    Yes, it's that time of year again folks.

    Doing 2 A-Levels in one year I have two As level exams in May and then 5 A2 in June and very early July.

    Did an As module in January and got an A, got a solid B (I think) in my English coursework.

    Despite the above I am still on edge now we are hitting the exam period.

    How is everyone else coping?

    oh i haven't even looked at the A2 part yet!!!!!!! they've been doing it in class but i hardly go. Stupid doing AS and A2 in one year.

    I find the best way to do well is not to know the course but know the last couple of past papers off by heart.

    As I am doing two A-Levels in one year we have to trim the syllabus and basically for Government & Politics we dont cover two of the subject areas. This means that you either learn it yourself or you just go into the exam knowing that instead of answering two from 5 or 6 you are answering 2 from 4 or 5 as you will know sod all about one subject area.

    Didnt matter at As as I still got an A and managed to avoid the question on the judiciary.

    Due to the fact that they are one-year A-Levels but cover two years worth of syllabus we teach right up to the exams which is kinda weird when you are still learning new stuff like 2/3 weeks before you are due to sit the paper.

    I was 22 years old when I started my A-Levels and a two year course would have probably put me off or made it a very long, drawn out process especially as I have been working at the same time.

    The option of taking the one year courses appealed to me.

    My dad has even disencouraged me from seeing my (now ex) girlfriend as it was a distraction from my A-level studies.(apparantly). The fact that we broke up was nothing to do with my dads wishes though.

    I am wondering if he will "allow" me to have girlfriends through uni and when I graduate or will it affect my degree and subsequent job?
