    In the same boat here!
    Firstly get some sleep, then set your alarm for nice and early in the morning- that way you can cram more.

    then that's too much, if you haven't learnt it in the past year you ain't gonna learn it now! and there's no point in stressing yourself out any more, just chill out have a decent sleep and have another go tomorrow

    well - sort out your routine - get 3 hours done in the morning and you feel much better.
    The only thing you can do is keep working at it, so go do that.

    harsh words...

    as for the last sentence... :rofl:


    advice... i'd leave it tbh and wake up early in the morning... if you have 5 or less hours sleep before an exam you wake up not knowing what planet you are on and even question if you are really here and not... certainly, in no fit state to do an exam! (not that this has ever happened to me, lol)

    I know it sounds like i'm being hysterical and bull****ting and being a drama queen but it is true. going online will probably calm me down a bit.

    or, perhaps, doing some more revision may be beneficial :rolleyes:

    The more you try to organise yourself the worse it becomes be unorthodox; you are unique. Be spontaneous.

    It sounds as if you're trying to achieve something which is near impossible, and your health will deteriorate as a result, duh!

    Do you have a friend or classmate you can learn with? Cramming absolutely sucks, but doing it with a friend on the same course actually works quite nicely, if you're both prepared to work hard and help each other out.

    I revised for one exam last semester in just a day and got an A- overall from it, but thats only because my coursework was top notch and I was simply 'revising' not learning from scratch whatsoever - very rare for me.

    If you can't do it, don't force yourself, you'll go mad and the stress may stay with you for a while after the exam too. Just revise as much as you can within your limits. Take some breaks, put things in perspective, exams aren't everything and failing them isn't the end of the world either - you'll have more time to perfect the subject. Seriously.

    You are clueless.. No matter how much revision he/she does if his/her mentality and beliefs are incorrect it wont matter.

    Driven by fear - is that what they taught you ?

    If you feel you have to cram now then you obviously didn't like the subject enough to learn it during the year so storing a load of stuff in short-term memory only to forget it within a few days says nothing about you.

    The point of education was supposed to teach us to learn and to think, your education seems to have had the opposite effect.

    rubbish - the stress is resulting from an apparent lack of knowledge, hence improving this is the best way to cure this. Simple.

    I very much like the subject. I'm alrite with it but im so frustrated by the fact that I found myself skipping some questions because i don't know how to do it(maths). Plsu the fact that i'm losing so many marks on the past papers because of sily errors which pisses me right off! Plus its the end for me if i don't meet my offers which is very frustrating. And fear....I'm not afraid, im frustrated.

    If you're not prepared then its your own fault. If you fail then its a sign that you weren't ready, and hopefully you'll learn your lesson for next time. I certainly hope you feel better, but cramming is always very stressful which is why it should be avoided at all costs unless you can handle it. :eek:

    How are you now, and how many days left? hang on, get off TSR and do some work! :P:
