Why panic? General studies means nothing, no universities look at it, it isn't a real A-level for crying out loud, if you don't get a grade that you want just decline it and they will never know you took it.

Not really, don't worry about it. The languages paper is multiple choice, then you answer ONE essay question from a huge selection. The second paper is maths/science - just remember to take a calculator. Nothing to worry about AT ALL!

I have AQAB U4+U5 tomorrow and must admit i'm not looking forward to it. I'd rather do further maths P6!
I just can't stand having to waffle essays for 2.5 hours when I haven't learnt anything for the subject as there's actually no proper content to learn. The specification itself is waffle.

Not really. I know a few people and have heard of lots of people who have got into courses by missing a grade in one subject but made it up by a high grade in gen studies. Ok, not really valid for very over subscribed courses like Medicine or Law but a lot of unis will take it into consideration. That doesnt mean there's a need to panic though of course. You can't really revise for it unless you want to top up on the french/spanish/german skills. The essays arent even a test of knowledge, just a test of how well someone can construct a coherent argument.

Just remember with the essays:

Intro
Point for
Another point for
Point against
Another point against
Conclusion

and you should be fine. I find Gen.Studs helps relieve the pressure of the other exams, and the German bit is a little extra practise for my big German exam on Thursday!
