    Chem F331 (retake)
    Chem F332
    Psychology A1 (retake)
    Psychology A2

    By tomorrow hopefully all my revision for F211 will be done
    F331 I want to finish by the end of the week.
    PSYA1 I also want to finish by the end of the week.
    That gives me two months to revise all the Unit 2 stuff

    You should be perfectly fine then Just make sure you work hard and do plenty of past papers and then you'll get the top marks in the exam!

    Three exams, which I find hard to revise for due to various full-time commitments. It shouldn't be particularly hard to do well, but what can I say? I'm lazy

    I'm resitting F211 as well! That's if my mark doesn't change on the remark.
    My teachers found 5-6 marks on the paper that they missed out, so that should take me up to mid B from a D.

    I literally started revising today, only have 4 exams and this time round F211 shouldn't take me that long, I went through 20 or so pages of it in about an hour and still remembered all the content like the exam was yesterday. I do 4 hours a day because I have 4 exams. I wasn't specific enough in the exam, I lost marks due to not mentioning 1 more word that was needed, which my teachers and I thought was a bit picky, but I have to deal with it.

    What you're doing is fine, just remember to give yourself a day off so you don't get too stressed!

    Good luck in your exams!!

    Ah wow that would be so amazing if your grade jumps up I failed MISERABLY in F211 which was so weird because I came out of that exam so confidently! But yeah my teacher also said that I have the knowledge, I just struggle to mention the key terms the examiner is looking for, so I need to improve on exam technique! Yeah, If im planning to work all week then Sunday will be my lazy day, like always! haha

    Thanks so much! You too!!

    Your motivation is there, if you chose this (if neither your school nor parents chose for you)

    Just keep working. I only 17-8 exams, and that was the most in my school.. because I was filled with retakes!

    Thanks when did you start revising for them? I started yesterday and now I'm really worried I won't have enough time :/ also, how did you revise?
    Yeh I started mainly in the Easter holidays..don't ever think what you 'should have done' otherwise you would have had no life for the last 2 years! Umm I guess I tried lots of different ways...I used note cards for science, A3 posters for geography a notebook for maths, I recorded quotes for English and RE and German on MP3 and just listened to them over and over but my most hated subject was English! So I spent the most time on that... I was given loads of essay titles and I found the best thing was to make a plan for each one in 10 mins and then to write out a few of the essays! It worked for me, just prioritise, plan your time and find a way that you like revising (:
