    If you feel like you would lose too much revision time, then maybe it would be better to leave your expedition for now. If you do decide to leave it, go on the DofE website activity finder, where there are links to lots of open expeditions for reasonable prices. There are plenty in the summer holidays too.
    On the other hand, it might be good to get away from exam stress for a while!

    People keep saying it'll be good to get out of my head but it's 7 days and I have 8 weeks until my first exam , I think im just giving into pressure around me to do it because we've got basically everything sorted for 6 people in a group and I've already given in all my money but my grades are so much more important to me than money , thanks for telling me there's opportunities to do it in the summer that's good to know

    DofE won't mean **** if you get a U in the real exam, trust me I got a B in AS and U in A2, retaking it this year, because I prioritised my time badly. Focus on the exams you are struggling on now, while you have time.
