    I saw lab questions in your past post and assumed you did something science related but *pokes username* I see where that comes from now

    That's a nice alternative way to get into the degree. I always assumed that physics/maths was needed for computer science.

    50 miles by bus?! That's a pretty darn fast bus to get you there in an hour and a half :eek:
    Yup!

    Ohh, it's a specialised area of Comp Science (Network & Security). Damn right there's maths involved (Physics next year maybe), and it was a killer of a hurdle on the first year!! :P

    I should've included that I live between Gwynedd and Wrexham so it's around 20-30 miles for me.

    Not so much burnt out but uh..overwhelmed, yes.

    I'm sorry to hear that though- if you feel that'd help you then you should definitely do it!

    I sorted out my folders anddd now they're perfectly arranged. Then I wrote all my notes for Electrode potentials and managed to complete it.

    Cool, bedtime!

    I ended up starting at 10:30pm rather than 10:00pm but I spent 10 mins going over Chem unit 1 then completed the June 2013 past paper and got 69/70. - Lost a mark bc I condensed the bonds in the displayed formula question. I had some time left over so I did quite a few questions on Volume of revolutions, C4, from the textbook and now I am going to bed.

    But before I do I just kinda want to breathe out some thoughts.

    I genuinely think I sound/appear lyk I have no lyf. Well, I'm not trying to argue that I infact do have a life bc I don't and I don't care how secluded I become during these next few months tbh bc doing all this for the benefit of me.. well... I suppose I somewhat do care hence this post lol but anyway I'm just getting really scared. The annoying thing is, I feel like I'm getting nowhere with all this revision. There isn't a single unit out of the 16 that I'm feeling 190% confident with yet.. Like, I'll do really amazingly well one time then do absolutely drastically bad the next. I don't actually understand how it's possible to get an A* in one test then a U in another provided that both of them are testing exactly the same knowledge. That's how extreme it is and I'm just a bit, very, slightly worried lots.

    It makes me laugh.

    Rlly funny stuff.

    On the verge of hilarious.

    Another thing is I'm required to be totally finished with all my retake units before the holidays and I'm scared I won't get it done. Easter is, like, literally 2 days away and I only have so much energy after school to be able to do efficient revision for all of it and I don't even wake up early enough on the weekends anymore to fit lots in so I don't know if I'll have enough time to complete everything and if I don't complete it by that time then I'll have to do it during the holidays too and ofc, I don't want that to happen bc I need to be fully focusing on A2 stuff then but there's absolutely no chance I'm going to be able to complete over 100 past papers in 14/so days and I'm not even sure how many days we've got left tbh. Oh and I've just realised half of the days won't even be free for revision bc the EMPAs are, like, tomorrow and they're going to take up over a week since we need to be revising the topics that we'll be tested on which means less time for the other, perhaps more important stuff. I do understand the coursework is v important too though, which is why I need to place it as a priority atm. Ashjsdkdf.

    Well goodbye allllllllllllll, I'll just update the timetable in the OP before I go. Okay, I majorly apologise + promise I shall remain positive as of tomorrow bc no one wants to hear all this irritating, repetitive + tiresome negativity for, like, the billionth time in a supposedly motivating thread so anywayyyyyyYYYyYYyyYyYyy I'll probably be in here at 6:00pm (at the latest) bc I unfortunately get back from sixth form quite late. My target will be to do a Bio paper and it will be completed without any excuses.- Goodnight!
    OMG!! Honestly Anon you are really working hard and soo scheduled as you are! I self-study all day long but I ain't that much organized. Like I plan to do something in two hours but I just end up completing that in whole dayy!! sometimes it's too annoying...Maybe I should make a proper timetable now!! Just one and a half month from exams!!! what am I going to do???!!

    Yesterday wrote notes on everything to do with DNA from analysis to protein synthesis.

    Also finished homeworks on how electrical impulses move through the heart.

    Today I had 2 tutors so went through integration by substitution in maths and light dependant reactions of photosynthesis neither which I understood before the sessions.

    About to get my C4 mock back in lesson.

    Then later I will do a C3 mock, make follow up notes to consolidate light dependant photosynthesis and make notes and write a paragraph on pragmatics in child language development. Possibly too ambitious as I get distracted but I'll see.

    Almost finished lecture 2 :rofl: now must do the test and recap on the week.

    Also, apparently if you pay £10 million now for a deal that gives you 1 million a year until the end of time, you shouldn't take it.

    Time for a quick 5 minute break to play some xbox.

    Also, apparently if you pay £10 million now for a deal that gives you 1 million a year until the end of time (for some values of interest), you shouldn't take it.

    Time for a quick 5 minute break to play some xbox. turned into a 10 minute break

    Feeling slightly confused by some questions I'm doing, need to work on finding out how to do them. :sad: :hide:

    Thank you so much, + yeah, dw that happens to me too. I agree, it's all quite close now. If making a timetable would get you more focused then do it asap.- I made one last month and after committing to it for a couple weeks/so realized that I much prefer setting myself small daily goals. I mean, I'd get into "the zone" of doing chemistry work then I'd be forced to switch out of it bc continuing for an extra hour wasn't on my timetable etc so it all got a bit annoying but ofc, it might work for you + trying it out won't cause any harm!

    Just finished going through the first 4 pages of the section, I now thoroughly understand it and have notes to back it up, wow, what a difference an hour can make - I didn't realise how much I could achieve in what seems like such a short period of time!
