    I got exams on the 10th, 12th and 13th Jan. I've revised for 2 subjects got Maths to go, it's the first exam so I'll revise it last
    You need to relax, break the information up into bits and take it in slowly. Start by making revision notes, it will get stuck in your head and you won't even know it!

    Wow all you need to do is gather up the motivation to start revising for at least half an hour, then you'll find it easier to do more and more. I managed 5 hours of revision today with the intention of doing 2 (but then again I am naturally stupid and so need more revision to get a decent grade)

    yh i applied 3 weeks a go for civil engineering...ive got 3 offers so far

    ohhh thats quite quick, my dad's a civil engineer and it seems a pretty cool job
    wheres he studying? biology's been my favourite subject since primary school, so it kind of made sense to study something biology/chemistry related

    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!!
    because thats the only way to describe it!

    well, i love science and i was actually better at physics than chemistry during GCSEs, but i have to say it is the most boring subject ever. i actually slept the way through my lessons last year

    I do two minute "bursts" of revision - that's all i can handle. If it was an interesting subject then it might be a bit easier...but no, it's psychology, and I have to get at least a B in this exam. Man oh man.

    I haven't even looked at a Politics textbook yet, exam in 2 weeks. To add to this I have English Coursework and a Media essay to be doing for Wednesday next week, and for some reason it's more important to learn "F*ck You" by Cee Lo Green on piano :\

    Wish it worked that way :/ I'm on a gap year due to missing my grades last year. Now I've been given an easy offer from Nottingham and Bristol, so pressure's off slightly as I only need 2 more marks in two subjects.

    But the thing this gap year has shown me is just how rubbish statements like yours above actually are. I think the reason a lot of people who miss uni due to bad grades or just go to a crappy one is fundamentally because of a problem with their personality which would apply to all forms of work. Not just school work. If you have the type of personality which will drive you to succeed then missing out uni is hardly a problem.

    My manager at work has just graduated from Sheffield, but is now complaining because a lot of his friends from Hallam have managed to get insanely good jobs. I've heard of loads of ex-poly uni students who have walked into jobs we're constantly told go to the Russell Group. It's all a load of rubbish.

    Then you have my friends brother and his friends. His brother is 23, earned 110k last year, is a director of an up and coming finance company and has the chance to buy 10% of the company for 100k, even though it's worth far more (free money), and didn't go to uni. He just got a job straight out of school with pretty poor A levels, worked hard and did some kind of financial qualifications. Was then asked by his boss to move to this new company with him, and after a year was made director. Base salary is 75k, then he gets commission for his services, although that's changing to pay per hour (which will work out as another 75k apparently).

    A lot of his friends have done pretty well themselves. One guy went to Lincoln (I think) and got a job with a supermarket chain. He's now on 50k at 23.

    Work hard at anything you do in life and you'll go places. But don't use that as an excuse not to revise now. The sooner you start working hard, the sooner you get used to working hard.
    Wow, now that is what you call real motivation. Perhaps, even a little inspirational.

    BUT, what would you say to someone that has severe asthma and has been bugged down with a flu/cold since the beginning of the holidays and is still ill. In a nutshell, that's been my life story for the christmas holidays. I've tried to stay in bed and revise bits everyday even though i've been vomiting at least once a day. I've now finished an entire subject and still have two more subjects (Maths and RS) to still go. Note that RS will take a lot of revision.
