    I'm doing AS Levels in English Language and Literature, Psychology, Sociology and Law - and my mock exams start on the 9th, I'm absolutely terrified and have had panic attacks almost everyday over the Christmas Holidays.

    Whilst I feel confident in English and Psychology - I know I'm going to fail the Law and Sociology mocks.

    When I look back on previous questions for Law, I just completely freak out and forget everything.
    I literally have NO IDEA of how to answer them, and with the mock looming around the corner I feel like all I can do is sit and wait to fail whilst praying I don't get kicked off of the course.

    As for Sociology, I have barely done any revision at all, as I left my folder, book, and textbook at College over the break and have nothing to work from! (I know - it's really bad, isn't it?)

    Is there anyway to save myself from failing now? Please help - If you have any revision tips or stories regarding how you survived your mocks that would be amazing - thank you!

    They're mocks- you're meant to identify your areas of weaknesses and work on them in time for the exams. Try to be calm and look at the past papers if you're not sure on how to answer the questions.

    Try revise as much as you can from now. You still have another week left of the holidays. Also it doesn't matter (much) if you fail your mocks because it's not the real thing so don't worry too much dear There are many resources online and on getrevising (what I use)

    I don't set myself time constraints in terms of revision - I set myself targets for how much I get done - but, I'd say 8 hours a week for Law?

    Hi. Firstly, don't give up. If you act now, you can still pass your mocks. I'd suggest you look at your mark schemes for your exam board's papers & try and find out where the marks are being allocated. Look through 3-4 past papers. Sometimes you can also find youtube videos of how to answer the questions, so have a look through.

    Another thing you should do is look at examiner reports & support/exemplar material. Those two resources are really important and they have a lot of tips on how to structure answers. Just make sure you get your techniques right, quality is better than quantity when revising. Good luck.
