    Does anyone else have mock exams coming up soon? Mine are in late November.
    Not so soon - mine are in early january!
    Kind of annoying as it basically ruins your christmas - i don't think school knows that we do have lives...

    Good luck for yours

    EDIT: Saw the other posts - feel sorry for me... and they're all in a period of 10 days (with what one weekend in there somewhere?) - guess they want to us to feel ultra stressed so the actual exams feel better - still.

    I'm not the best at composition but I've improved a lot since theory. Do you have one music exam, or is it based on practical work?

    Glad you're enjoying it
    I have a listening exam and the rest is practical - I can't remember the weightings but it's heavily in favour of practical, understandably. I'm on Edexcel. Theory makes the listening so much easier though

    If I do, I don't plan it out like, "I'll do this from 10-11", because I don't stick to it. I just plan what topics I need to do each day and work through it in my own time. I find topic based plans so much better than time based plans

    Ah okay, that's quite a good way to do it, I might try it In the past I tried to plan it like, "I'll start revising Spanish at 2" and it never worked!

    Oh no, that's really annoying! Thank you, good luck for yours too! I think mine are only for about a week, or maybe a bit longer.

    Have you got your timetable for mocks yet? Maybe not since you're doing them a bit later, but my school told us they would give us our mock timetables as early as possible to reduce our stress but we're breaking up for half term tomorrow and we still haven't gotten them

    No, I haven't - probably after christmas seeing as their aim seems to be to stress us out
    Hopefully you'll get them tomorrow but don't worry about it! Everything will be happy and dandy in the end :cool:

    (Why are we talking about PMS.... gawd, this is awkward... but haha, I know, i know.... - still good excuse for being moody and horrible to people :P)
    Do you find talking about PMS awkward? I stopped caring because I realised it happens to 50 odd percent of the population so there shouldn't really be a taboo. Understandably people get uncomfortable about other stuff but talking about just PMS isn't that bad tbh

    Haha, last year my teachers were trying to stress us out for the end of Year 10 exams but now they're trying to calm us down and telling us not to worry too much about mocks :confused:
    Yep, hopefully both our schools will give them to us fairly soon!

    Same. Do you think they'll be past papers?
    Yeah that's what our teachers said. I think they'll be the ones the current year 12 did because they aren't out to the students yet but teachers have access.

    It's so annoying when teachers stress you out by not giving you timetables.

    All our teachers are telling us to do is yoga to try and destress xD

    Oh our schools like that. Especially the science department, they're right scaremongers about tests. Just because they're the biggest department... *sigh*

    Haha, reminds me of my chemistry teacher... Someone asked why the topic was so difficult and I quote: "It's not hard if you're clever. I find it easy. (that modesty) If you're a student, then you'll find it difficult." I mean, thanks for insinuating that we're stupid...?
    Teachers fail at making you feel better...

    I guess going to a girl's school means that we don't really think about it as much and it's awkward to talk about because we know that everyone in the year experiences it?
    That and the fact I find a lot of things incredibly awkward :P My awkwardness tolerance level is so low it's not even...
    And true, there's worse things to talk about.

    I feel for you.... It sounds like my end of year 10 exams, only more painful because we've learnt more course material now.
    That and hand cramp.
    Hope you live. Good luck.

    When are the mocks?

    Just remember that in the exam, you'll regret not revising...

    Unless you're a genius or have an eidetic memory of course.

    Ahaha, i suck at motivating others.

    To anyone who is doing AQA A Geography, have you learnt about glaciers in physical geography? My class completed it last year but our teacher left out glaciers, weather and few other things that are on the specification but he says that's the physical completed?
