    Planning on hopefully starting on saturday till the holday finishes. At least 5 hours a day inshallah.

    I had to cancel my trip/holiday Dublin because of REVISION..... either I get into my desired university this year or possibly cry forever. I'd prefer the former.

    He has scored very highly in previous exams and so only needs low grades to push his overall UMS up to A grades.

    I need CBA to achieve AAA.
    :O Omg! You're sooooo lucky. I got ABB at AS, does that mean I don't necessarily have to do well in these June exams to maintain my grades ABB or even take it up to AAB?

    2 hours a day per exam from saturday - I see no reason why that won't be enough to secure 90%+ UMS.
    I've 3 exams aswell in June, but I definitely wouldn't settle for 2 hours a day... I wouldn't even do that at AS, at the finals for A2 I'd die if I did that lol

    You must be quite smart then? 2 of mine are repeats (Business Finance exam and Sociology Crime and Deviance Exam) then the third paper is the Sociology Media paper. I'm absolutely terrified. You got tips on your confidence? As all three of my exams are within 5 days of each other, I'm going to have to study all of them at once. Whereas previously I was able to study one at a time because they were fortunately well spaced out. I've no clue how I'm going to study them all at once, it's going to be a first time for me.

    Yeah, cause I take my education seriously
    The majority of us on this forum value our education. You're seriously wasting time by revising for GCSE's, they are a walk in the park compared to A-Level's; now they definitely require revision.

    If they are high grades then possibly not! I achieved 100% in my Psychology and Geography exam in January so that did push me up a lot. if you check with your individual teachers they should be able to find the exact information somewhere. Good luck!

    You're a real ****. Who the hell do you think you are? You're deluded if you think we are where we are in the world without people working hard.

    Idiot.

    You don't need to revise that much for GCSEs but you do need to read a bit. And don't put someone else down - no matter what stage they're at. I bet you revised for your GCSEs. It's a really good thing to develop a work ethic in GCSEs and build on that in A Levels, it'll help you massively. But for GCSEs, don't do 4-7 hours, that's for A Levels

    Thanks. I got 7A*s and 4As but I see now that all along I should have got Ds.
    Silly me. I could have done so much worse (or are you suggesting it was better for me to have done good?) If only I hadn't worked so hard? Where would I be now if only I hadn't worked so hard?


    Did you not do as well as you expected and are venting your anger at me?

    He isn't going to get a good job without work ethic. Arrogant little *******. It's at this stage in life ignorant people like him learn what the real world is like.

    Err... I've me GCSE's over and done with this good while now . I'm just stating that as the way you've worded your post, it's as if you're advising me on how to study for my GCSE's lol But no, I didn't revise for my GCSE's at all. Of course I had the intention, but I was in full blown procrastination mode during that period of time; thus no revision actually commenced.

    Also, you've interpreted my post wrong; I was advising the person to not put so much effort into their GCSE's, which could cause much unnecessary stress and instead reserve that for A-Level. I havn't a notion where you plucked the putting 'someone else down' part from, I don't recall saying anything along the lines of 'You're not worthy for further education if you have to revise for GCSE's' - now that would most definitely be considered as putting the person down.

    I know you done yours, but don't advise other people not to revise for theirs.

    He didn't say he was stressed, it's actually good for the guy to develop a good work ethic so he makes it easier for himself. I never said you was wrong, I just don't agree with sailing through GCSEs, yes it is simple but everyone is meant to pass them! A Levels do include tonnes of work, I know you said that but what I'm saying is it's good to develop a work ethic. That's all.

    You also said I was 'putting him down', which was entirely untrue. That's the point I'm getting at, rather than the whole GCSE is easier than A-Level which is quite irrelevant at this point.
