    I can't either and mine are on 10th and 12th of Jan, i kind of wish they were before xmas as I can't focus at all! still in the party mood, especially since its not been new year yet.

    (Original post by Fandabidoze!)
    Hopefully the New Year will bring a new enthusiasm for revision. However that means I've still got 2 more full days of procrastination left.
    I like your thinking.

    edit; just noticed this is in the a levels forum woops! since im talking about uni exams.

    You should record yourself reading out your notes and listen to that before you go to bed the night before your exam, that will work

    I can't revise, I keep blaming my cough and start swearing at everything then give up and mooch about on my laptop for the rest of the day. Procrastinating is too tempting!

    Why do so many girls always say "ewwwwww physics"? That phrase almost seems like done thing said by any girl that either finds it too hard, boring or doesn't like science!!

    You aint the only 1. im taking c1,c2 (both on same day, damnit!) and FP1 in jan lol. Finished C1 fully got 90%+ on all past papers, about to finish c2 and start on FP1 now .
    I don't get why they put C1 and C2 back to back. Anyone doing A level maths in one year will most probably be doing them both in January. And again I have C3 and FP1 back to back too. (I'm doing A2 maths AS FM), so anyone doing this combination will suffer as well.

    I have exams on the 10th, 12th, 14th, 17th, 19th, 24th.

    I've convinced myself that memorising the dates is somehow enough. I sense failure approaching.
