    Started all the notes Mid-Feb and have finished them all except Biology unit 5 (im half way)
    Hoping to just bang out loads of past papers this Easter holidays.
    Im pretty nervous about Chemistry!!
    hahaha!! this is just hilarious good luck lol. I'm assuming you're year 13 not 12?

    I'm doing 5 subjects. and 8 exams.
    finished bio revision (mostly) cramming during easter chem/phys/maths lol I'm so behind on my revision timetable, and I'm sat on this forum chillin' 8-)

    yeah OCR ah fair enough, did you put critical analysis stuff in though? yeah im jealous, I wanted that one! hoping for A Terre or Apologia though

    tbh im more worried about maths A2 exams
    I was really hoping for one of them, can't say I was a fan of Insensibility :/
    & after doing an amazing essay for poetry, Gatsby was all downhill from there really.. I wittered on and on, forgot to put quotes in, forgot to tell the examiner which bit of the text I was referring to, I think I only made about two pages before giving up. I think the only reason I got a good mark on both essays was because it was a "to what extent does X show this" question and I went the route of saying "X doesn't show that at all!"
    I'm really worried about coursework though, it's something i've always done badly on. I'm supposed to be writing it right now :rolleyes:
    I'm sure you'll be fine, good luck

    Biology (OCR): I'm getting through the content, slowly. I've made notes on 17/101 sub-sections.

    101 subsections?! How have you got that many?

    11 exams in may... i know all of biology to some extent (ha) but i know nucleic acids, enzymes and biodiversity/speciation very well...

    I've learnt and can apply the majority of the formulas i'll need in core 2 maths, +logs and indices
    I can't remember much at all of core 1, and still can't believe i crashed and burned so hard in the exam...

    Chemistry i've done bits as i go along, finally learnt titration calculations and yeah, i'm not far into this one.

    Spanish, i've written answers to all of my oral questions but i haven't learnt them yet...

    Japanese - HAHAHA this one will be written off, unless i suddenly find a week of free time or something.

    cant even imagine getting something like the last laugh/arms and the boy haha, if they did that....

    ahh well you got an A so there must have been something right in gatsby! poetry is so much easier i think so you do your course almost backwards? exam first then coursework? Ahhhh i much prefer coursework, got full marks in it which is good, what texts are you doing for it?

    I have 10 exams in May and only started properly revising last week. I think with maths and physics it's just a case of doing past papers and making sure I get my exam technique right. I have so much to learn for history though

    I have 13 exams from 5 subjects (stupid double maths with its 7 exams) - lots of people seem to be finishing their exams before half term, yet I have 6 of my 13 exams after half term, going on to the 22nd of June, which spreads out my revision priorities somewhat

    Have you got the OCR textbooks? I'm basing those numbers on the index page.

    Currently I'm going through the textbook making notes. At the end of each module I'm doing my school's set questions. Once I've done a whole unit I'll do some past papers.

    27/36 and 0/65 so far. Slightly worrying!

    How about you?

    I actually thought i'd been given a pair when I first opened it, then realised I was on a different author..
    We did our course backwards so everyone had two chances at the exam, because it's worth more, and because they can't mark coursework, people were handing in bad essays and then doing the same thing in the exam. The results have so far come out so much better this year, so somethings got to be working
    I'm doing Enduring Love and The Collector for my comparative essay, and then Tony Harrison for my clos analysis.. both boring

    I have written down about 10 dates for history. That is it. I am going to do more though, I'm starting revision from today onwards! I have 4 exams in Summer but I have a drama practical as well which is taking up loads of my time after school.
