    Obviously I'm already panicking (Given my subjects are Bio, Chem, Physics)

    I do bio, chem, psychology and RS. I don't really feel the panic yet, when are you going to start revision or have you already?

    I do Spanish, Sociology, Music Technology and English Language.

    I'm most concerned about Sociology, everything else will come in due course. Second of my worries is MT coursework and EPQ. I get extremely anxious and panicked in exam conditions, I've currently got my mocks so I'm concentrating on getting through each one before worrying about the actuals.

    Spanish - I'm listening to Spanish news and music over my usual programmes, talking to Spanish friends 3 times a week, reading Spanish news and writing all my messages in Spanish. It comes with time and practice.

    English Language - revising key techniques to answering big questions, like a framework, a few gender theories. Most of it is in my brain ability anyway you know?

    Sociology - well... I'm going to do a bit every night until the exam. Mock is tomorrow. Winging it.

    Music Tech - I produce in my own time, all of the technology and electronic side of the course I know like the back of my hand already eg. EQ as I use it for my hobby. Coursework is mounting up but I'm getting through it chunk by chunk. The styles are probably the most content heavy.

    EPQ - Gojng to fail

    Yess Unit 1 is really easy, I didn't revise at all last year which is why I got a C, I already know the content and have worked on the AS topics during A2 so all I need to do is some quick revision and then as many past papers as possible to learn from common mistakes. In fact I might revise for a week then leave 2 weeks for past papers idk

    Yep, already entered panic mode. Doing about 3-4 hours a night. Going through loads of past papers and stuff.
