    Hey guys,
    I've been looking at my exam timetable for May and June and its mad!
    On the 11th of June I have 4 exams
    -A2 Philosophy (1 hour 30 mins)
    -A2 Ethics (1 hour 30 mins)
    -GCSE Maths linear calculator (2 hours)
    -Business Unit 3 (1 hour 45 mins)

    Just the thought of that exam day makes me feel uneasy.
    I suppose I'm going to have to be kept in isolation for the whole day xS

    Anyone else got any mad exam days..

    GCSE Maths and A2 Philosophy...

    What?

    Tbh, the GCSE Maths won't be a problem at all and you will be monitored all day, yes.

    All I can say is good luck.

    Yeah in retaking GCSE Maths again from scratch to get a B minimum because I got a C in year eleven and my firm wants a B.

    I secretly want an A though but a B would be ideal.

    And thanks I will truly need it.

    Honestly, you can get an A!

    Go for it.

    Lotsa papers and I mean lotsa them.

    I got an A* and all I did was learn how to do content and practice on like 10-12 papers.

    My teacher was very supportive holding sessions for us to do the papers in and providing us with all the papers.

    I now do A-level Maths and love it.

    Go for it. :woo:

    This year I don't have any horrible days - last year I had 2xRS exams and one history one all on the same day. However, I will have my three biggest exams on three consecutive days, but after last year that's not too hard.

    I think when I checked, mine are all in one week this year. Last year I had both my Geography exams one after the other, and my last two were Economics, also both one after the other. Urrgh.

    I've been rather lucky with my exams it seems, C1 and C2 seem to be nicely spread out (half term in the middle IIRC) as with my two history exams. Only have one day with more than one exam which is my last day of exams, if you take out half term all my exams are over two weeks :yes:

    Awww, don't worry, it will be ok, if that can make you feel better I used to have exams that were 4h long, sometimes followed by 3h-long exams, and some HE schools keep their students doing exams for 8h straight (on the same subject). At least once it's done you can celebrate

    You can have a look on http://www.modernisationonline.org.uk/comptimetable/ but it helps if you know exam boards, spec (for some subjects)

    I thought there was a maximum to the amount of exam hours you can take in a day?

    My subjects aren't very exam-heavy, I have 7 exams. They are all really far spread out, apart from 2 written exams on the same day - sod's law!
