    Why don't you do them off the internet online that is what i do
    I've tried that but they just don't feel 'real' enough for me I guess, so I prefer to have the printed copy. Also they're easier to do if they're right in front of you
    When I mark them I just use the mark scheme off the internet because that's easier to do, but I need a hard copy of the actual papers

    Oh, is it hard? I quite like Edexcel as they're usually quite lenient with the mark schemes
    Also, what books are you studying for your exams?

    23/03/2016 - Evening update

    Today's been pretty good actually. We started a new topic in physics (Electric Circuits ) which was really interesting and I'm enjoying, so that's good
    In English (double) we were looking at more poetry comparison exam questions which were ok

    The maths exam, annoyingly, we've sat before, which means that my grade won't be that accurate (according to the mark scheme I got around 98%)

    Revision-wise I've done a lot today. Made notes on the entire of C1 and started some on C2 as well. I was meant to go to a revision session today after school for geography, but my teacher cancelled at the last minute which was quite annoying.

    Got the long Easter weekend coming up which should be a really good opportunity to get in some good hours of revision to set me up for the holidays

    26/03/2016 - Morning update

    Delayed start in my revision today as I just couldn't drag myself out of bed at 8:30

    Yesterday I didn't do that much at all
    I made some notes on C3 for chemistry (skipping C2 for now as we haven't actually learnt it in class yet) but I need to buy some more index cards and holders so I can make notes on the other 2 sciences as well seeing as chemistry's had all of my attention for about 3 days now

    Today I plan to:
    -Go to wilkos and buy 3 packs of index cards and 2 holders, for science revision
    -Start making cards on P1 for physics and B1 for biology
    -Possibly start revising PE content, as there's so bloody much of it
    -Organise my past papers so that I know which ones I have to print off next week
    -If I have time, anything else I can think of

    Time to crack on

    Ooh a second update in one day

    Today I have already:
    -Been shopping (bought waaay more than I intended to oops )
    -Typed up all of my notes for B1 in biology
    -Wrote half of them on index cards (5/10 done, hope to get them finished today too)
    -Organised my revision folder
    -Stapled my past papers together so I can actually use them in the holidays

    I still plan to:
    -Finish making my biology index cards
    -Make a start on physics ones

    Done quite a lot to say I only started at 2pm and it's 5 now (well a bit past)
    I hope I can keep this up all weekend

    Yesterday I finished writing up my notes for B1, so now that's completely covered
    I also typed up what to write on 8 index cards for P1

    Today I'm meeting up with some friends and then I'm going to my grandmas, so I won't get much done today, but I still plan on doing a little bit.

    Today I plan to:
    -Finish typing up my P1 notes
    -Start writing them onto index cards
    -Make some notes on Marriage and the Family for RE

    As I expected, I barely got anything done today, however I did manage to:
    -Finish typing up my P1 notes
    -Write up 3 of them onto index cards, but my handwriting wouldn't go nice today so I stopped

    But...that's it.
    It was nice to have a break from revision though, so there is that

    Tomorrow I probably won't get much done either, but that's no problem. Just this week to get through before the holidays, woohoo!

    Just 50 days to go!
