    sorry if this in the wrong forum but i just needed a little vent before i start my day...
    I've gone the whole AS year fairly unstressed, kept on top of all my work, revised for my mocks and got AAAA (my aim for the real exams, oh dear), have all my revsion notes up to date and yet I am stressed as anything right now! I feel i have so much to do and no time! I do OCR Biology (I'm so scared for this exam, the new style exam is awful), Edexcel History, OCR Sociology and AQA English Lit.
    I've learnt the majority of the stuff I've already done in class. There's some weak areas, but it's mostly alright.
    The thing i'm stressed most about is how far behind we are in Biology?? We still have half a topic (classification) and a full topic (i think it's called biodiversity) left !!! There's so much we've missed on the spec it seems? I'm not sure why we're so far behind, does anyone else have this problem?
    Anyway, that's my little vent done. Again, apologies if this is in the wrong forum. Just thought i'd post and get my frustration out - feel free to do the same, it's healthy
    Good luck everyone

    Skip ahead of the biology class and just do it at home to save time.

    I think that's the most sensible idea, thank you

    Nah I've got this. My revision last year was a mess though. I've learnt from my mistakes.

    I've accepted the fact that my biology teachers can't teach. Instead of complaining, I just went through the syllabus at home and use class time to do practice questions. Meanwhile my teacher tries to make year 13 students do word searches and heads down thumbs up to try and "improve their memory". I swear he's crazy. I genuinely think everyone paying attention to him will fail.

    As for maths, It just depends on what i get in d1. I should get comfortable A's/A*s in C3, C4 and M1. But I'm also retaking d1 and it's aids

    Rethink stress.

    It can be a good thing, it can push you to work harder and get better grades. During the exams, it increases blood flow to the brain - stress is there to help

    Regular exercise helps me when I'm stressed. It releases a chemical called serotonin which is the feel good hormone. #gcsepe. Hope this helped.
