    Is anyone else on the verge of an emotional & mental breakdown? Been up all night revising, it's now 6am, 4/6ths through doing revision cards for history and still have to do them for another two subjects then learn them and do essay plans but it's taking a lifetime and there's so much to do in like 2/3 weeks and I thought I started in ok time but now I've realised I've been prioritising my first exam and my insurance uni isn't that much of an insurance and now I'm telling you all my life story and oh my gosh I think I'm going to have a meltdown, feel like I'm having a mid life crisis :cry2::cry2::cry2::cry2:

    Well if you don't try, there's definitely no way you will

    If you try, there's always a chance

    So what have you got to lose by trying

    Quick question (I'll use a really simple example).

    Exam 1 : 69 UMS
    Exam 2: 71 UMS

    That is a B overall, right?

    My friend is telling me it doesn't work like that.

    Assuming the exams are out of 100, yes.

    It's getting to that time of year again where I hate everyone. I should come with a warning sign around exam season. It's really bad. Not sure how to control my stress levels though :/

    It'll be alright! In a few weeks it will all be over! Just take a step back, breathe and plan out what you need to do! Don't plough on if you're feeling frazzled, especially if you're having a mental breakdown! Give your mind a rest and start fresh! Hang in there I'm sure you'll do brilliantly :-)
