    Tonight I was revising and I started off with a past paper and I had a good feeling about it as I went through and I was proper happy about how well I was doing. It turned out I got an A on the paper and so I was right to be proud.
    I then looked at the parts I went wrong and made a few notes from my textbook and other resources and then when I went to do another past paper I was doing OK but nowhere near as good. And when I tried to start another one I was just losing silly marks, I hadnt even been revising for that long at all really, probably about 3 hours but already I was struggling as if I was completely exhausted.

    Id been to college today and had a full day so I was expecting to be tired and a bit reluctant but its never happened before, its really knocked my confidence and now im literally ******** myself about this exam on Wednesday cus I know I could do it on one paper but wasnt able to reproduce it any point tonight.

    Any advice or tips? I dont want it to have a negative affect on me tomorrow, and do you think tomorrow will be much better? It seemed like I was struggling on the easy questions but I know I can do it, surely I didnt just get lucky on one paper!?

    Yes, take the day off tomorrow to revise for you exam, if you don't want to feel bad about it. I've already taken 2 weeks off. Tomorrow will most likely be similar to today, maybe not...

    Just take the day off tomorrow and don't stress yourself out too much!

    Just like the above poster, I've hardly been coming in for the past several days of college because frankly I feel your exams are more important! Look through any mistakes you are making....If they are ALL silly mistakes, then you just need to work on taking your time!

    But if they are fundamental mistakes like not understanding a particular topic or such! You should practice a few of them from the book to become more familiar with them!!
