    If you don't get C it will be hard to get a job, get a place on most courses in Uni .. i am facing the problems of that right now, and wish i had actually revised for the test, it don't even have to be a lot of revision ... just 10 or 20 minutes reading over notes etc will take you a long way (Y)

    Well I hated science,
    but the fact I needed it to do Psychology motivated me to revise etc.

    Well, I sort of saw it as letting the ****** subject get the better of me if I were to do bad in it, which I obviously didn't want.

    Think of your essays as your life, if you don't do well overall C/B minimum, endgame to be frank.

    Quite simply, the thought that i'll never have to analyse a full stop in a poem as signifying the end of the world ever again is keeping me going
