    Now that the exams are about a month away I want to know how everyone is feeling. Is anyone confident? Well I am freaking out :bawling:, I have no idea where this year went, it feels like yesterday I started 5th year and now it's exam time!

    Tell me about it, I said to myself at the start of the year that I would have plenty of time to prepare for my exams. God knows where the time has went.

    I think I will be confident about maths if I get a good paper 1 so I can pick up a lot of marks. I am pretty confident about geography, it's just simple memorising so if I can memorise most of it I think I should be fine. Biology I think I should be fine with but it's English and chemistry I am worrying about

    For unit 3 I can do Hess's law fine. Equilibrium, acids and bases and redox are mostly fine. The chemical industry is boring but meh. If it is electrolysis, I can only do the calculations. That is all we done in class, we didn't do anything to do with cells and stuff and I was doing a past paper and couldn't do it And I can't do the nuclear chemistry to save myself (apart from the beta and alpha radiation because that is just like adding 1 or taking away 4 or 2).

    Unit 3 maths I think is ok, logs are probably my biggest worry from that unit, if it is a hard log question then I'm screwed, but I can do the basics.

    Not a lot lol I've started to study more nowadays but still I feel like I am lacking but I'm trying my best so hope it works. And no I have biology on the 15th Is English your first?

    Hard log questions are MADE UP of the basics! believee moi, they are easy, do them all, then you'll feel confident!

    i just can't wait till i never have to do english ever ever ever again, seriously, english is my first exam, but after that's over, I'll feel like I'll have none left.... roll on 21st may!!!!

    Calculations in unit 1 are my weakness no matter how hard I try I always get them wrong. I haven't even looked at unit 3 maths yet and whenever I try to study I always get distracted, so far I have only done 3 maths PP over easter holidays. I AM SO FAILING!

    What do you mean by 'What'?

    Can you not comprehend simple English?

    No, I can. However, I don't think you can read as at the top of the page it says 'Scottish Qualifications'!!!

    Yea it's on the 20th, but I guess that the 21st will be my first full day without having to do any english. You'd rather chew on your foot? chewing on your foot isn't that bad, if it's clean :P

    I suck at calculations and PS questions. And I am not good at applying knowledge to exam questions in maths
