    AAB isn't too hard for you.

    You can't be that stupid if you were accepted onto a course for those grades, so just do some work and get the grades....

    What I mean is that if you're accepted onto an AAB course, then with some work you can get AAB. You're smart enough.

    Basic business studies will tell you something about efficiency. When you're working beyond a certain point, you're not going to be as efficient, and your overall output will actually be lower than if you worked less hours.

    You can do it!! Pressure is the best motive for revision, trust me I know. This pressure will push you to work your best! Take a deep breath, and organise a revision plan. You'll do it

    I have reported your post for offensiveness. Please refrain from such rudeness in the future, would you?

    If you are perhaps jealous of my achievements, I would be happy to give advice on how to get half-decent grades!
    My life goes on. And i'm perfectly happy with my grades.

    Revision plans are pretty useless. Just work when you feel like it and be sensible about it. That's how I get my straight A/A* grades.

    Just stating the truth. If you get accepted onto an AAB course, you're most likely capable of achieving those grades. Do some work, then, and you'll get them. Stop crying on TSR about it.

    It's also insensitive to mock other people with your low offers - how do you think us who are aiming for good courses would feel if we weren't intelligent enough to do some work to achieve our A*A*A*A-A*A*AA?
    Please stop boasting about your grades, everyone has their own personal goals. It doesn't mean that they have to work any less to achieve them.

    Of course your life goes on. Why wouldn't it? Anything to the contrary would imply that my reporting of your post resulted in some sort of long-distance manslaughter, which is absurd.

    Did you achieve straight A*s at GCSE and 100% at AS/A2-level? If not, why would you be happy with your grades? I say that there's always room for improvement, and there's no shame in asking us high achievers for some help

    Im doing all cie. It drives me crazy. But i understand your situation. Just study hard but when you can't breath and what you're studying doesn't make sense, take 5 minutes off. It helps fr me. Sometimes studying for longer hours doesn't mean you are studying more.

    Ok, read and follow these steps:

    1) Shut up and calm the **** down.
    2) Create a proper revision timetable, short working periods of around 40 minutes with a break between each one, and don't overload in a day. You don't need to be doing 12 hours work, aim for at most 10 sessions a day, that will give you just shy of 7 hours revision.
    3) Get into a proper routine, go to bed early, get a full nights sleep, and aim to start revision at the same time each day.
    4) Find a revision method that works for you. It's no good just sitting and reading through papers if you don't learn that way, you need to find a way that works properly for you. Personally I first go through and rewrite all of my notes in a more compressed form, then I do a few past papers using my notes when I need them, and then I do a few more papers without using my notes. I then go back over the papers, see where I've made mistakes, and go over the relevant sections in the notes.

    Revision isn't a complicated process, you just need to stay calm, find a method that works for you, and use your time efficiently.
