    Lol, I'm just lucky geography was a piss easy paper. I did no revision and got one mark off a C for module 1 in January, so I need to murder it this time around.
    I get really hacked off when I devote the little time I do spend revising on learning hard stuff - then the stuff just doesn't turn up in the exam! It's a bloody annoyance, lol.

    yes - its annoying isnt it, but you still have to learn the hard stuff...what board are you doing for economics?

    and still got an A or B?

    ive started revising kinda late for biology and psychology and am cramming stuff ive not even learnt before.
    the thing is though, im quite confident i know the stuff even though ive only learnt it once coz im repeating it to myself quite a lot
    Honestly, I think you should be fine. Remember to familiarise yourself with the paper formats though! Timing is essential. Lots of people get into the trap of writing too much for one question, and completely leaving out another. Remember, there are opportunity costs for everything you do.

    Check through your syllabus and mark off what you know already, and what you don't know. Call up your friends if you're in a panic coz' they will probably be in exactly the same situation.

    Lol, you could replace the 'Start of Term' on that graph with 'Start of Study Leave' for me. I can't believe I was so lazy as to do virtually nothing until the middle of half term.

    I think History is one of the worst papers. Coz' you have to study the entire syllabus, and only 2 topics come up!

    Now that is just ouch. :mad:

    AQA - I honestly know sweet FA in module 2 (macro). But I'm okay on module 1 (micro) because it's fairly easy. I'm going to just learn module 2 + 3 for 2 days, then do past papers on the last day of revision.

    In class we concentrated on housing and sport + leisure. But I'll have a scan over everything. Sport + leisure is meant to be the one which dumbasses choose to bang on about football clubs for half the question, but to score well on it is apparently v. hard. I'm good at housing though because it meshes with geography and it is nearly always linked to supply/demand and interest rates - which is quite easy to explain. Gov. failure for housing is quite easy too.

    6A's at AS?!

    omg wow!
    :eek:

    lol wat did u do?
    I pretend to like my subjects and in all honesty, although my revision was very very very bad, I am one of those who pay attention in class and do my work. So I guess that sort of helped.

    Lolz you guys are flattering me too much! STOP IT!
    Haha.. Well all could go badly this summer and 6As at AS doesn't mean that I could get 6As for A2s.. so you know, shhhhh! I just hope I can maintain it. I really want to do well because I've never been an awesome student so this could be my chance to finally achieve something.

    And yeh.. Cambridge doesn't look for exam results only. I'm not a very 'interview' person - especially since I'm not British and I have a hard time understanding your accents! But yeh.. I wouldn't have fit in Cam anyway. Getting good exams is one thing, but being truly clever is another. Unfortunately, I was born average.. but that's okie
