    yes true,
    panicking does make the situation worse
    but it helps you to actually do work

    but since I'm not even panicking , I dont know when I'll get a grip and get some work done lol

    I've completely panicking inside but I definitely won't show it in front of people (hopefully)

    I don't understand why I am though, considering this: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3897511

    Does anyone have any ways to make revision more varied?

    It looks like you're doing a lot already (more than me lol) but you could try mindmapping different topics by getting a piece of A3 and writing down everything you can remember from the topic. You could start off by getting some of the summary questions for a topic (e.g. the ones in the CGP books) and answering them. Then look at your textbook/revision guide and add everything you didn't remember to the mindmap in a different colour or underlined or something, to make it clear what you don't know. This method also works for geography when you're learning case studies.

    Oooh now then - I never considered putting the summary questions in mind maps - I am definitely going to try that. And thanks for this because if it works for Geography case studies then these are my biggest weakness - your help has been invaluable

    Good luck with your studies

    I've only done acids and bases revision for chemistry which is an easy topic anyways so I'm not sure why I wasted my time doing 51 pages of past paper questions?

    Other than that, I've done nothing. Half term is meant for relaxing not studying in my eyes. Will probably start revising once I go to school and every teacher will start banging on about the importance of revision and how I should have already started.
