    At GCSE on results night I woke up at about 4am from nerves so put Harry Potter on, but at AS I took nightnurse and was out like a light and sleep through until I could get my results online! Might try that again

    C) anyone using the summer break to learn a new skill or make/build something?
    Finally going through all the old music theory I never learnt! I want to have a comfortable grasp on it by the time I hit uni (starting Yr 13 in September) so that's the skill I'm dedicating time to this summer. Other than that, I've been replaying Pokemon X in Japanese as "practice" for A2 Japanese. It's a lot of fun, but I don't really think I'm learning relevant vocab eheheh but it's sorta building my knowledge bank, I guess?
    The only other new skill I've been working on is my LNAT skill, lol, but what can you do?

    What about you? How's your summer going? \(^O^

    :cool:

    As an official card carrying groan up I don't get a long holiday over the summer (not least because in just under a month's time I'll be working on confirmation at work - A level results week is a bunch of extra work for us in universities).

    I am doing something new this summer though - I have my first colony of honey bees to look after and get strong enough to survive the winter (and maybe get some honey). And for the first time in my life I'm playing a pokemon game :o:

    I'm sure I've seen something somewhere about LNAT revision techniques. Am I right in remembering that it's part logical reasoning and part writing an essay?

    It's not TSR, it's my mother who is supposed to be HELPING ME KEEP CALM!

    She's just spent the last 15 minutes listing all the reasons why Cardiff is wrong for me and I should ditch it even if by some miracle I achieve the grades. She's convinced that the Bournemouth Advertising course is perfect for me (how she came to this conclusion I do not know and she will not explain).

    All this when I already have my own doubts

    I know, in a way it must be nice to have a mum who cares that much and is very proactive.
    Maybe you should tell her to lay off a bit? I know it can be hard but sometimes family needs putting in their place

    She hasn't bothered up until now, and the only thing she's done is make me doubt myself even more.

    I've tried... it didn't work.

    Then the best thing you can do is ignore her if you don't want to shout at her family problems are awful at any time so I can't imagine how awful you feel
