    So far, i havn't made any notes for any of my A2 and 1 AS retake exams in june.
    I just feel very bad everytime i go to bed, wak eup go to my lessons, and sit there knowing i havnt made any notes for this subject.
    Even if we're leaning new stuf..
    im sitting there just noting whats on the board, what teh teacher says.
    my pol notes are alright and organised..but my economics, i'm just doing so so bad.

    Exams are getting closer, and i'm just feeling scared. I know i've got soo much work to do.


    Has anyone else not made any notes yet?

    I have 6 exams.

    However, uptill monday...i have been busy with my history coursework, accomodation choices, student finance. I havn't come home earlier than 6 so far all week, as i've been trying to find a job. :/

    I dunno, just feel bad Guess im lookign for reasurance that it will be okay

    Obviously i want to do well, better than well in my exams..but so far ive done no work. just a bit of notes in pol unit 3 :/

    I feel exactly the same. It's stupid really; now I have my offers you would think that I would be trying my hardest to make sure I meet them. Instead, I partially listen in lessons, do no revision, little homework and I am falling behind in coursework.

    Every night I lie in bed thinking, 'Why am I doing this to myself?'
    Every morning I wake up thinking, 'Ok, fresh start! I will try my hardest from now on!'

    Ughhhhhhhh! I think I'm under a lot of stress at the moment.

    I hope you dont mind me asking, but what grades did you get at AS Level? Because I worked out that because I got AAB, I only need BBD respectively to keep this up. It might be a similar situation for you?

    Uou must understand that many of TSR's members are, in some respects, academic super-nerds that try really, really hard and have been revising for summer exams since the end of January.
    I was all :eek3: when I read that, until I realised I started revising for June's STEP in January, and then I was like :blushing:

    Dude!
    This is way to early to star the panic mode, save it until 2 weeks before the exam.

    I don't take any notes really, I just basically rewrite the revision book in the two weeks before the exam.

    Also, the few notes I do take are essentially incoherent and unintelligible.

    Yeah...my point is, if you're really hung up on the note taking thing, grab a revision book and just take light notes for now, then start the real serious revision during/after Easter.

    Good luck!
