    That's all positive advice guys!!

    Find some way to enjoy doing it i guess... that way it will be something you actually want to do instead of something you just have to do. I had a friend who made up songs and stuck up colourful signs all over her bathroom to help her revise Chemistry and Biology. Maybe that might work? :confused: It surely helped her! she got all A's at A-level Chemistry, Biology, Math and General Paper.

    I personally never bothered with that kinda stuff. I find that studying in groups makes it a lot more fun than trying to study by yourself (which is mostly no fun at all, so i suppose anything else would be a lot more fun). So I would say try to find yourself in a study group. That's one of the best things to do in my opinion.

    I look at the future and weigh up the options: its either B&Q or a nice flashy car, millions of birds, a mansion and a business empire....somewhere between the 2 seems acheivable Its all material gain anyway (ohh, that sounds a bit lefty for me)
