    Today I have done:
    French listening paper- A*
    Marked French reading paper-A*
    Received English language mock result- A*
    One hour of French vocab learning (vocab express)
    One hour of decision maths revision
    Decision maths past paper to be marked by teacher
    45 minutes of various revision cards (courtesy of brainzistheword)
    And a whole lot of time having a minor breakdown because of IT, but I'm feeling a bit better now and I'm just going to do whatever I can in the face of the absolute mess the teaching staff have made of the subject... But hey ho!

    Oh and I'm about to wash my hair and wind down before revising some of the poetry anthology and beginning a business studies past paper- wish me luck!
    I'm also getting stressed about prom, considering my last exam is the morning of prom as well so I have no time after exams to sort anything out. And regarding the previous posts, I get study leave but late in May- not until after the English language exam. What do everyone's schools do about leavers hoodies? I'm already wearing mine to school as we can wear them throughout the whole exam period as uniform which is nice!

    English is the one I struggle most with myself - make sure you have a good bank of varied vocab and do practice papers and take them to your teachers to mark - this is the best way

    I'm also getting stressed about prom, considering my last exam is the morning of prom as well so I have no time after exams to sort anything out. And regarding the previous posts, I get study leave but late in May- not until after the English language exam. What do everyone's schools do about leavers hoodies? I'm already wearing mine to school as we can wear them throughout the whole exam period as uniform which is nice!

    Prom is stressing me out too, we're trying to sort out transport and it's a nightmare! Wow, your prom is early - mines on July 1st
    We only get to wear our Leavers hoodies after our Leavers Assembly, which is annoying!
