year 7 and couldn't imagine getting out of school. I kind of feel like all the hard work I put in for the last 5 years has been for nothing because I haven't revised hard enough for these final few weeks.

    I think more people are in this position than are admitting it, though. Sometimes coming on here gets me down because everyone claims to have been revising since they were in their mother's womb and it just makes me feel guilty for aiming for the same grades when I haven't put in that last push of effort :/
    I feel the EXACT SAME! For the past couple of years I've been predicted A* grades but I've wasted all my weekends and all my holidays and half terms procrastinating - I regret not revising, I should've started in Easter at least when everyone else started. It's so demoralising when you know you're able but you just haven't revised enough, and after the exam everyone's like 'HA I GOT THIS I'M SO HAPPY' and you're just like 'I didn't get that...' I feel so pressurised now because of these high predicted grades but judging from the exams I've done so far, I feel like I'll let everyone including myself down - dreading results day...
