    I was just wondering does anybody else have the problem of taking Spanish, English literature and psychology, as the exams are all on the same day?

    I think everyone's a little stressed at the moment! (myself included)

    My UCAS form is all ready to be sent off, except for my EPQ section, as the meeting is next Wednesday and I still haven't 100% decided what I'm doing for it. I was really wanting to do an EPQ, although now I'm having second thoughts as college reckons it takes up 120 hours over around seven months, which works out at around 4 hours a week. I'm not sure I'll have enough time to fit it in and I don't want to compromise my A level grades, especially since I'm applying to Russell Group institutions - argh, it's just a nightmare.

    I'm thinking of just not doing the EPQ. It'd allow me to focus on my A level grades and it would mean that I could send my Oxford application off next week. What does anyone else think?
    At the end of the day, your A levels are more important than your EPQ

    What do you mean? Are you genuinely saying you don't have enough time in the day to revise AS, or you just don't have a method?

    I don't have a method, like I'm not sure how many hours of AS I should do alongside A2 (which I will obviously do more hours for). I've been keeping up with my A2 stuff but I need to start fitting in AS - just not sure how much to do a week

    Well 2 of my 3 subjects are linear so I have to know the AS and A2 stuff, so I've just incorporated some sub topics in to my daily planner and make sure I review everything by half term. I'll do the same for each term.

    Yeah that's a good idea! Plus there are a few synoptic links to AS in A2 Bio, so that can help me choose what to go over. Thank you

    There's nothing worse and more demotivating than being told by teachers "we think you can get A*A*A* but we're predicting you AAA" :cry::cry:
