    Very true!
    Oh no me neither. It's so difficult to wait, and the added pressure of UCAS this year is going to drive me insane!

    Going to have to think up some things to do over the summer to distract myself (particularly seeing as I won't have revision to do any more!)

    Hard! But not as hard as the six markers!


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    The 6 markers can be dealt with by revisiting past papers to create mark-scheme 6-marker revision notes, so you're literally revising the mark scheme. But multiple choice are around a minute a mark, and at times can be difficult to see, taking up time and water capacity in my tear ducts when I cri #drymass

    Apparently we aren't doing ours until after Easter, or so we were told by our teacher today.

    This year with a bonus month or so! Sounds like a good idea, can't really do that at my job though :/ Might reread game of thrones, certainly don't have the time or left over brainpower to do that during revision season!

    I'm a little worried that he's going to leave it too late though for preparation, we're supposedly finishing unit 5, having an astro test, doing who knows what until nearer easter, having a unit 5 mock, and then starting EMPA prep and doing it after Easter.

    17 weeks today until my - probably our? - last exam (... considerably less until my first).

    Got a new seating plan as well and it's not that it's bad but my old table was great

    Oh wow it sounds very busy for you!
    Ah, if you discount the EMPA, my first exam is Core 3 (Friday 5th June) and my last exam is Computing CG3 (Tuesday 23rd June). Eek!
    It's annoying how it's so busy on two of the weeks then there's a week in between of nothing!
    Oh no! My teacher messes around with the seating plan so often that I swear I've sat next to everyone in the class now haha!

    Well there's a couple of weeks that are completely unaccounted for for some reason but otherwise yeah!
    First is 13th May (FP3), last is 22nd June (M2). I think my first 5 exams are all Maths. I've got a much nicer timetable than last year - FP3 weds 13th, FP4 weds 20th, another two weeks free because of half term until S1 weds 3rd, FP1 and C3 fri 5th, Chem unit 4, PHYA4 and S2 the next week, PHYA5, chem 5, FP2 the week after and then M2 to finish. Much less squashed than last year, once FP3 and 4 are out of the way (the hardest maths exams, S1, S2, M2 and FP1 are all pretty easy) I've got a few weeks to just revise in peace!

    My other teachers either have no seating plan, or never change it but don't mind if we move.
