    Yes same, I don't want to fail and I know if I get on with revision I can do well...but I honestly cannot be bothered to do anything! I have no idea how to get out of this mindset. Thank you, and you!
    Same... I guess you have to have a specific goal to get something you really want and I dont have that... The people that know exactly what they want to be, seem to be the ones working towards that.

    thanks

    But do you get past questions specifically on that topic or just do a whole paper? Cause i cant do whole papers until i have actually learn everything
    well im on aqa, so i have exam questions at the end of each topic, so i do them, then leave the past papers til ive revised everything

    also i trwal through old paper questions our school have given us, they really help, as quite of those old questions have come up in my papers now!

    Also, do you guys find that past exam paper questions help the most and are usually the ones that come up on the real exam?

    Maths and sciences? Find the PAST PAPERS AND DO THE LOT AGAIN AND AGAIN!
    But seriously past papers are really useful, do a paper, review the marks you dropped, try and do the paper again without dropping those marks.

    That's so true, it doesn't help that I have no idea what I want to do at uni. Damn A levels

    not sure. Durham definitely. Been around a couple of times as my brother goes there (hes graduating in june) and its such a wonderful place.

    other than that, im going for a week at Leicester in july for interdisciplinary sciences so maybe there if i like it.

    the main ones that everyone applies to from what ive seen is durham, bath, ucl so maybe them. and you cant forget the all almighty cambridge :eek:
