    Alright your response went from 100 to 0 real quick. The first part, I'm taking that onboard for my CA tomorrow. I don't think im going to bullsh*t?....
    As long as you're doing a ton of linking, new ideas, interpretations and etc you'll get the marks. You gotta write quick though if you want to get all your points in
    My coursework was on comparing Macbeth to wuthering heights and I wrote 22 sides of A4 but got full marks. The more different imaginative things you write the better. Pick good, short quotes that you've a lot to say about

    Glad I can be of use to you - and yeah if I am online I will - just to let you know though I might be in bed because I am absolutely knackered. Do you go online before school like 7 ish? Because I am online from 6:30 if I ain't online later
    I use to revise from 5:30 to 7 am in the morning, for my 11+.....

    I could try to get that schedule going. But yeah, I'll be on.

    I'm gonna type it up today. Send it to you. I'll be on from 5:30.

    One of many.

    I'm not going to give my personal reasons for why I don't want to try. Sorry if yo had an easy option where stuff gets served to you rather than going to get it.


    We all have different reasons.

    Just cos you never heard it ,doesn't mean it's wrong?

    First guy to say the Earth was a sphere got killed. Absolutely ridiculous.

    Thank you.

    I'm not really gonna respond to your response unless it's somehow helpful....
    So basically you are going to throw away your chances of getting decent qualifications and a good career because of some list of reasons, one being your parents will boast about it. Sorry but everything is wrong with that because you are just going to **** up your future because of some stuff at the moment.

    Ok no problem, I will definitely look at it for you before you do it at school.

    You might want to try that schedule again, it may well be the boost you need, you never know

    Yeah course! What subjects you doing? For GCSEs (and AS levels lol) I did one topic a day everyday before the exam. Ie if say Biology B2 had 30 topics, I'd start 30 days before the exam. You've got plenty of time

    Revise for maths and further maths together, you should be fine really.

    For the sciences all you really have to do is just remember the content, there isn't really a ton of application. Just make sure you've read through the whole textbook for each science before the exam.

    I did Spanish instead of French but I had a wall of words that I don't know yet from all the vocab pages. The more words you can recognise the better. Practice the tenses too

    History is once again memorisation. I did it in year 10 and it was really easy for me. The essays will be marked as full marks as long as you include all the facts they ask for.

    You'll be fine, just start revision, bit by bit everyday

    It is not too late at all, assuming your coursework is good but you seem smart so dw.

    If you are a procrastinator like me, I have an amazing suggestion.

    Wanna know the best thing to do at this point in time?

    Your're so right it's almost making me smile :/.
    Keep going. Think of when you open your results and see 8A*s and 3As, what is that gonna make you feel like? And keep that thought in your head and let it motivate you.
