    During the week, how many hours do you spend a day studying. I'm more interested in knowing about A2 students. But AS students are more than welcome to enlighten us!

    At uni now, but still. My subjects were english lit/biology and chem at A2. Unless I had homework, the only work I did towards them was in lessons and then I had a crazy stressful couple of weeks before exams revising under conditions of sleep deprivation and wanting to murder anyone who came near me.

    Probably not a sensible approach to studying, but it's always worked for me :')

    I can't motivate myself to do work unless I'm stressed out over it because I've left it until the last second.

    I basically thought the same thing and only came out with B's and C's. Sure, it works for maybe 10% of the population, but the rest of us have to study hard. I think you should probably keep up with everything. So this year I've been working really hard, retaking all my AS's as well.

    Haha, now that it's close to my exam time, I feel like I covered all my revision months ago and I find myself procrastinating a lot more! What course at uni are you doing now?

    Thing is i really want to revise because i want to do good but i cannot find any motivation at all. I said i would start revising at the start of the holidays and now it is the night before.

    Basically i am too lazy for life.

    Genetics at the uni of York. I wanted to do veterinary, but I didn't get in so I'm gonna do it as a graduate

    Well, that's good then you sound quite prepared! I knew practically nothing right up until the point close to my exams :P Not that I'm one to offer advice on revision, but you could just do like 15 mins an hour or something. If you do it in short bursts you're less likely to die of boredom
