    Me thinks a gap year is ur best bet mate. I know someone who did 15, got like C s in all of them due to workload. He was really bright! Might as well do half get A s and do the rest the year after. You ptobably havent done as bad as you think!

    It shouldn't be too bad. You just got to make sure you know your stuff, which means you've got to work hard now. Make sure you understand everything now so when it comes to revision it's just learning the stuff rather than teaching yourself it.

    Impossible to contemplate! 18 as/a2 exams is just incredibly difficult becoz you'd be killing yourself with revision alone!

    If it were me, I would consider deferring half of them, or more, until next jan/june.
    It would be very difficult to achieve *good* grades in that many exams at once and still have some sort of a life outside of revision for about three months.

    Tbh I'd never be able to pull that many exams off, I'd just kill myself with the thought of it. I don't know about you guys but the amount of work that I need to put into a subject/topic area/unit to get a decent mark, so that times 18 is just :eek3:

    You can do it though, just learn the exam technique and use your short-term memory for content.
