    I just have so much work to do, i started crying over it earlier. theres pressure for me to get AAB/ ABB and all A's in my AS retakes.
    I have 5 exams, and history coursework for january. and i have my A2work too
    Ive started As revision, but just lightly.
    The history coursework on Russia is teh biggest thig on my plate atm. Our teacher wants us to have our draft done by next week, knowing that the majority of us have not started the research we need out of 5-8 books.

    How do i read 5-8 books in a week and a half?! I know getting off tsr would be a good thing, but i stress alot, and this is the way i can let it out and feel better!
    I dont know how im going to do history coursework, as and a2 exams revision in december for jan any hope?
    Who else has this much, or more- how are you coping? any tips on how i cna cope?

    And i have an economics moc on thursday on the global economy case study (a2) tips on how i cna revise everything for thursday, i know nothing in eco.

    You HAVE to calm down. And I know that it is a lot easier said than done. You just need to find a correct balance (again this is difficult) I don't have it as bad as you, I have an AS retake in January and my English Lit A2 in January.. (and the coursework for which I should be doing now instead of being on here..) BUT you have to give yourself a break in between all the work you do, otherwise you will crack. And then you're no use to anyone. It'll be fine. Just revise for half an hour then spend ten minutes doing what you want, then return for another half an hour. AND be realistic with what you'll get done. I'm always saying I'll do this and that and this and that... and not even half of it happens. Now... back to my coursework I should go.. You'll see. It'll be fine! :hugs:

    I'm doing the sources one now, we did ours the other way round which I'm doing Emancipation. WWI was the example we got though for the part B (although our actual question was on whether 117 was a turning point)

    It's so so hard there's so much to do!

    I know ! it's so god damn hard! so so so much to do! I don't think i'm sleping, and i have a eco test on thursday, and my class is full of people who get A's all the time! It makes me feel horrible when i know NOTHING in eco. I'm watching eastenders atm, but hoping to start history around 10:30 (after i've done some eco to make me feel better)

    And our class just used ww1, lol my history teacher went to edexcel to complain about how they dont give enough information on their markscheme! They said we need about atleast 5 books for part b
