    Hey guys I need some help

    My exam season starts from Monday onwards and I know that I need straight A*'s in what I can do to keep the doors to my option choices open but the problem is that I can't stop stressing about it. I keep assuming that I'm going to fail and I'm finding it hard to even think straight. I've barely had any sleep and I'm panicking to myself about things that are probably miniscule to you and I just wanted your advice :dontknow:

    Hahaha sounds like an underground drugs ring. :/ Surely you know everyone at school? Or does he hide? Lool

    You're an Aussie?! How cool! Haha
    At least you can do such things.... My schools already given us lectures on how we're not allowed to draw on our clothes or we'll be sent home and excluded from the boat party. "it is however ok to get a spare shirt in from home to write on" - how considerate! Lol
    What kinds of things do you get up to on Leavers day?

    Well I would advise against grouping me in with the sort of people who recognise Leavers' Day as an actual important event.

    Those people will inevitably become ridiculously drunk and start ****ing everything up. Last year was such that the police will be stationed around the town making sure nobody does anything mildly idiotic.

    We're allowed to write on stuff, but we have to be in uniform for exams so my Head of Year had fun mentioning that if you write on your shirt, you can have fun buying a new one :mmm:

    My passport may say Australian, but I generally don't ally myself with any nation; I find the whole concept of nationality restrictive and causal of too many problems.

    I do the same thing. I guess i get through it by trivialising the exams...
    I mean they're exams and there is life beyond exams. No ones ever died from exam stress but there's always a first for everything and i'm among the ranks to die from it. Lol But really... Talk to people, friends. Ask wyourself why are you stressed? Is it because you're scared of failing and disappointing people? As long as you understand the stress you can conquer it. Also i'm religious so I turn to God and listen to Quran which helps me immensely but you may be atheist.

    I'm genuinely becoming terrified of UKIP.

    My friend in Year 13 actually came close to being elected as a councillor for an area in Norfolk, which I thought was cool, despite the fact that he's UKIP.

    My dad was telling me that once he sat an exam there was a student who had notes with him, then the guy noticed the teacher approaching him so he just ate it

    Haha yeah then the invigilator took him to the head teacher and the guy was like "but you have no evidence" so he was allowed to finish the exam and was given extra time since he wasted time talking to the head etc where he should have been in his exam

    Good idea! And some days you just don't get anything done. Today is that day for me. :/ Goodnight and hope you feel better soon! Just think it'll be over soon! Also... You can shred your books after every exam soooo your stress levels reduce after every exam.

    Debating with my (admittedly deranged) UKIP friend is actually quite fun. He's head of the Hitler UKIP Youth wing, which is pretty cool if you support UKIP (read: are wrong in every way) I suppose

    Hahaha I guess i've yet to experience what "real" schools are like since I attend an all girls school, which is largely ethnic minority and anti-school subcultures are at a minimum. *bubble pops*

    Hahaa i'm so naive... I cant comprehend or come to terms with 16 year olds drinking or ****ing. :/ Lol how on earth do you have order in the school!?

    I agree with you on the patriotism view, it is what causes divide when really we should unite for better things.

    No no no My friends from my old school found this rioting business quite odd when I mentioned it

    I'm not a big drinker (only been mildly tipsy once in Italy on school trip; it was fun because it wasn't over-the-top and I was among very good friends), and I've never had sex :lol: I'm not sure it's THAT common (although I tend to be out of the loop with these things in my nerdy subculture :lol:).

    There are no ethnic subcultures at my school at all, I think. There are only two non-whites in my year, and they don't follow any racial subcultures :mmm:

    I honestly couldn't detail the cultural division in my year, although according to my friend in Year 10, my year is insane (not in a good way). But again, probably hyperbole.
