    i had 17 last year and it wasn't THAT bad - just make sure you're organised and you start revising early...
    By the way that was my AS year - but i did 2 full A levels and 2 AS levels - we weren't allowed to sit any modules in january...

    Don't worry about it! You'll end up where you're meant to.

    You can do it though, just learn the exam technique and use your short-term memory for content.
    Lemme guess, you do psychology for a-level?:p:

    It's not impossible, alot of schools take AS and A2 all at the end of Year 13 Summer, which is quite crazy, but as they're retakes, you'll just need to ensure you know the specification well. Go through as many past papers as possible and look at the mark schemes too! The record holder for most A-Levels did 23 subjects. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...-A-levels.html

    That's insane! My school doesn't even allow us to sit modules in Jan so I don't even get the chance to mess them up! I have to sit all A2s this summer.

    I do OCR maths, it was the schools policy that our AS and A2s were all gonna be sit together in June 2010, but only November 2009 last year did the head decide to put everyone in for their AS's in Jan 2010, so it was quite a short time to revise and very little warning. So I wouldnt be surprised if many of the other students at my college have to resit these exams again in June 2010 along with their A2s. So no one else has this policy?

    I had about 19 during A2s I think so I totally know how you feel. It all worked out okay in the end- just make sure you start revising fairly early and don't panic. It's perfectly doable!
