    All very impressive, but IB trumps the lot. 15 exams within 21 days.

    lol it really doesn't sound like a lot of fun.

    Tbh it's the same with Alevels and retakes - for a lot of us (specially me!) it's that I didn't revise enough in the first place, so I really shouldn't be allowed to complain :p:

    5, including an oral exam :awesome: I won't do any retakes in Summer and my subjects don't have many exams anyway, though my school has no January first-sittings, it's just retakes in Jan.

    How do some people have so many?
