    I'm kind of freaking out.

    My first exam is May 19th. I'm doing (AS) RE, English Lit&Lang, Art and French, all WJEC.

    I've got a deadline for my art coursework, which is May 5th. I know that I'm dropping French at A2, and so I'm fine with putting that subject on the backburner, but in terms of grades, I'm aiming for all (or at least mostly) B's at AS.

    Mock Results
    English Lit: E
    English Lang: A
    RE: B
    French: U
    (art is coursework based, but in my last unit of coursework I had a B)


    I revise so much but there's so much to study and I just don't think I have time to do it all. I technically started revising in February but I've been so busy (college/home life etc) that I barely made any headway. I'm fast running out of time and I'm so scared.

    So...can someone either: Give me real and serious advice on hardcore studying, or at least just tell me it's all going to be OK. Lie if you have to, seriously. I'm in that much of a blind panic right now.

    Hi Cari98

    There's still plenty of time until the exams; it seems like your English language and RE grade is good; so just keep doing what you're doing at the minute and you should be okay. Your Art grade looks quite good aswell; so it's just your English literature you have to pull up right now.

    I would suggest getting hold of your exam boards specification for English literature and doing quite a lot of past papers. Some people do up to 9 hours revision a day leading up to exams so maybe do that in English lit? Ask your teacher where you are going wrong on your work. If you need to learn a book, just do it at night when you get home

    Sure, I could lie to make you feel better.

    Or I could tell you the truth.

    If you don't wanna get bad grades, it's time to do some actual work.

    Nothing more to it.
