    I have just finished watching all the Maths videos from the unit and have practiced a lot of questions from the exercise book. I was planning to do a past paper straight away rn but I don't think I can bc I'm feeling really tired + sick. Think I'll take a 25 min nap first to recover ..lol, then start one afterwards.

    Depending on the weight of the coursework, if you try really hard, you could still potentially get a low A.

    Hey, I'm really sorry to hear that your coursework didn't turn out as great as you wanted but I agree with Nomophobia. I don't think 20% means you have lost all chance in achieving an A grade at all and I suppose, you should maybe try and think of it like.. there's even more reason for you to revise harder now so you can get it bc it won't be as easy. Yes, it could've gone better and I wish it had for you too but it's still do-able. At least I think it is bc we were told by our teachers last year that we could get a U grade in our coursework and still achieve an A overall and ours was worth 25% so idk.

    Don't lose hope, and even if you don't get the A then at least you know you tried your best with it instead of giving up. You can do this.:hugs:

    Well I'm glad you're still trying your hardest despite everything. - Yeah, I completely understand + it's only natural for you to feel that way. I really hope you feel better soon, all the hard work will be worth it in the end even if it may not feel that way at the moment. You're more than welcome + I appreciate it lots. Yay.

    20% definitely isn't a deal breaker - you can still totally get that A if you really, really want it.

    Food is the best. :yep: I've just had a mug of hot chocolate and the teeniest marshmallows that semi-melted in it and it was the best :woo:

    Have fun!
