    yep!

    im okay with sociology and english, it's just politics.

    not sure if i should take the exam and get a bad grade or just do not take it and do it in june.
    Same!! I have a biology and history retake and i do not feel like i'm gonna get a good grade at all so i'm wondering whether i should just abandon it and do it in june.

    Personally I think I would revise your notes AND look at the mark schemes of the past papers but don't bother attempting the questions

    I have 7 exams.
    4 AS and 3 A2.
    2 of the AS are resits and I'm sitting the whole of AS gen studies (I've been given two offers that accept GS so I guess it matters now).
    I feel mostly prepared for my 4 AS ones and more than slightly nervous about my A2 ones. Hopefully with get 4 B's in my AS ones and at least BBC in my A2 ones so I have a chance of meeting my BBB offers

    Oh right some of that stuff looks useful but there's quite a lot unlike the AS summary type sheets! I will probably have a quick skim over it tomorrow, was tempted to print it all off but I am absolutely overwhelmed with paper work at the moment! Printed off waaaay too many things that I'll never have time to read!

    I am doing politics retakes this jan

    I paid for it already but tbh i don't think i am ready or will achieve a good grade.
    Do you think i should just leave it and retake them in june, or do the exams even though i will probs get a bad grade?
    exact same scenario here for PSYA3. have been entered but not gonna go. was in two minds at the time to leave it to June as well. I would leave it to June in your case.

    same here with PSYA3. June would be best for you but its your decision.

    what happens if you don't go. don't you get a u?

    also you might as well go you know, if you have paid, you never know, you could get a high grade. you can retake it if you do not do well.

    Finding it very hard to motivate myself to revise, but have been doing so, mostly notes and past papers. I've seen an improvement so that's helping the stress and anxiousness. Still feel like I haven't done enough, even though I'm doing a sold 1-2 hours, which is pretty much the maximum I can tolerate. I cannot see how people can do 3-4 hours a night...
