    What's wrong? If it's noise - try wearing headphones/ earplugs and listen to some music which helps you relax.

    You can try find an online/ mobile timer and set for approx 40 or 20 mins, whatever you feel you can definitely do at first and you can do more study if you feel like you can carry on! Then do whatever you want in breaks as long as you don't take a break longer than an hour!

    Hope this helps

    Good luck - you CAN do it! I've got to read up on and complete organic chemistry before we do it in class!

    Today so far I got a B in the C2 paper I did.Happy with that, made some silly lazy mistakes such as expanding (3sinx + cosx)^2 to 9sin^2x + cos^2x :O I also messed up a trapezium rule question involving trigonometry by typing in the actual values and getting all muddled up rather than just putting it as 0.25 (sin0 + sin2 + 2(sin0.5 + sin1 + sin1.5) which meant the calculator did most of the work.

    Currently doing the first section of C4 trig.

    I recommend the pomodoro technique for people struggling. http://pomodorotechnique.com/

    Um, well considering there's not much time left- I'd probably recommend that you fully focus on tomorrow's exam, today. Like, just try your best to get as much as done possible then spend the whole of tomorrow night on the Cold war stuff... - is it a real/proper exam? >.<

    Good luck!


    Yeah it is, I'll try anyways. Thanks for the advice!

    Theres a good revision technique you can do.

    You need paper and two coloured pens - preferably black and another colour (maybe green or orange - something bright).

    Choose the topic you want to revise (eg. limestone) and using the black pen write down everything you can remember without a revision guide, book or anything that will give you the answers.
    (you can use a checklist for this as long as it doesn't give answers - just what you need to learn. A checklist may say something like "know the stages of the limestone cycle").

    Afterwards, look at your revision guide, book, website or whatever you revise from and see what points you missed. Write them on the page in a different colour. This colour will make the points stand out so you remember them.

    Finally, write all the points you missed in the second colour again without looking at the the revision materials or your corrections. If you want then add the points you remembered the first time. This whole process helps you remember as many points as possible and fill the gaps in your knowledge

    Hope this helps

    Try not to feel awful!
    What helps me is to plan what I will study each night before morning session - this helps me feel more in control of my study.
    Hope this helps
