    I'm having trouble studying with all the homework that teachers are dumping on me. I haven't found the time to study at all, and I have 12 days until my English HL.
    And I always seem to be doing homework until midnight-ish. Damn these teachers!
    Well, I culd be studying now...oh, wait! I have an essay to write. >.>

    But I think I'm just going to spend all next week on English, since its the first. Then the next week and 3/4 ish on HL history, with a bit more of english. THen that may 16 week all on HL biology...then I'm done

    :O you guys don't?! So you have school until right before exams start?!!
    whoa, sucks for you guys. I thought 1 week study leave was really little, since we used to get like 1 month.

    Im starting to study now with 10 days left but I'm really not worried. Our school scores an average of 6 on HL Econ, 6 in HL Americas and nearly 1 point above the world average in HL english.

    Speaking of english though, how are you guys preparing for paper 1? I really don't care about my SL subjects, so I expect to drop to a 6 in Studies, lie my way through the systems exam, and get drunk before writing Spanish!

    what?!! All week for English?:eek: Are you taking A1 or A2?
    We only prepare for English one day before at A2 (though we don't really worry about it) and manage to get good marks. But we study it more than our A1 langauge, Arabic, which we study even less for. Don't know about you, but languages aren't that hard

    A2, but I don't have any other exams that week, so not much else to do.

    For GCSEs, I just went through and wrote out all my notes, but I've found that I neither have the time to do that nor does it actually work for IB..
    English, I've written out quotes on flashcards and stuck them around my room, and have done past papers.
    Maths... A LOT of past papers
    Chemistry + Biology - flashcards, diagrams, mindmaps, notes, past papers...
    French - vocab cards and past papers
    History - mindmaps and essay plans, reading through and highlighting old essays etc..

    Somehow IB pickup lines help me remember things.

    Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle Pickup Line:
    "Hey babe, I don't know my position with you, but trust me, I certainly know we have momentum!"
    Or alternatively,
    "Hey babe, I dunno what kinda momentum we have, but I know what kinda position I like you in!"
