    the 18th is heaps of time, don't go camping, if you work 6/7 hours a day and try and condense your modules down and revise them according to priority and time till the exam I'm sure you'll be able to do it!

    No.. don't look for excuses to give up now.. you'll probably regret it when you have to retake stuff.. Just concentrate for a few days and then you can relax for the whole summer

    It's never too late for revision, try to concentrate on revision and forget about everything else until the exams over.

    If you have a good knowledge of the subject already, 3 days hard revising (for one paper) is enough to do well on an exam. Doing a practice paper under exam conditions that you have not done before is a good way of telling that you are ready.

    Most of the things i remember in exams are things ive learnt in the few days leading up to the exam...think my short term memory is better than long term!!

    Firstly DON'T PANIC, you have plenty of time to revise.

    Pull out the subject specification and do summary notes for each bit and highlight the bits you've covered. Write key points on little cue cards - what subjects are you doing?

    You've got ages. For GCSE I just revised the day before and ended up with A*s in most subjects. Think what you can do in over 2 weeks. What I do is make the notes, and memorise each paragraph 1 by one, then just recall it, so you'll only have to revise everything once, and just recall it in your head to make sure you don't forget it.

    & everyone always downplays the emount they've done to their peers.. but unless you revise in fornt of people, how will they know anyway?

    my the same token..money doesn't tell everything..but i think there might be a slight correlation with happiness! & to do certain things in later life good grades are necessary..so if you don't bother you might always be left wondering what you could have achieved..

    Don't go! Try and believe in yourself and be as motivated as possible (i.e by starting the revision now). The minute you start working hard, the more confident and better you will feel about the exam!

    Good luck!
