    Hi all fellow stressed out A Level (a.k.a social life killer, and satan's gift) participators.

    Which A Levels are you taking? How are you feeling about them?

    I think tonight I have hit the highs of stress and am going a little crazy :woo:

    Anyone else feeling it?

    I'm taking Biology, Chemistry, History and Psychology at AS. I'm worried about them all really, more so now that exams are getting closer.

    I'm also feeling the stress and I haven't been doing as much as I should, which isn't good. Hopefully I can start some revision and do more from tomorrow and stop wasting my time.

    At least I'm not alone with my a-level stress

    Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Psychology and I'm starting to feel uneasy in lessons a bit because it's hitting me now how close they are!!

    I think because we had no exams in January this year I have kind of forgotten we actually have exams at A level at least I know I'm not alone!

    I'm doing Economics, Chemistry, Maths and Physics all at AS. Physics was really stressing me out more than the others but now they're all kind of on the same level. I just wish I started earlier because I would probably be less stressed than I am now but ah well never to late to start I guess

    I agree, the content you have to remember is mad! Same for history too.

    Hopefully, AABB at AS and potentially A*AA-AAA at A2. If I start working more effectively, that is

    I do biology, chemistry, maths and geography and it's scary thinking how close it actually is until the exams! I try not to think too deeply about it though!

    Oh, yeah, I'm getting scared now even though it's only March! Definitely feeling it more in A2 than I did I'm AS, as stressful as AS was. I feel overwhelmed with information at the moment! So tonight I had a night off and just chilled, I think we need it every now and then otherwise we go snooker loopy!

    I'm at A2 doing Maths, Phys and English Lit I'm on 'meh, a little' right now but I should probably be higher. The most stressful thing right now if probably my English coursework but it means that I'm sort of forgetting/ignoring the three coursework-exam-things I've got in Physics coming up, my uni interview next week and the fact that I have crap memory but I need to memorize critical views, context and quotes from Oedipus Rex, King Lear and Wife of Bath in ye olde English for my exam which is probably going to be impossible. Thing is, I feel like I should be starting to stress and thinking about revision etc. but Amazon Prime just started that thing with Lovefilm so there's looooooaaaaaaaaaaads of 'free' films to watch before the price goes up...
